In Stitches

Do you feel like sewing on this week's project for the Crafty Creations challenge, or are you in need of a good laugh? Two options for our In Stitches theme this week and you can choose either if you'd like to enter! For my card I managed to combine both a fun image and sentiment with some stitching which I actually did on the machine this time as I had it out to make a batch of sock toys for an upcoming craft fair.

I'm afraid that product information is sadly lacking on this project - the image was one I got in a grab bag of unmounted rubber stamps from the US some years ago and the paper was part of a swap so no info on that. The Happy Birthday sentiment and the large felt flower are from Stampin Up and the tiny buttons are Docrafts. The other fabric flowers are part of a garland from Hobbycraft which I pulled apart for my card.

 

That's enough from me this morning - back to the machine now for some more monkey mayhem!
