Now let’s see what the team have made for us for this weeks challenge! 

Scatty Jan I dont do real sewing by any shape or form so my gift tag this week contains faux stitching. I used the lovely digi image by  Emma Canning , cute as a Button, coloured with Graph'It markers. I have used some lovely emblies from the Picknix Cd collection, the lush sentiment is also from there xx

Crafting Vicky Having just returned from camping when I made this card there was NO way that I was going to really do sewing on this card.  So I did faux :)  but it works right?!?  I did use a lot of other elements that would work with sewing including the fabulous digi Emma Canning - Sew Sew.  The papers that I used for this card are from Pretty things download Bundle and also from Girls hoot bundle.  I'm pretty happy with how this turned out... even if it was faux stitching :)

Wendy - As Vicky returns form camping, I am off! So I couldn't choose a better image than the girl swimmer from Work & Play 4. All the papers are from there too, as are the flag embellies. The image has been coloured using Graph'Its. I added faux stitching using a Serif Craft Artist and pen round the edge.

Julie -I decided to make a pendulum card using the wonderful Baby Boom Bundle from Digiworld at Polkadoodles.  I hate sewing so don't own a sewing machine or kit (it goes back to a horrible teacher I had at school who put me off sewing for life) so I cheated a little and actually faux stitched both of the papers in Photoshop Elements
All the items on this card are from the Baby Boom kit, which is amazing and a bargain at only £2.99!

Sharon - I have used faux stitching on my card. I have made patchwork with 2 papers from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD but cutting them in to equal size squares and matting them on some green card and a 3rd paper from the disc. I have then "stitched" around the squares with a fine black pen. Maisie is also from the CD and I have colored her with Spectrum Noirs and fussy cut her before using foam tape to fix her to the card. As she has a pair of scissors in her pocket and ribbon on her ear I have then added some appropriate embellishments from the Picknix Cd collection and some pink dotty buttons from my stash.

Yvonne - Hello there! Well I spied the new image in the Digiworld - Downloadables of 'Alyce Sewing' - and since the theme for this week is 'Stitching' - well it would have been rude not to use her, wouldn't it!? I also used two papers from the 'Tatty Easter' digi bundle which is FREE.......no excuse not to have this, you even get the Tatty Easter Image & embellies for FREE too.  I coloured Alyce with Graph'It Markers - lushness abounds. I used a Tattered Lace die to cut her out and added some distress ink round the edges.  Some flowers, pearls, lil bit of ribbon, job done! There is some 'faux stitching' around the gingham backing paper.

Patty - I have used faux stitching on my card. I used papers from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD and Lady Caravan from the Work & Play 6, the colored digi....the Celebrate sentiment is from Stamp Doodles Set, I distress all the edges for the old feeling, i die cut her and distress the edge . I love the outcome of this card and I will used it for a friends who's Birthday is coming up!

Anjie - I'm sure you all know I'm a fan of faux stitching as I often do it on my projects, so this time I thought I would add some real stitching as well.I have used the Owl Always Love you download for all the elements on the card other than the sentiment. I have used a distressing tool around the edges of the card, paper and topper. I then got my mini sewing machine out to add the real stitching around the edges of the paper. As you can see it didn't want to play and sew so I ended up having to wind the machine by hand which has given a wonky line of stitching, but this kinda adds to the distressed look of the card. I then added the faux stitching around the topper with a white pen.

Fantastic ides here for you from the team, as always!! 
You have until 26th August to enter and the winner will be announced on 2nd September, so lots of time to get your entry in. All we ask is that you follow the theme and the simple rules that can be found in the side bar.
