Well, I've got a chicky for you, another digi from Sugar Creek Hollow.
The chicky, of course, wound up on a card front, and I used this weeks Sugar Creek Hollow Sketch Challenge.
Lots of work on this card--faux stitching, distressing of the background and the main image, tearing and ripping the paper, which is harder than you expect (EVERY time I do an SU order I look at that ruler for making a ripped looking edge, and every time I think it's a waste of money and don't buy it....it's got to be almost the only non-stamp thing in that catalogue I don't have, one of these days I will have to break down and buy it!)
I used a cuttlebug folder that was in my cupboard and still in it's plastic packaging. I didn't have any Prima's or flowers small enough to fit on the edge, as per the sketch, so I substituted brads. It's been so long since I used a brad it seems I forgot how to put them on and they wound up a bit crooked, oh well, it's handmade at least LOL!
Hubby gave me a great compliment. He knows I've never figured out how to use the big fancy sewing machine he bought for me a few (many!) years ago, and he looked at it and asked if I'd hand stitched it! I was so happy, it looked like real sewing to him, even though it's just my paper piercing and markers at work.
If you haven't filled in my Poll, this week I'm looking to find out what type of cards you use (not make and hoard, but actually give to people) and how many of them in a year you give away. Leave a comment and tell us about your card giving habits.
