I was working on this earlier today for the Design Dollies sketch challenge. I tell ya, they have a challenge every time I turn around.....I can't keep up!!! LOL....but I am pretty proud that I have completed 3 of them for this month with them......I LOVEEE them! I just need to scrap faster.....lol
So here is the sketch....very simple one but still cute
Here is my take and guess what I did......I stitched the circles AGAIN!!! Such a glutton for punishment I am!! BUT.......this time I learned a trick that enabled me to do this a wholeeeeee lot faster! I read on a forum somewhere or other.....honestly I can't remember where for the life of me or I would definately share....cut me some slack, I have slept since then.....lol. But they said to pierce your paper first then stitch in the holes. (Smacks forehead) Yeah I felt stupid......lol. But I tried it and it went by sooooo fast!!! I was a little worried cuz I used yarn rather than floss....I wasn't sure my cheap kraft cardstock could hande it but it worked out ok!! A pretty simple LO...nothing fancy or special....no bells and whistles.....it won't do windows...just a simple clean LO.
This is Mr Stubborn himself......Bob :) And when he reads this he will be thrilled I said MR......what a turd.....lol. When I showed him the page earlier he said....Awwwwww I must be prince charming!!! I told him to get over himself....more like a royal pain in the @$$!! I just wish I had a little crown to put on his head.........yeah we love each other!!! Really!!!
Here are some close ups of the stitching and the CUTE frogs.....check out the top one....it has a little spring attached and bobbles all over the place.....lol. I've had them for a couple of years and am finally using them.....and I must say they are way cuter on the LO then in the package....so keep that in mind next time ya'll hoard something and are afraid to use it.....it can't bring you enjoyment laying around in your scrap stash.
BOINGGGGGGGG!!!! LOL...too cute! I couldn't find my googly eyes to add to this but when I do you can bet I will.......I just think doing that is cute....yeah I'm weird :)
And the stitching....
Now that I know an easier way I will be doing a lot more of this. The whole page is actually just scraps, buttons from my stash and the little froggies are from Paper Bliss, stickabilities and thickers for the alphas, paper studio for the card stock.
Despite Bob's little health scare tonight this has been a phenominal day! I also found out that I won a book on handmade flowers from one of the many giveaways I stalked over the weekend AND I was asked to join ANOTHER DT!!!! No joke!! I don't want to say anything just yet....I will let them announce first but I am sooooooo honored to have been asked to be a part of this group. I only recently discovered them and have tried to hit their challenges because they are truly one of the most awesome places I have played. I feel the way the DT treats you when you play in a challenge really reflects on the site or owner and they have been sooo nice and sooo encouraging. I hope I can be that kind of DT member and people will feel that same way about me. I sooooo love my homes at Project B & Scrap it With A Song and I am very excited to get started at TPE and my newest gig......hopefully I can brag out loud about it tomorrow!!!
And hopefully my fella will be back home where he belongs tomorrow as well!!!!
I'm beat so it's off to bed for me!
Hugs n stuff to ya'll!
