Happy Friday, this week seemed to zoom on by. The weather has been amazing it is hard to believe that school started again this week.

I have two challenges and a single card again today. The first Challenge is The Friday Mashup, today challenge details are:

This week at the Friday Mashup, Heidi is challenging us to:
1. Create a project with "Stitching or Faux Stitching".
2. Or Create a project for "Back To School or a Teacher Gift".
3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a "Back To School Project with Stitching"!

The second challenge is 365 Card Challenge-Day 191-So Not Me. The challenge details are:
Clean and Simple, Vintage, Shabby Chic, Bold Graphics, Cutesy....Whatever your style, now I want you to do anything but that style.

I rarely do stitching, real or faux, I also tend to stay away from brighter colors. Both of these are included in this card.. I also took it a step farther and made a smaller sized card 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 so I think I have covered the So Not Me.

I did keep it basic though and I like how it turned out. my stitching is not real.. of course. I have had a few crafting mishaps this week and my luck I would sew my fingers together if I tried. I printed off a clipart apple and covered it in Diamond Glaze.

Supplies: Cream and Brown cardstock, Designer Paper-DCWV, Hot of the Press-Tiny Words and Images, misc apple clipart.

  4. Nina, firstly let me say a huge thank you for taking the time to comment on the DT cards. It's so nice to see people taking time out to do that for DT cards. Much appreciated.

    Your card is very simple and so effective. Love the stitching down the middle of your apple paper. Great work on going way outside your normal choices.
