Anything Goes at CCCC

Hello Everyone!

Oh I am such a terrible blogger for here I was thinking this post had been scheduled when all along it was sitting here in drafts. Now I am behind in telling you about the newest challenge at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenges. Our theme this fornight is a super easy one - for it's


So no excuses, I expect to see you entering your next creation, pronto. See how bossy I can be?

Our challenge is sponsored this time by Crafty Sentiments, who are offering our winner 4 free digis. I was lucky enough to play with this little cutie from their collection - Just Relax (Amy).

I tried something I hadn't tried before for this card - I stamped the sentiment directly onto the DP (a risky thing if you knew how many times I completely botch up stamping things). I then entered far higher risk territoy and got the sewing machine out. I am proud of the stitching on this one, it's mostly straight and mostly how I intended, bar some issues turning corners. Let's just say that I didn't intend to add a little flower.. it's covering up the bit that didn't go so well!

Oh well, I am determined to add beautiful sewing to my cards, so I have to learn and there are bound to be mistakes along the way. I guess it goes with the territory.
Please pop over to CCCC and see what my fabulous teammates have created, and enter your own project.

Thanks for visiting and for your wonderful comments as always.

Wow, you risk taker you! Stamping right on the DP. EEEEK...well, you have mad skills and I drink too much coffee, bad for stability. I love your stitching on your beautiful card. Did the paper stick in the die? I have a couple that just love to mutilate my work.
