A stitch in nine...

Hiya sweeties!

It's Lil Lolita challenge time again and this week we want you to add some stitching to your card. Now normally I would go the quick route and just add some rub-on stitches (which is perfectly ok for the challenge) but because of all the Project Runway that I have been watching recently I was inspired to actually pull out my Singer and put it to use. Believe me, I can't sew a garment together to save my life but I can 'make it work' on paper, LOL! ;)
I also went back to the 'big head' look and this time it's all about original Evie. I just think that she has the sweetest face and even though I have used her for a Halloween card you can tell she is too nice to trick she only wants the treats... hopefully she can hang onto them with those big kitty mittens she's wearing! :)

Alrighty, now it is your turn to show us some fab stitching... whether it be hand stitched, machine stitched or faux stitched, that is entirely up to you. But in order to be eligible to win the fab prize from the Tickled Pink store you must use a Lil Lolita stamp or digi on your card. And most importantly, have fun!

Now in the words of Tim Gunn, "Carry on." heeheehee

Ooh! I love your card - she is so adorable and I love how you have complimented her with those papers and embellies! And i am so pleased you are sharing my Project Runway (and TIm Gunn) love! A while back I accidentally "liked" Tim Gunn's Facebook page while somehow signed in to Sweet November's (don't ask me how) and made Sweet November a fan of Tim Gunn! I had to get Rachel to fix it for me! :-)Traci
