New Sentimental Sundays Challenge

Today's Sentimental Sundays challenge is "Stitching (real or faux, with a sentiment).  I did lots of random machine stitching on my card (I love this look) & luckily the sewing machine was already threaded with the perfect matching thread to my papers :D.  I did some distressing around the edges of the papers (which are digi), the image is from Pink Petticoat (coloured with ProMarkers) & I finished the card with some lace, a punched tag & a gem.  Our sponsor this week is Meljens so you could win yourselves some wonderful images.

The challenges:
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Ribbon or Lace
Craft Your Passion - Ribbons or Lace
Crafty Boots - Flowers 
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi 
No Matter Which - Anything Goes 
Whimsy Stamps - Stitch It Up!

I hope you're having a nice weekend, I haven't been up to much (well it has been very cold with the occasional snow flurry), just snuggling up with hubby (his football match was called off), watching TV & drinking tea :o)  I really must try & start tidying my craft room today though I can't find anything!
