Combined Challenges

Morning! I've combined both of my DT challenges for today,
using this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday, our sponsor this week is Anne from Ah! La Carte where you can win 2 adorable wild rose studio stamps, and everyone gets 10% off their next purchase using the code provided.
The other challenge is Sweet Stampin which has a theme of 'stitching' this week, our sponsor for the month of September is Wink Wink Ink, where the lucky winner will get to choose 3 fabulous images from their store.

Here's my card...

I love this Santa image! it's from Bugaboo Stamps, and is called 'Bobblehead Santa'
The papers are by SU, from their 'real red' colour collection.
Now, you might not want to look at my hand stitching around the oval piece of foam! stitching is NOT my strong point lol
unless it's faux stitching then i'm ok with that ;)
see how much neater the faux stitching on the striped paper is? Yes? ok look at that instead lol ;)
The bauble embellies were stamped from a Dovecraft clear stamps set, coloured then glittered, I added a small piece of very thin black cardstock at the back of each bauble to create the hanging loop.
Sentiment is hand written.

Thank you for stopping by today, please go take a look at the work by both design teams, you can find links to their fabulous blogs in my sidebar >>>

Enjoy your weekend! xx


  1. I think the stitching is cool! You're being too hard on yourself. This is a super card, I can never pull off handwritten sentiments!! xxx

  2. I was scrolling down my reading list and I saw this. I thought to myself I've seen that before, omg i've seen that before, i must have had a dream or become psychic or something. Cool! Then i realised i had commented on it on the SS DT blog. Doh!
    Still totally love it and i still think your hand stitching looks good!
