A Stitching Challenge at Some Odd Girl!!

Sorry, I have slipped off the radar slightly. I had a lot going on last week, made me re-look various aspects of my life!!! As a result my creativity went missing, it happens I suppose!!

Anyway, after seeing all the cards for the first new Some Odd Girl clear stamp release I was inspired!! As I have said before, I L-O-V-E these stamps SO SO much, they are my kind of stamps. I decided to play along with their latest challenge which is to use sewing on your card. Easy challenge for me, I sew on my cards ALL the time!!




The Some Odd Girl digi image I used on my card is called "Love Letter Kaylee" and she is available HERE. The recipe card digi image I used as a background stamp is from The Stamping Boutique, I love what it added to my card, and I can see I am going to use this loads, on cards and scrapbook pages!! I won it last week, so that was a bonus!! The sentiment was stamped for me by a dear crafting friend!!

I AM ENTERING MY CARD IN THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGES:

~ Some Odd Girl - Stitching
~ Pink (Ink) Sketch - Sketch
~ Allsorts Challenge Blog - Flowers & Swirls (the swirls were cut with my MM Slice)
~ Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Vintage/shabby

Thanks so much for dropping by today, I hope you have all been keeping well!!!
