Totally Papercrafts Challenge

Woohhhhoooo I've got that Friday feeling :)

In Stitches
so we'd like to see stitching, real or faux on your creations.

I used this fab Christmas paper from Bo Bunny, and stitched the background and then the squares using my sewing machine (I confess to having been a bit nervous putting cardstock through my beloved seing machine, but it seemed happy enough!).  I stamped the reindeer and sentiment onto kraft cardstock, and added some sparkle to the reindeer.  Quite simple really.

Our sponsor is ...

" At Die cut Dreams we sell designer die cuts many are my own design and matting, layering die cut shapes for stamping.
A range of chipboard albums, plaques and hangers all in kit form, all in lots of colour choices.
We also stock a selection of quality make charms, brads & gems plus lots of other crafting needs at very reasonable prices"

The prize on offer is a fabulous selection of 20 silver Tibetan charms
