A Stitch In Time-Creative Craft Challenges

Hello!  I'm trying to get back on schedule and back into my crafting groove as it's been a bit of a struggle the past few months.  I lost my Dad in February, in the middle of our Basketball and Cheerleading season at work.  Once we got the season over with, then I got to work on settling Mom & Dad's estate, which still isn't over.  Then we got the estate auction scheduled and spent weeks boxing up all their things, while also having Summer Daycamp at work.  Now both of those are over and I'm having a yard sale this weekend that I promised my husband I would do to clean out the garage/storage/closets..... 

Anyway....the challenge at Creative Craft Challenges this week is "Stitch In Time".  I did get the chance to make this card with a couple of cute images from our sponsor
  They were generous enough to give us a few digi stamps to work with and I combined 2 of them.

I freely admit that my faux stitching by hand is just as straight and even as my machine stitching in real life!  :)
But my coloring didn't turn out too bad!  I used my Spectrum Noir markers and the stamp is from K Andrews.  The papers are from my stash and I don't know whose they are.

This stamp is from Hero Arts and the stitching is all done with metallic gel pens.  The stamps are inked with Studio G chalk ink.

Come on over and join us with some stitching!  See you there!
