Long time no post folks!
 Being that it's summer, I have been spending as much time outside as possible lately, because we have snow 7 months of the year here, and I need to enjoy this warm, sunny weather while I can!

This card is for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week, to use stitching on your project! Well I love my sewing machine and you all know that I often stitch on my cards, but I actually did some hand stitching on this one! See the red floss along the top and bottom of the white sentiment panel...yep, I took the time to do it by hand! *proud smile*

Keeping it simple with some digital images from Dee Dee's Digis, Copic markers, PP and CS from PTI.
The digital stamps I used are called Bookworm, and I received 2 images and 3 sentiments all together in the set! I only used the wormy apple here, but the worm and book image are just as adorable!

Thanks for stopping by today! If you feel like stitching and you get a chance to play along with us at Tuesday Throwdown, I'd love to see what you create!
Have a good one,

what a cute cute card!! My kids are reading up a storm this summer, we hit the library at least once a week. I love the color combo!

Jill said...

Aw, anything reading-themed is close to my heart, Dana! What a wonderful, cute card! Is the red stitching what they call "blanket" stitching? (I'm sewing challenged, lol!) Anyway, it looks like the stitching on a blanket, and kinda makes the white strip look like a ruler, too!
