Happy Wednesday! We got some much needed rain today and while it didn't stick around too much, it was a refreshing change. I have another Just Us Girls Challenge for you today. This week was a technique challenge and it was the dreaded stitching challenge!! Don't get me wrong, I love the look of stitching on projects. I just can't do it. I don't have a sewing machine and my hand stitching always looks like it has been done by a 1st grader. I think my daughter could do a better job!! Anyway...on with the show...
I decided to make a little hostess gift this week. This is the Around the Town template from Papertrey Ink, the mini version. You'll see that I stitched around the matting for the challenge.
I found my paper pack of Urban Prairie papers by Basic Grey. I've been hoarding it so well I forgot I had it, LOL!!! The patterned paper is from that pack and the cardstock and polka dotted paper are Papertrey Ink.
The sentiment is Papertrey Ink, too. I forgot how I don't like to stamp on textured cardstock because I can't seem to get a clean stamp. But I always stamp at the end of my project, maybe I should start stamping at the beginning of my project? LOL!
Here's a closeup of the butterfly. Absolutely my favorite Cricut cut on my Indie Art cartridge!
I inked around the edges with white ink and added some gems to the wings. I love this butterfly!!
Okay...that's what I have today! I would highly recommend checking out the JUGS challenges. They are great and the DT always have fantastic examples!! I hope you are having a fabulous week. Thanks for stopping by!!
