Papertake Weekly GDT Card...

It's that time of the week again for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly. There is a $25 voucher up for grabs from Simon Says Stamp this week.

Here is my 3rd card for my month long GDT spot. This week the theme is 'In Stitches'.
My card has real stitches, faux stitches, and stitched buttons too!

But what a drama I had doing the real stitches. I used my 'Sew Crafty Mini' which is a tiny little sewing machine that I got free some time ago, with a magazine subscription. It has one speed...FAST....and one stitch...WONKY!! (or maybe that's just me lol!) Well anyway, the batteries decided to run out half way around, and my paper was stuck! I was searching around for more batteries and ended up nabbing them from the remote control! Then I had to change them over with paper still stuck lol! So yes I know it's a wonky job but I was past caring by the time I'd finished. Never mind...

The cutie hedgehog is Birthday Spike from the DigiStamp Boutique.

I have coloured him with Promarkers, and Memento Inks for the background.

The papers are Dovecraft Piece Of Cake.

I have also used;

Papermania pink scalloped card blank, Nestabilities Labels 1, flowers, cord & buttons.

I will put this into the 'Let's Go Digital' challenge over at Crafty Catz.

Well I am really tired now, so off to bed soon. Thanks so much for popping by!
