House of Cards September Challenge: Stitch It Up


I hope you've had a great start to your week.  This week seems to be flying by for me, which is great, since we have a three day weekend coming up.  I'm going to try to be a bum, and do as little as possible.  I will probably BBQ though, at least once.  I did promise my girl a movie, so we'll probably do that too.  Looks like being a bum may have to take a backseat to the list that is now growing for me. lol 

I'm here today to bring you the next challenge over at House of Cards.  September's challenge is Stitch It Up.  You can use real or faux stitching, as long as there is some kind of stitching on your project.

 Here is the card I made.

I used a few of my stitched border dies for this one, and really like the bright, cheerful outcome.  All of the items on this card are also from my August Simon Says Stamp card kit.  I kept it fairly simple, in an attempt to showcase the cute puffy stickers and the stitching.  I'm excited to have another card to add to my stash.

I do hope you'll head over to the HOC blog to see what everyone has created for you today.  This month will be filled with more beautiful projects, and lots of cool new techniques.  I hope you'll get to play along, so that I can stop by and leave you some blog love too.

I'm off to work, and then going to meet some friends for dinner.  I wish you a great day!
