High Hopes Challenge #3!! - Sew What?!!


First of all, let me wish all my Canadian stamper friends a safe and turkey-filled Thanksgiving, filled with family and friends....and if you're lucky, a little rubber and ink too!!

Today's High Hopes challenge is to SEW on your card! Whether it's real sewing or fake sewing, we got lots of stitches on our designs! I'll show you mine and then you can show me yours!!! *wink*

I decided to make a Christmas card using the Christmas Treat stamp with Santa Claus and his little puppy pal. The card base is a 6x6 Very Vanilla square with Real Red matting and the patterned paper is called Holiday Lane by SEI. I made my matted dp panels and sewed them first before I attached them to the card base, just in case I made a booboo while sewing.....or rather just in case my sewing machine ate them!

I coloured the image in using my Copic markers and added some wide red grosgrain ribbon across the bottom. I attached some Imaginisce poinsettias using a Basic Grey brad and pop dotted the sentiment which is from Verve Visual. It's a very simple design but I think the sewing and the wide ribbon make it look elegant.




Hope you can join in the Sewing challenge this week. Head on over to the HH Blog and check out what the other Divas have whipped up for your viewing pleasure!!!

Well, we are jumping in the car and heading to my parents' house this afternoon for some yummy turkey dinner and pie for dessert. Hope you get to enjoy some delicious homemade yummies too!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

Fabulous, Kim! This card is very cute and elegant card all in one. I wish I could play along with the HH challenge...I guess I have to get me some of those stinkin' cute HH stamps first, smile!
Happy Turkey day!!!! Hope you have a great day with your family! We are doing our dinner at my parents tomorrow...I wouldn't dare attempt to cook a turkey (and no one would dare to eat it if I did), he he he!

Hi Kimmie...your blog is wonderful. I found you on Whiff of Joy and you are all so talented! I'm new to the blogging thing and have found so many stamp lines- can't wait to try them all lol. This card is adorable, as they all are- especially like the moose card-too cute. Thanks for the chance to win! Hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving.
