Penny Black Saturday #157 ~ Stitch it Up....

Morning!! Before I share my card for this week's challenge......I have some prizes to give-away!!!
I was one of the lucky 5 DT girls hiding the prizes for the PBSC Birthday Blog Hop :)
Thank-you for all your lovely comments xx
So these fabulous Penny Black stamps will be winging their way to...........(drumroll!!)



Kathleen A ~ No.42.....Huge Congrats Kathleen!!
Please email {KATH} with your details , you'll find the info over on the PBSC blog :)

Now for today's challenge!!
'Stitch it Up'...
We would love to see stitching on your cards......real or faux or maybe even a sewing related PB image or embellishments!

I had a few problems with my stitching!! and resorted to using my sewing machine with no thread in (dont ask!!) and then using the holes to handstitch the thread through!!
I do like the finished effect although it's a bit wonky!!.....worth the time I think??

I have coloured the fabulous hedgie with promarkers and prismas and the papers are K & Co. I also used my Martha Stewart zig-zag punch to represent the zig zag stitch.

We have a *new* sponsor this week :) with a wonderful prize....

Looking forward to seeing all your 'Stitched' creations :)

I'll leave you with another photo of my card for this week's challenge -


Thanks for looking xx
