Aloha Friday Challenge #48 - Sew cute

Happy Aloha Friday everyone!

Today starts a brand new challenge over at the Aloha Friday Challenge blog.  Thank you all so much for joining in our last challenge.  Hope you'll link up again as this one is a pretty easy one too.  Here are a few details for the next two weeks:

Create a project/card using real or faux stitching
Sponsor: Dillybeans 

There are lots of ways to play.  You can use the many dies out there that have different stitch patterns, you can also use markers, to create a nice faux stitch.  There are just too many options, just make sure that you're following the theme.  For even more details on our sponsor, Dillybeans, and their generous prize head on over to the AFC blog and while you're there check out the rest of the Bees' inspiration.

For this challenge I thought Kitty Sewing by KBD was the purrfect image to use.  I decided to go with some dies that have stitched patterns in them, including the border die from MFT, the other stitched bracket die, By DIEzyne, to cut out my image has a nice stitched border, and the buttons border die from LLLC tied it all together.  The sentiment, swatch die and scissors are also from LLLC.  I used scraps of DCWV patterned paper to make the swatches. love the different patterns on each of the swatches.  The sentiment makes me smile.

Now it's your turn to come and play.  Link up your "sew cute" project HERE and don't forget to stop by to leave some love for my teammates.  Speaking of teammates, if you haven't heard we increased our team to include a few new crafters.  Click HERE to see who our new teammates are for the rest of the year.  We're all very excited to have them join our teams!  With that happy news shared I'll sign off.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Aloha Friday and Happy Memorial Day weekend, enjoy!!
