Hanging On A Thread!

It's time for another challenge at Scrapbook Sisters, I can't believe how the weeks fly by. 


The theme for this week is Mother's Day, and as the day is just around the corner it's about time we all started getting prepared. I used some recent magazine giveaway stamps and teamed them up with This & That Papers by Echo Park,using some of the scraps to paper piece the clothes. I used twill over the  the stamped thread and glossy accents to the needles.



 Isn't the "stitched with love" sentiment adorable, MUM was cut on the Cricut and I added Stickles, stitching and tiny twill knots.


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Paper And Such, Paper piecing,
Top Tip Tuesday 71, Stitches,
Lexis 60, Mothers day,
Stamp and Create November, Paper piecing,
Stamps & Fun 89, One bow,
TPE138, Lots of layers,
TCCB144, Paper piece,
CI Paints, Family.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
