Stitching-Melanie's Turn

Good afternoon lovely blogging friends! Today is my turn to share a card here at Sundays With Crissy, and I am absolutely in love with the challenge this month...Stitching!! I tend to add machine stitching to most of my cards. Now, if the thought of using a sewing machine on your project does not appeal to you, your stiching can also be done by hand...or it can even be faux stitching!!

The digital stamp I chose to work with today is Crissy Armstrong's "Maya Making Wishes" available at Whimsy Stamps. Crissy captures the sweet innocence of childhood so beautifully in this image...do you remember making wishes on dandelions? Sometimes as adult, I think we forget how to find joy in life's small moments and simple pleasures. :)

For details on products and techniques used on my card (including a list of Copics used), please feel free to visit my blog, Paper Blessings.

There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by Random.org at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

Your projects can be linked up on SARAH'S POST...just look for the little blue Inlinkz frog at the end of her post.
