Paper Take Weekly Challenge - A Stitch In Time xx

FirstlyI would like to thank Steph for giving me the opportunity to join the fabulously awesome PWT design Team xxxx. I am sooo chuffed peeps, I cannot tell you xxxx And thank you to the other DT girls for making me feel welcome xxxx I do appreciate it, being the new girl and all that!!!


So onto this weeks challenge, which is a stitch in time, which is simply to use stitching on your project! It can be real or faux!



I've gone for faux seeing as my sewing machine is somewhere in the depths of my spare room and I would need a search party worthy of the SAS to find it!!! Some of these are hand drawn and some are rub ons.

I'm sure if you look carefully you will be able to tell which is which lol xxxx

Just for a change, I have used my MSBP (yes, it is a bit sad when I am down to abbreviations, safe in the knowledge that you will know what I am talking about!!). The papers are all K & Co, as is the flower which is from a press out book (it's just fabulous!!). The little brad is Poppicrafts with a bit of bling stuck on the top, the sentiment is from the PP Tiny Tags set and the ribbon is from my stash. Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT 's work cos it is uber fabbytastic.


I hope you are all having a fab bank holiday btw and hope the weather is better for you than us - grey and horrible here.

Finally Mich at Poppicrafts is having a monster sale - 15% off this weekend - so pop over there and check it out.
TFS xxxx
