Stitching with Kaboodle Doodles, and oh how you know I can't sew!!

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Spice

For my Happileigh Scrappin' post, please click here.

Hello! I know it seems like it's been a while since I last posted, but I promise behind the scenese I have been crafting up a storm for upcoming posts! ;) Lots of fun things coming for (hopefully) your viewing pleasure.

The challenge at Kaboodle Doodles this week is stitching. well y'all know I can't sew to save my life, so faux we go! even that leaves a lot to be desired, but I gave it the ol' college try just the same..... Our sponsor is The Crafty Pad who will provide the winner with 2 images from the store.

I used papers from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety collection, which were perfect to accompany this cute strawberry trio. the little seeds were highlighted with my white gel pen, which was also used for all of the faux stitching. buttons, a Prima centered with stickles, and a big splashy red ribbon finish off this simple little card.

Do come play along in the challenge at Kaboodle Doodles this week! You are sure to have a great time! :)

Wonderful berry card! I like that white gel pen faux stitching touch. . . this challenge at Kaboodles was my 1st dip or foray into stitching . . . would you believe but i started liking and enjoying it. Time consuming but love the resulting texture of it. =)
