JUGs Challenge #15- Keeping you in Stitches

Hello all and HAPPY SATURDAY! How is your weekend so far? Mine is great...I'm so looking forward to Monday when the kids go back to school! YAY! I may just throw a party...LOL! They have been making me rip my hair out...they're worst than a day at the ZOO!!! If Ozzy isn't fighting with LV...it's Lizzie fighting with Ozzy or/AND LV. Too much "MOOOOOM" for me! LOL! But I will miss them...BUT I will have my quiet days when they're gone.

Now on to today's JUGs challenge! Today's challenge hosted by Mona is to make any project using the stitching technique! If you already know me...you know how much I love to sew on my cards...so this was my kind of challenge...lol! You can do all kinds of stitching though...you do not need a sewing machine. You can hand stitch, faux stitch, or machine stitch! When you're done with your project...make sure to upload to your blog or online gallery and link up to the JUGs Mr. Linky so we can stop by and be wowed by your work!

For this card I used a cute Skelekinz from Bugaboo Stamps (digi). These are so LV and me! LV picked this image for me to work with. It has her little "emo" stint to it...lol...and it kinda looks like her with just showing one eye with her hair in her face. As much as I hate her hair like that...it covers her pretty face up...she looks beautiful! Check her out! She did her OWN makeup this time. I just helped a bit with the mascara...and letting her know that the best makeup is to make it look as if you're not wearing ANY.

Alright...that's it for today! Have yourselves a GREAT weekend!

Hi Gabby, Great card. I just love it. Yes, your daughter is abosolutely gorgious...I keep telling mine to get her hair out of her face also...I don't know what that is, but I can not stand it. Such pretty girls and all you can see is half of their faces..lol...Have a great day. So glad you are back, Lisa G

ACK! This is freakin great!!! Great image - I love how you've colored it and the papers you picked, too! Your daughter is beautiful! I hope my daughter and I can stay as close as she gets older as you two seem to be! (I bought her this cute little "punk" shirt this weekend, I am trying to mold her tastes to mine hee,hee! That's probably a sure way to make her not like my things, huh!? Oh, well...) :-)Traci

GIRL!!! I am slacking on the team comments more so than the participants, I'm soooo sorry for the immense delay. Your card is WONDERFUL and I love the image that reminds you of your beautiful daughter ;] Too cute. Your sewing is incredible, girly!! You could teach me a few things...that I'm certain of.

I'm sooo happy you are our first guest designer! You are setting the bar very HIGH! ♥ your work, my friend :]
