Random Amusing Challenge 85

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend and a great World Card Making Day. My apologies for the late post... I have been busy prepping for my class at Scrapbook Parade tonight.

The challenge for this week is to do some stitching/sewing on your card or project. It can be real or faux, whatever strikes your fancy. I actually managed to clear off a large enough corner on my craft table to leave my sewing machine set up so I have real stitching on my card. If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword GRAC85. If you play along, please leave a comment here and link back to this post from your post. Thanks to Martha, Dori, Katie and one of my crafty girls Jo for playing along last week!

On to the winner of my World Card Making Day Blog Candy. Random. org picked...

  1. great card Glenda. i have a set of faux stitching stamps that i HAD to have, and they've barely been inked... maybe this week :)

  2. I just made a card to meet your challenge...which I must admit, I sew on ALL my cards ;)


  3. Yahoo, thanks Glenda!! Can't wait to see what comes in the mail:)

  4. LOVE your card! Great layout and color combo! Sewing on cards... not something I'll ever try as I don't have a sewing machine :) But a fun challenge for those that do!
