Cupcake craft challenge #154–DT card

**THIS IS MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY **

Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello, I’m back again as promised with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  The lovely Jane has set the theme this week and she has chosen “sew mad”, so we would like to see your stitching (either faux or real) – easy peasy right!  I decided to actually try stitching on this card for a change as I always normally do faux stitching with a fine liner, but I didn’t go too mad only a few hand stitched ones!  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 154 - sew mad

I have used an image kindly donated by our sponsor Paper Pretties called ‘tea-time’ and the matching sentiment comes with it too.  I coloured him with my promarkers and I luckily found the cute little chipboard tea-cup in my stash, which was a magazine freebie.  Can you see my little hand stitched cross stitches?  They are either side of the smaller panel lol!  I think they look really cute!!  

As I mentioned our sponsor this week is Paper Pretties and they are offering the winner a gorgeous “give thanks Sophia” stamp.

Don’t forget we have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ monthly sponsor too and for August we have 3 as it is our birthday month.  Firstly we have Crafts U Love who are offering a £15.00 voucher to spend in their online store, secondly we have Mo’s Digital Pencil who are offering a $10.00 gift code to use in their online store and thirdly we have Sew Sweet who are offering a £10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.  So definitely lots of yummy reasons to play along this month.
