RCC65 One stitch at a time.

 Happy Tuesday today we have a fun challenge over at the Ribbon Carousel Blog. I am hosting this weeks challenge to use some kind of stitching on your card it can be with the good old sewing machine or you can use faux stitching.
For my card I used the faux stitching while I like the real thing sometimes the faux it the easiest. I use my mat stack for the piercing along the edges then I used a fine tip marker to make the stitch lines.  The sentiment is from there she goes stamp and the pattern paper is from Echo park for the ribbon I use used the v-striped twill.

Make sure to check out the Ribbon carousel blog on how to  play along with this weeks challenge.

Lot's of exciting things going on this week and sadly I am away to miss all the fun but I still could not leave without sharing some fun projects!!!
This is a fun filled week with amazing new stamps and new DT members so excited for these girls they have got some amazing talent!!!

Today at Sweet Stamp Shop we are showcasing a new set called Lil Sweet Peps this is such a fun set and it really is perfect for all kinds of projects to showcase that is why I decided to do something a little different.

  I decided to make a fun little photo book with envelopes!!
I wanted my envelope to be in different patterns so I made them with my cameo machine and cut of the flaps of the envelopes.
Here is a view of the envelope pockets I made these with some studio calico pattern paper.
This could be used for so many things the possibilities are endless.

Have fun hopping along with us!!!
