Sparkle Creations Challenge: Stitching

Hello, hello!

My babies are turning two and three this month and we are having a little family get together to celebrate their bdays this weekend. It's only going to be my family but I wanted to make some favors for my nieces and nephews. I have been trying so hard to get them done but I just don't have enough time to do everything! How I wish there are 48 hours in a day! LOL

Oh, I took my kiddies to JC Penny for their annual Christmas pictures this last weekend and boy was it difficult to get a good shot of them! They kept making funny faces!

Anyway, today is the start of another fun challenge at Sparkle Creations! Our theme this week is STITCHING, real or faux. I went with real. Gotta make good use of my machine! LOL But as you can see, I seriously need more practicing! I almost mess up this card!

For this card, I used Elf Oliver. I went with traditional colors this time because I haven't made too many cards with these colors. As a matter of fact, I don't have that many Christmas papers with these colors....funny, but true!

This week is our last challenge of the year. We will start back on January 4th. This will be a nice break since I really need it! I still have so much to do and so little time!

Well, that's all I have for you guys today. Be sure to check out my teammates' awesome creations at our blog! Better yet, visit their blog and give them some love!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
