I'm gonna apologize right up front for this card. I had great intentions this week because the Bah! Humbug! challenge was stitching real or faux and I was going to attempt, for the first time EVER, to stitch on a card using my sewing machine. And then the weather turned lovely. And then I walked this morning. And then DH suggested going out to lunch and after 2 glasses of wine it lead to an (ahem) nap. Oh crap! The challenge. Needless to say, I almost blew it off BUT as the good Loyalty Member that I am, I persevered, looking for an image that lent itself to stitching in some way shape or form (and was so tiny that it didn't take much to color. LOL) Yea, Fluffie! However it did take 2 attempts, because the darn thing was too small to get any nuance with Copics so I brought out the Prismas (not that it helped much, but a little.) So what about the stitiching? I was WAY too impared to fire up the machine so I pierced and intended to use my gel pen for faux. But it looked BAD! Out came the needle and floss and I stitched by hand... quite shakily I'm afraid. Thank heaven I cut the mat with my new deckle oval Nestie so it sort of looked like it was planned. (Well, maybe.) Anyway, that's the card, devoid of further embellishemnt because it's probably going in the bin. A total embarrassment, but I'm sure Max, Ann, and Irene will at least appreciate the effort.
