Happy Monday! OMGosh! It is hot!!!! How is the weather over where you are? I just came back in from watering my poor parched gardens. We were out and about all weekend so they were very neglected by me. They were looking as wilted as I felt.
Today I have my card for this month’s Stamp & Create Challenge to show you. On the first Friday of each month we will have a new challenge for you. Lacey has changed the ruled slightly so that you can use any stamp that you wish. You just need to mention our challenge and place a link in your post to us. Here is the terrific prize you can win:
The theme of our challenge is “STITCHING”. It can be machine, hand, or even faux. Can you tell which one I used? You have until August 2nd to enter. ~Here~ is a link to the challenge post.
Yup….I chose the faux stitching option. I am just not that comfortable stitching on my cards yet. I paper pierced around the edge of my paper and then I just added the stitch lines with a fine tip sharpie. I used this amazing Kraftin’Kimmie stamp. Isn’t he a hoot? I colored him up to match my DP and I used the wonderful sketch from this week’s Truly Scrumptious challenge.
- Stamps: Kraftin’ Kimmie: Moonlight Whispers Jack
- Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
- Paper: SU! Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Cosmo Cricket Joyride
