Stitching! (;

Good evening, crafty peeps!!!

I'm here to quickly submit a card to the current Lawnscaping Challenge #54: Stitching!  (Entries close tomorrow!)  It's being sponsored by Lawn Fawn (my love! HA!) and the winner gets to pick any stamp set of their choice... I don't know about you, but that makes me leap for joy!!! (:

Yes, I finally dared to sit at the sewing machine--thanks to my good friend Lenny, and this Lawnscaping challenge... I kid you not, had it not been for them, I would've continued to run away from the sewing machine, as I used to be intimidated by it.  I'm SO glad I faced and conquered my fear!!! (;  heheh

Anyway, here is the challenge badge, as well as my card:




I hope I have inspired you to try out sewing if you haven't yet... It's so much fun, plus, the finishing touch it gives to your projects makes it appear more professional and chic (in my opinion).  I of course had to also use my spankin' new LF set "Good Fortune", which I absolutely adore!!!  And I also had a blast paper piecing each image, as well as heat embossing with silver... (:

Thank you all SO much for visiting me here on the blog today!!  I'm SO happy that you stopped by! :D I will "see" you back here soon!  Have a blessed and crafty evening (or day depending where in the world you are reading this from)! Xoxo

Love,

Grisel
