Cuddly Buddly challenge 6- Faux or real stitching.

Morning peeps!!!!

Urgh, we have woken up to rain and grey skies this morning :( but to cheer myself up I have been busy creating a little card to enter in the Cuddly Buddly's lets keep creating challenge blogs Real or Faux stitching challenge.

I love stitching, it is one of the things I find really relaxes me. I used to cross stitch all the time before I was bitten by the paper crafting bug so a bit of running stitch seemed to be in order for my card.

My martha stewart cherish edger is always a fabulous one for stitching. It looks beautiful without the stitching too so its an all round winner of a punch really!!!

My little girly image is from my big sisters new wintery ones and I totally adore her. She is called Cold Days and is a complete bargain at 99p!!! I sized her up so I could fit 6 of her on one A4 size piece of digi smooth cardstock. I haven't finished colouring them all up yet but here's a little close up of her!!! she is just so sweet with her windswept hair and bobbly hat. And of course she needed fluffy wuffy snow to stand in....

The papers are all from my old stash of papermania ones.This little 6x6 pad is slowly fading to nothing now but I love it!! I will be so sad when it is all gone!! I punched out one of the little circles from the merry christmas sheet and embossed it to get my little sentiment button. I love it! 

So, thats me for this morning!!! Don't forget to pop on over to the Cuddly Buddly blog as there is still time to enter this weeks challenge using a Cuddly Buddly digi. I am determined to enter earlier next week!! it always seems to be wednesday before I get myself organised!!

Have a fabulous day!!
