So let’s see what the design team have made for us.

Jane – Hello! I love to use faux stitching, it can really to finish off a project and I have used it around the frame of my angel hanger.  It features the beautiful and serene ANGELBERRY PEACE that I have coloured with pencils.  I made this as an alternative to a Christmas card for my mum this year in her favourite colours.  I’m glad to say she loved it.  Have a happy crafty day! xxx
Fiona - For my dt make this week again I have used the fantastic collection work and play series 9 Love and Kisses.  I cut the papers up to make a patchwork design and then added the faux stitching. Added a circle and faux stitched it. The tags can be found on the cd
 I then added some roses to the card. and the hat pins and other embellishments The image is  coloured with pencils.
Anjie - I have used an image, a sentiment and papers all from the beautiful Serentity download collection. I have added faux stitching around the papers and the image for the challenge. I coloured the beautiful image with my Graph'It Markers. I made some rolled roses from the papers and added some die cuts to finish off the card. More photos and details on my blog.
Julie -- My good friend and her husband spent well over a year remodeling the main floor of their house.  It is virtually complete.  I made this card in her honor.  I used this image from the Work & Play 11 collection (CD) & (Digital Download). The female painter/decorator image is available here.  Papers are from the same collection.  Since this week's theme is stitching -- faux or real, I faux stitched around the image, and chose a slightly different pattern to faux stitch around the sentiment.  I kept the rest of the card CAS to draw attention the the image, Copic coloring and faux stitching.
Monica-Since I was a little kid, I love cloth dolls. So this week theme was perfect for my favorites dolls. I found an adorable cloth doll digi, full of stitches, in Picknix 1.-All sewn up. I love this collection, it´s  papers are stunning, sentiments are beautiful and the elements are just perfect for this challenge.
Lynda: Inspired by my brothers obsession with football I chose to use Work &Play 6 for this weeks challenge. The papers, digi stamp and sentiments are all included in this bundle. It's available as a digital download or on a CD. Have fun xx 

Helen - faux stitching is one of those things that I keep meaning to add to my cards but always seems to forget about!  I've gone for a patchwork card layout with faux stitching round the edge of each of the blocks.  The digi, paper and sentiment I've used are all from the 'Serenity Fairy Wishes' download collection available here.
Gail - I love stitching on projects, I'm not very good at sewing so mine is faux stitching. Although not real patchwork I did create a patchwork effect background for my card. I used papers and images from the fabulous Eden Collection, available on CD-Rom here or as a Digital Download here.
Aunty Sue - Hi for my card I have used faux stitching and real stitching on the ribbon. My card feature The Skateboarder and paper from Work & Play 11 which is available HERE. I kept it very simple with just 1 one paper with stitching round the edge and the sentiment Busting Tricks I printed onto of the paper and then faux stitched the wording. The ribbon is stitched. Fussy cut my image and placed on foam pads.

Tanya I have chosen to do some proper stitching by hand with threads and beads for my make this week and have used the alphabets available as a single download or on the wonderful Colour Therapy Collections called Florabunda and Inspiring Foliage and have made a framed picture for my mum and dad's wedding anniversary. More pictures can be seen on my blog.  

Audrey chose to use another gorgeous image from Work and Play Volume 10 Full Download Collection, this time working with Foxy Friend Digital Stamp.  I have also included a tutorial on brick coloring with Copics for you.  I hope you find it helpful and inspiring.  I used a stitched die to cut out the image and all my papers from Winston Deluxe Full Collection download have stitching on them.  My sentiment choice, cut out with scissors, also from Winston Deluxe Full Collection download, includes stitching as well.  I chose flowers from Winston Deluxe Full Collection download and cut those with scissors after outlining with Copics.
