Digital Stamps 4 Joy Stitching Challenge

Welcome friends.  Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit me.  I truly appreciate it.

The card I have for y'all in this post is a bit of a twist.  The challenge over at DS4J is stitching.  Since I don't have a sewing machine and I don't have the patience for hand stitching, I used faux stitching.  The image I chose is not a Christmas image, but I turned this Misteri image into one.

I noticed the bells attached to her skirt and immediately thought of the song, "Jingle Bells".  So, I colored her with reds, greens and gold.  I pulled two patterned papers from The Paper Studio Holly Jolly 6x6 pad.  The wreath stamp is an old, old set that I bought when I first started stamping in 2010. I had to write the sentiment because I didn't have a stamp that said anything about bells or jingling.  I used two different BIC Markers for the faux stitching around the image and the sentiment.

I hope y'all enjoyed your visit today.  Thanks again for stopping by.  God bless and have a great day.

I am also entering this card into the Fab and Funky Anything Goes challenge.

  4. This is such a wonderful Christmas card. Who says you have to use a Christmas image when you can "make a non Christmas image" into one? And you did a beautiful job of faux stitching around the image. Thanks for playing in our challenge at Digistamps4Joy! Good luck and we hope to see you again.
