Practical Scrappers SSD sponsorship

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring Practical Stampers blog challenge this week. The theme is stitching, pretty easy, so give it a try! One lucky winner will get a SSD image of their choice.

I love stitching on my cards, it's pretty much the only use my sewing machine gets. Here I stitched the vellum embossed background to the peach cardstock. I love stitching vellum, since it is hard to adhere it without showing the adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a good weekend. We have a break in temps so it has been cooler.

We are working on painting Lilah's room a nice soft pink. Hopefully I'll post some pics, if it turns out how I'm picturing it. Funny thing is we painted it lavender before she was born, then I couldn't find bedding to go with the color. Silly to pick paint first. My hubby is probably ready to kill me, LOL! I told him, I think Lilah will love the pink room and he said "I'm sure she would have been fine with purple." He's being a very good sport about it, especially since he has two apprentice painters aged 4 and 6 working with him. I think I'm going to owe him big!

Paper: PTI ssw, bazzil peach (2 different shades), SU vellum cardstock, Garden Green
