ROP *21* Stitches.......

Hello! This week at ROP the challenge is to use stitches!! Well that certainly is not my area of expertize but I had to give it a try! I just moved the sewing machine next to the computer in the basement after having it hidden away so this is a sign!! LOL
I went pretty girly with this one! There was a challenge somewhere at sometime that had this layout and another with these colors so that was sitting on my desk already! I just had to add the embellies and color in the image!! Don't look to closely as I had quite the time with the sewing machine!! LOL I kept lifting the foot so I could rotate the card and I always forgot to put it back down so it was jumping around everywhere!! haha But I was going with the shabby chic look so I think it fits!! (That is my story and I am sticking to it!!)
I went over all the edges with my Crackle distress paint and then sprayed it with some shimmerz. You can get a better look here:
I just adore this image from the first release at Belles and Whistles. Did you see the new ones?? They are adorable and I was so thrilled to see that I won a set at the blog hop!! I couldn't believe it!! I cannot wait to see them in person!!
I am also entering this for the Guest DT spot there as well!! They are such a nice group of ladies and I would love to be a part of that team!

Well I better get to bed! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week-end! We are going to try for a 20 mile bike ride this week-end!! We have to see how much energy hubby has!! I am not worried about the kids ~ it is the old man I worry about!! LOL No really he works alot and has different hours so he tends to wear himself down!
Have a good one......
