Stitch it up with Karen's Doodles



Welcome to another fun challenge from Karen's Doodles. We are asking you to use one of my favorite techniques - stitching. Feel free to hand, machine or faux stitch anywhere on your project. Just be sure to use one of Karen's images, so you can be in the running for some free digis!

For those of you that don't know, my husband is a high school choir teacher. On Wednesday night, he came in my studio and said, "Honey, could you make some graduation cards for me to give to my Seniors tomorrow night at our spring concert?" Luckily, he only had two Seniors singing in the concert, and I got them done. I used You've Come a Long Way Baby Girl. The cards are pretty much the same, although I tried to personalize the hair/eye colors for the girls - and tried different fancy stitches. If you need to make any graduation cards this year, there is also a boy version of this image available.

Challenges:
Posh - Sketch
Crafty Creations - Celebration
Creative Inspirations - Card for a Child
Charisma Cards - 3-D

Gini, I love your graduation cards. How nice of your husband to give you such advanced notice, lol. Love the rich colors and the fancy stitches look great! May have to dig my sewing machine out you have given me such inspiration.
