You can do anything

Hey y'all!
Happy Sunday!! Today we have a brand new challenge at CAS on Sunday!

This time we're all about the 'stitching'...real stitching.

So here's my card.

Okay, confession time! I do not know how to sew (well, maybe a teeny tiny bit?...) and I do not have a sewing machine! So, for this card I used my daughter's ' little kid sewing machine'. lol For the most part it worked...somewhat. lol You probably can see that it isn't the best stitching but after many attempts, I thought this was the best I'm gonna get it. Though, I actually did like the look of a messy stitch too!?!...

Be sure to swing on over to CAS on Sunday and see all the DT creations! And while you're there I hope you'll join us?!! :) 

Thanks for stopping by! 
Enjoy your day! 


  1. Your chewing is great! Just like your card ;o)

  2. You shouldn't have said anything, I thunk the sewing is awesome. Actually I am super impressed that you accomplished that with a child's sewing machine. ;)

  3. Love the black and white and the pop of colour. I can't sew straight so I always make it more messy and call it "style". lol

  4. Great card Shelly! Stitching....hmmmmm....I'm too lazy to haul my machine out, lol! This card of yours however, has such a happy feel to it. Those stripes and the bright pink are wonderful. Love your little stitches too. Fun card. Bev

  5. This is SO awesome Shelly!! I love the stitching! :)

  6. Love it, messy stitching and all!!

  7. Messy stitching is so in right now! Love this, that bold chevron base looks fantastic with the die!

  8. Your sewing looks pretty amazing to me, Shelly! I don't sew and don't have a machine, so no way to enter this challenge! The black and of my favourite combinations!

  9. The stitching u did is so creative :) love how simple yet striking your card is!!
