LRW #131--Stitching

Thank you Joanne for giving us a challenge I LOVE this week over at Little Red Wagon

Stitching  -- by hand or machine

I think I machine stitch on all my cards and layouts lately, so even though this may not have been a "challenge" for me in the true sense of the word, I still loved it because it allowed me to play with one of my favourite techniques.

I made this baby card for one of my dear girlfriends who just had her first baby.
 I love the texture of the embossing folder and the onesie, and the zig-zag stitching around the panel just gives it a Quilt sorta-feel.

I also thought I'd share this one that I made for another dear girlfriend who now lives out in B.C.  I tucked this card in to the baby gift I sent out for her new baby boy.
 My son hates clothing tags on his shirts, so I re-purposed this one that says "made with TLC" and stitched it onto the tag on my card.

Hope you have some time to play with us LRW gals this week!  
We'd love to see what you "stitch" up!!

Thanks 4 your time!


  1. What fabulous cards! The first one is so sweet. I love the colour. And the second one just wonderful. What a creative way to upcycle!

  2. what a great idea!! Love that repurposed little tag! So cool! The embossing and stitching on the first make this one sweet baby card :)

  3. Love the stitching with the embossing. Perfect and so cute!
