Wait a minute...

...just as I started to type, I realized that I combined these challenges last week. BUT, it did result in my very first shout-out from The Pink Elephant, so it must have worked! This week's challenge at The Pink Elephant is Mother's Day, and I'm popping in again with Virginia's View for the stitching challenge. 


Supplies: stickers & paper from Sassafrass; chipboard letters from KI Memories; bits of lace trim, buttons, embroidery floss from stash

I enjoyed making my card for the current Shopping our Stash challenge so much that I made another one with the same basic supplies :) The star & heart stickers are stitched on as well - dusting baby powder on the back deactivates the sticky, and lets you sew without gunking up your needle. 

I imagine I'll be popping in with more for Virginia's challenge, because I am stitching on everything these days, feels like. Except for the major under-the-fingernail-stab this morning, I'm finding it really relaxing!

xoxo,
Jessi

Jessi, this is so pretty! Love the big alphabet letters! Very nice. You sound like me and make a card and then realize the challenge is all said and done!

Way to showcase your stitching skills, Jessi! I love the machine stitching and hand stitching that you incorporated into your heart and stars (love the tip BTW) and borders! Thank you SEW much for playing Virginia's View Challenge!

BAH! I did NOT need to hear about your needle accident. Now my finger is going to hurt all evening in sympathy.

Fun card with all its stitching though! I love that you added bits of this and that to pull it all together.
