FMS300 and JAI372 Stitched Hi


Hi everyone!  Yay, it's Saturday...lazy, kickback kind of day today!  It's cloudy and dreary so I spent a little extra time in my stamp room this morning, making a card using the 300th FMS sketch and the pretty JAI colors:

 

 Thursday night I went to a craft night at my local library....people just bring projects that they're working on, so I brought a Paper Pumpkin kit and got caught up on a few projects.  A couple of women were working on sewing projects and one of them gave all of us some sewing-themed bandaids she got at a local fabric store.  Aren't these CUTE:


 Adorable!   I wanted to thank her, so I pulled out a Paper Smooches set that I just had to have and have barely inked up, called Needle Little Love, and here's what I came up with:



 I did a little paper piecing with some Pool Party DSP for the sewing machine, adding a little enamel dot, along with a "stitched" sentiment and little needle:


 I stamped both the Tranquil Tide and Powder Pink panels with images from the set and added a line of cross stitches along the outside edges of the thick white cardstock base, along with a little Powder Pink ribbon:


 And on the inside, I combined one of the sentiments with a past Paper Pumpkin sentiment and stamped it on a Stitched Shape square and added a little Pool Party button:


Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

LeAnne this is super cute. Great use of those challenge colors and the FMS. Love the pieced sewing machine and the cleverly placed enamel dot. But my favorite is the "stitched" sentiment with the needle. Have a great weekend!
