Here I Go Again!

Well, I'm batting 1000 - late again for posting what should have been done Friday night. I just don't know where the time goes anymore!

Our challenge for Saturday's Paper a la Mode Challenge over at The Outlawz this week is to use stitching on our projects. It can be either machine or hand stitching, but it has to have some sort of thread on the project.

Confession time: I recently bought a new sewing machine - about a month ago - and it's still in the box. I have been holding out on setting it up because I wanted to get my craft room purged and rearranged, but at the rate I'm going, that will be next year this time. So ... I had to use hand stitching. But I thought it turned out pretty - sort of an embroidery effect. I like a lot of texture to my cards and layouts, so on what would have been a rather CAS design, the stitching adds a lot of "oomph"!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be a bit more proactive this week in getting my blog post done! Hugs to you!
