Stich it up

is our new challenge over at RoP/BnW challenge blog. It's our talented Rosette who is challinging us this time.

Well - I have been using faux stiches on all my cards earlier, but now I had to buy a Janome mini sewing machine - could not say no anylonger *lol*. Isac and I will use it together - that's at least what I told hubby...hihi.... (I have a regular one, but that one is almost never used - sadly enough).

I wanted to colour our new stamps from our BnW Fall release this weekend. The first one that I fell in love with is Hearty Thanksgiving. Don't you think they are just adorable. I can really picture Isac and his little cousin Julia on a bench together like this one day.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Sweden, but I wish we could. It always seems like a wonderful and cosy family-get-together.

Coloured the image with my copics. I used the Eskimo Kisses Glazed Apple DP and then it was time to use my mini machine. I'm in love already ;-). I also used a tiny bit of the Eskimo Kisses Rooftop DP as well and my Martha Stewart heart lace punch - also another thing that I truly love. Added button and flowers.
Well - what do you think about my first "real stiches" card? I know that I will be doing this a lot more now.

Make sure that you check out what the rest of the DTs have been up to and hope that you want to play along. You find all the details for the challenge here.
