Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - You've Got Me in Stitches

Happy Friday everyone! Well it seems Blogger was misbehaving and wouldn't let me get this post up until now (after work and dinner)!

We have a new sponsor this week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long: Sew Many Cards and Digital Stamps has some fabulous images! I love the image I chose called Halen in Mitten.Cute, huh? The challenge at CSAYL this week is "You've Got Me in Stitches", so faux stitching on the card is what I did. I always seem to have trouble with my cheap-o sewing machine lately. My needle is constantly coming unthreaded and I find it terribly difficult to thread it again, so I shy away from the real thing! On this card, I used my ruler and white gel pen for this challenge. The paper is a retired one from SU called Christmas Cocoa. I love this paper and sad that I only have a little left! The cardstock is soft suede...another one I love. The ribbon is something from my collection, and the buttons were created using the dp and PTI's button die. The sentiment is from The Gingersnaps from My Time Made Easy. I used a Creative Memories heart punch.

The image was colored with copics, cut out, and popped up on the circle. The sketch is from May's Sketch for You to Try.

So how are you doing on your Christmas cards? Gotten started yet? This is my 11th card for my stash, and I have a big smile on my face! If you start playing with us at CSAYL every week, you'll have a get head start on getting those cards done! You even have the chance to win 5 digis from Sew Many Cards!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at the CSAYL blog!
