Wild Stitches

It is Wednesday and that means another challenge over at Paper Pretties! This week was scary for me...we were asked to used some form of sewing on our creation! As you can tell, I cannot sew well at all...not even in a straight line, but I think that just adds character, no? ;)

(And of course you could have used faux sewing, but if I tried that my little Janome Sew-Mini would have mocked me the entire time I made the card, being quite the distraction.)

One random lucky participant this week will win the set "One of these Days" You do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps in order to play along, but if you do, you will get a bonus entry into the drawing! Please be sure to mention our challenge and link back to the Paper Pretties blog in your project posting. When uploading to SCS or PCP please use keyword PWC138.

When I chose to use this darling stamp set, I immediately thought of attitude and sassiness! Don't you just love that shoe?! And I knew I had the perfect paper to pair it with (no pun intended)!

Stamps: Sassy Shoes (Paper Pretties)
Paper: Basic Black, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Zebra paper from my stash
Ink: Versafine Black, Copics to color
Accessories: ribbon, Stickles, rhinestones, circle/scalloped circle nestabilities, my trusty ol' Janome Sew-Mini :)


We are having a little warm spell here! Tomorrow's forecast...a high of 7! YES! A positive 7! It is the little things...;)

Hope you have a blessed day!

I like the sewing, who cares if it isn't straight it looks like its supposed to be that way. You're better than me I have yet to sew on a card. I love this one, love that shoe!

Aagh! LOVE this card! There's just something about pink & black, bling, and heels that makes a girl's heart thump... even though I never really wear that stuff! The whole card looks awesome! Enjoy your "heat wave" :)

Zowie! that shoe stamp is fabulous and of course the DP is soooo cute. I can't believe you didn't hoard it? I know about the Janome, mine YELLED at me the whole time I was faux stitching, I finally had to cover it to shut it up! LOL.
