Challenge 8 - Stitching/Faux Stitching

Hi everyone - Max here.
Can you believe we're into the month of March already?
No ... neither can we.
As this is the first challenge of a brand new month, there is a prize to be awarded to one lucky random entry and this time it is a cute set of Hero Arts Clear Christmas Stamps.
I know that Spring is just hovering around the corner but we 'Humbuggers' know it'll soon be Christmas, so no time to rest on your laurels.
Just remember that come December, when everyone else is doing a good impersonation of a headless chicken, you'll be curled up in front of the fire knowing that all those wonderful cards you have been busy making over the year have been written and are waiting to be posted. Yes - you are allowed to feel smug!
Now to continue the good work on our 2010 card collections, the challenge we've set for this week is
This can be the real deal, with a real live needle and thread ... (too scary for me!) ... or you can pretend with the use of printed papers, a fineliner pen, stamps, peel offs or whatever you'd like to use.
The deadline for entries is
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 11th March 2010
If you'd like to know how we made our examples, simply click on the names below and all will be revealed.

As always ... have fun and leave us a direct link so we can come and admire your creativity.
Good luck to you all in the draw.
Love Max, Irene and Ann
