Papertake Weekly............


Hello a very good afternoon to you,

I have discovered that I am useless at sewing. This week's challenge in the Papertake Weekly is a stitch in time. I used the new Tim Holz ruler to make my holes onto the paper fantastic. Then I started sewing with some gold thread not so fantastic. Oh well faux stitching for me I think. I have mounted my little Magnolia onto sticky fix's and then onto a cuttlebug shape that I stamp with vintage photo and then glimmer misted. All my papers are MME.

Thanks so much for looking.

I think your stitching is fantastic Kim! You wouldn't see me hand stitching a card any time this century!!! I very much admire your gusto. Such a beautiful card. I love the stamped, scalloped circle, think I'm going to have to get some flourishy stamps. Your Tilda is so pretty sitting on her little ribbon seat. Hugs, Chris xxx
