This week we'd like to see stitching on your creations at Dream Valley Challenges. It can be faux stitching, sewing machine stitching or even hand stitching. Our sponsor this week is the fabulous One Stop Card Crafts who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher for their shop. Here is my attempt but go check out the fab creations from my teamies, such variety and talent.
I decided to do some cross stitch. I used to do it ages ago but as I haven't done any for a long, long time I went into Hobby Craft and bought one of their Christmas kits (very cheap!). It came complete with aida, thread (enough to do the robin twice) and even an embroidery needle. It took no time at all and was fun to do. I covered a card blank with paper that was free with a magazine and then cut an aperture with my round Nestabilities and mounted my cross stitch behind it. I framed my work with glitter card (also cut with nesties). The sentiment is from Habico Christmas Greetings stamped in Stampin' Up Red Riding Hood. I've also added a bit of faux stitching round the edge and too finish it off I added a couple of bits of bling.
