The very Crafty Caroline has picked the theme this week at Totally Papercrafts and she wants us to use stitching on our creations. ( real or faux ) My Mom gave me a sewing machine and we are working on getting everything "right" so this may be the last time I have to hand stitch a card!!! WooHoo! It sure would be nice to zip right around instead of slowly making my way. Lol
I just wasn't ready to put away my orange and black yet so I decided to use it one last time. I paired up some floral print DP and these adorable Pilgrims from Whimsy and Stars. Mabelle sure has some cuties for the Holidays. She is also having a BUY 2 GET ONE FREE sale until Dec. 10th. So, pop on over to her shop and take advantage of this sale while you can.

We have some new DT members to introduce to you today!!!

We hope you will take the time to visit their blogs and say hello to them.

We also have a Spotlight Guest Designer ...

and we would like you to say Hello to Lisa,

who will be filling the Spotlight position until the New Year.

Our Sponsor this week is:

" At Die cut Dreams we sell designer die cuts many are my own design and matting, layering die cut shapes for stamping.

You do have a perfect eye for color. How you are able to take dark papers, combine them and make a card look bright is real talent. I love it. That DP is fab too. Have a good weekend. Linda
