Happy Friday Everyone!!  Sorry for my lack of posts this week.  Life has been crazy!

Any who  I am back with a post for the Wags n Whiskers challenge for this week. The challenge today is hosted by the sweet and uber talented Melanie. Melanie's challenge is called:

In Stitches

Melanie is asking for you to use either real or fake stitches somewhere on your card or paper project.

Here is my take on the challenge:

I used the  Sweet Danni and Bella image illustrated by Crissy Armstrong for Wags n Whiskers.  This image is sold as both a digi and a rubber stamp. The layout uses the Midnight Madness Sketch for this week.  This card is very shimmery with the glittery paper in probably see it better if you click on the photo.

I purposely used a Christmas image to make a Christmas card to enter in the Sunday's with Crissy challenge this week.

Hi Chris!
I was looking at you card thinking "love the colors and the textures, and how clever to use snowflaks as flowers" And then I realised it was a christmascard.... I am just so not in the christmastmood - I don't even see it when it is right in front of me!

But it is a very beautiful christmascard and I still love the colors and the textures ;o)

Thanks for playing Chris. I love to come and see your beautiful work!
