Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge - Stitch 'em up!


Our new challenge over at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog has just started and this week our talented designer Tina is asking to see stitching on our cards or creations. This can stitching using your machine, by hand or faux. I love to see stitching on cards but to be honest me and my sewing machine have never been friends! I cheated big time by choosing to use stitched ribbon ;-) Hey.. it's stitched! Just not by me :-) The designers have done an amazing job again this week and lots of eye candy for you!

I am still playing with my distress inks and loving them so much! I have used them again to colour in the beautiful image Angel Whispers. I have been dying to use these Cosmo Cricket papers for a few weeks now. The papers are such fabulous quality and I love the colours in this Early Bird collection. I used the circle nestabilites and also a new toy - Nellie's Multi Frame die. I will have these in stock next week :-) Other products used: Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and 4mm flat back Pearls in new golden yellow. All Martha Stewart punches are currently 10% off.

Can't wait to see you creations. If you want to play along too but don't have any Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps. You can purchase them here. We ship worldwide!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend and see you Sunday for the next High Hopes challenge.

Hugs,


Nikki's Angel Whisper
