Express yourself, hey, hey, hey, hey

Hello my fellow Gleeks!
Are you feeling empowered this morning? LOL

Can I just say that my face was a bit tired after grinning all the way through last night's episode... I found it absolutely delightful... "When I pulled a hamstring I went to the misogynist." chuckle, chuckle!
I may have even sung along with a song or two, much to the moaning and groaning of my fellow Gleeks in the room. What can I say? I was not blessed in the vocals department... I've got the will but not the way. Maybe that's why I love this show so much, I can live vicariously through the musicality of New Beginnings. :)

Ok, that's all I'm going to say about Glee, now it's time to tell you about the new challenge over at ATS today and this time we want to see some sewing on your cards. It can be machine stitched, hand sewn or even faux stitching created by pen, rub-ons or stamps... the possibilities are nearly endless!
For my card I decided it was high time to dust off the ol' sewing machine and put it to work. I love the look that stitching adds and really should be doing it more often but to be perfectly honest I'm just a bit lazy when I usually think about doing some sewing... especially when I can just cheat and quickly rub some faux stitching on, LOL! But not today! Today it's the real deal and I even broke out the hot pink thread to match Clover's skirt. ;)
Ok, now it's your turn to play along and remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Amy. She is sooooo cute. I just love how you sewed on your card. I have 2 machines and I never use them on my cards or sb pages...Madie is doing better and we are hoping to get her to school tomorrow. Thanks for all of your concern. We laughed so much during Glee. Jerry says he could watch it every day of the week. lol...Hugs, Lisa

Love the multiple lines of stitching for bordering the circle and straight piece...and then you fit the sentiment in there just perfectly...sorry for studying your card but I can't help it! ♥ grin♥

I used to sew (clothes & make bags) all the time. Who knows if my machine is still working, let alone if I can stitch straight! lol.. I love the dimensional design on Clover's skirt. And the vibrant pinks and oranges you used. Great card!
