Stitching Love & Arrows.

IMG_8709

Hello, peeps!

Are you all having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend so far? I'm working today, but was off yesterday, and we had a big party for my mom's birthday. And then, I'm off for a couple days again after today and am still kinda planning on what to do for the actual Holiday. How about you?

For today, I've got a card for Christmas Card Challenges # 26. This week, you are to do some stitching on your project. Don't worry... if you are sewing-machine-illiterate like moi, you can also just draw your stitches. I had fun with my card and used Amy Tangerine's sewing template for the squiggly arrow and word "love." It is so easy to use!

I'm so glad that I actually stitched on my card. I really love that look and always get bummed that I can't do it on my cards or scrapbook lay-outs. But the template makes it possible and fun!

Remember that CCC's weekly challenges are optional. The only real rule is to make a Holiday or winter-themed card. Hope you can join us!

And, sadly, this is the end of my term at CCC. I've been on the DT since the end of 2011, and I've decided that it's time to move on. I really enjoyed making Christmas cards throughout the year. It has been tough, but so well worth it at the end. I've also liked the flexibility of virtually using any product you want and just conforming them to the week's challenge at hand. Thank you so much, Sparkle, Stephanie, and Alanna for giving me the chance and being such great coordinators! And also to all of you who have visited my blog and joined in on the challenges. I will miss posting Holiday cards every Sunday. :(

Enjoy your weekend,

I'll miss seeing your weekly cards for the Christmas Card Challenge - they have been fantastic! This one is gorgeous and has given me plenty of ideas for stitching with some of my larger sentiment stamps. You rocked this one, Rinne!
