My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 120 - Stitch Time

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hello blogging friends! It has been awhile since a post from me. My card is late, but I found a little time to participate in  My Sheri Crafts Challenge 120 - Stitch Time. Sue asked us to make a card or project that includes a sewing theme or stitching on the project.
My card measures 5" x 6 1/2" cut from DCWV paper. Other papers include Colorbok Kraft and K&Company papers.
Do you ever purchase a crafting item and then never get around to using it? Well, I do! I decided it was time for me to try out the Sew Easy stitch piercer tools that I bought some time ago from Michael's. I used the scallop piercer on the edge of the brown paper and the stitching is done with the Baker's twine blue lagoon. Luckily I found papers and colors that would work with the color of the twine. The paper actually has a stitched look. So the stitching was the beginning of my card! Maybe not perfect stitching, but ok for my first try!
Cricut Cartridges:
Thanksgiving - Pumpkin is cut at 1.75".
Freshly Picked - Page 49 - Farm Fresh sign is cut at 2.75".
Polka Dots folder is used on the white mat. Divine Swirls is used on the pumpkin.
A little twine bow and a piece of burlap complete my card. I like the blues and greens with my pumpkin for a Fall look!

Be sure to visit My Sheri Crafts and see the pretty and inspiring projects by the design team and our guest designer. For more information on the projects, visit the individual blogs!
Now it is your turn to play along with us! You must include a sewing theme or sewing on your project. Several Ooh La La awards will be given and one person will be chosen to be our next guest designer. Please note there is a limit of 3 entries per person per challenge.

The Shabby Tea Room - Ch. 186 'Oh My Pumpkin'.. project inspired by the photo, include burlap and/or twine and a pumpkin(s). 

Just an update---My husband is taking chemo treatments and we travel a lot back and forth to the hospital. I try to craft and blog as I can, but it has not been much lately. Thank you for your continued support of my blog and also for your prayers!
