Stitching & Digital Doodle

Hi peeps. This is my second post for the day. If you come to my blog looking for the Digi Doodle Shop blog hop, please scroll down.

I was so excited yesterday. I finally managed to do actual stitching on my card. Granted, it's not the straightest stitch, but for my first time I think it looks pretty darn good. And... no poking my finger either. That needle make me nervous, LOL. The whole time I did the stitching, I didn't dare to blink at all. Afraid the line would be totally messed up or my finger get sewn.

And when I was done, I was squealing with delight that my husband was asking what was that? LOL. I was so proud of myself as trust me, as I am sooo not a sewing person. I loved the result of sewing as I do love pretty dress and all, but not good at sewing. Growing up, I want to be a fashion designer, but bailed out when my mom said to be a good fashion designer I need to know how to sew.

So, without further do, below is my card with my stitch (actually this is the 2nd card I stitched, the 1st one will be shown tomorrow for Mami Doodle's post). For this card I used Card Patterns sketch 65.

The cute lovely "Tweet Retreat" image is from Kathy Martin's Digital Doodle (available at Two Peas In A Bucket). I fell in love with it the moment I saw it at Kathy's blog. Kathy's not only talented, but she's also super sweet. She always take the time to leave some thoughtful comments and I appreciated her for that.

That cool label is from Kristina Werner's design. I decided to combine Kathy & Kristina's image together and that's the end result. I really like how they look. What do you think? OK, that's it for now. I'll have new card tomorrow for Mami Doodles and on Saturday please join me for Operation Write Home Blog Hop. Ciao peeps, Vera. :)

You did a fabulous job stitching! Watch out, it's addicting! Sometimes I think my project looks naked without it! Love how you colored the
'Tweet Retreat' stamp! May I post your creation on my blog? :)

Kathy, absolutely yes you can post my card on your blog. Twist my arm. :) Thank you in advance.

Vera your card and stitching are beautiful! I like to hand stitch because it seems I tear up every sewing machine I use, lol! Who knew sewing paper could be fun : )

You did a great job with your stitching. I haven't been doing the real thing for long myself. But it really does add to the card's design.
