La-La Land Weekly Wednesday Challenge #2

Hey y'all! (Boy, I'm really on a southern belle kick these days... I must be channeling my mother, which is a good thing - *smile*.) I'm very proud and happy to be hosting this week's La-La Land Weekly Wednesday Challenge #2. Click on over and check it out. The challenge is to use stitching on your card or other papercraft project... either machine stitching, hand stitching or faux stitching. How fun is that! Pretty fun, if you ask me, because I happen to LOVE stitching on cards. If you haven't tried it yet, you must!

Don't you just love this sweet image of Teddy Bear Lala? I swear, she looks just like my friend Lynn's daughter Angela. Cute! And so much fun to color!

As you can see, my card has a LOT of machine stitching. I followed the Mojo Turns 100 Day 4 sketch. My card has a lot of dimension because I used SU Dimensionals (pop dots) to adhere the stitched layers for extra strength.

The cardstock is Prism, and the DP is Cosmo Cricket. Sweet Lala and her teddy are colored with my Copic markers.

So what are you waiting for? Hop on over to La-La Land Crafts Blog and play in this week's challenge. Three people will be selected to receive a special badge for their blogs, and one will receive a 25% discount on her/his order at La-La Land Crafts. But the best is just playing along... 'cause, like I said, stitching on your cards is fun!!! (*smile*)

Thanks for stopping by to visit! I love it when you do. Have a very happy day! Me, I'm going to be in my favorite place... La-La Land (visiting my husband)!
