What a busy few days I've had. So much to do, so little time. On top of that it was my elder daughter's 3rd birthday!! She had a great time! She got a few little presies and a big Air filled bouncy castle for the garden so is one happy little girl! We're off to the zoo this weekend too so she will enjoy that I hope. I, on the other hand, would love to climb into bed and sleep for at least 48 straight. I dare to dream! :)
Now onto this week's challenge over at Crafty Catz Challenge Blog... Naomi, the DTM would like you to use 'Stitching' this week. Real or faux stitching, just get creative for your chance to win a fabulous prize...

If someone says stitching to me my mind goes wild, because I love sewing, embroidery, knitting and crocheting. They all use stitches, right? Which makes me awfully curious to see what you will come up with...
I decided to design a simple flower that I could fill with my embroidery thread. So I drew lightly onto my front panel and pierced it first to make it easy to follow. When I was done with the flower I decided to take it a step further and did a bit of edge stitching on each side slipping a tiny sequin on each of my stitches. Yes, this was a bit time consuming, but I had fun. I adhered my front panel to a white card base with a dimensional tape and did the same with my embossed sentiment.
I had such a relaxed time making this card, I made a half of it on my sofa :) I wanted to keep it simple to show of the pretty embroidered details. On the other hand I had the worst time taking the photos to capture the pretty shiny sequins as well as the whole front. This is why I had to take it laying flat! I'm so going to have a light box!! Well, I hope you like the card and feel inspired to get 'stitching' :)
Whatever you decide to make I hope you have a great fun! Don't forget to visit the DTM's blogs for more inspiration, I can guarantee, you're up for a treat this week!
Have a lovely weekend! I'll be back with some more crafty goodies soon!
