Shopping our Stash #125 - Stitching, Real or Faux


When given a choice between real or faux stitching, I'm pretty sure you can all guess which one I chose! For Shopping our Stash this week, we want you to play with stitches (not necessarily the creepy Halloween frankenstein kind....)


Supplies: sun stamp from Market Street Stamps; sentiment from PTI; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Paper Smooches cloud dies; BUTTONS! RHINESTONES! 


A big old happy :)

I love it when I love how cards turn out just the way I wanted - occasionally they grow on me, but some I just love from the start :)

Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, November 4th hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


I generally copy & paste the design team links part of my post, changing whatever I need to...so last week's post I mentioned that I hadn't slept Monday night....and lo and behold, I was up way too late last night too. Is Monday my new Friday night? I don't know. But I have a dentist appointment this morning & can't nap until 10 AM. I'm not sure I'm gonna make it. 

xoxo,
Jessi
