ODBDSLC121 - Stitches Again

Hi Everyone...Welcome to my blog world, and all who enter in be blessed!!

This week we continue our "You leave me in stitches" Challenge, for one more week, but we girls made another sample...

ODBDSLC121 *2nd week* of "You Leave Me in Stitches" - September

Hello all!!  I hope everyone in the USA has had the opportunity to enjoy the holiday weekend.  For many it is the last hurrah before school begins, for others school already begun.  Since many go away for Labor Day weekend in the USA, we extended the "You Keep Me in Stitches" challenge to give our viewers ample time to play along.  The linky is the same as last week's so you can add your creation on either post.  Today the team would like to share more samples for this challenge.

This is the set I chose to use:

This is my card for the 2nd week challenge...

I made this card for my Hubby's Birthday,  for the challenge, and its a card sketch also at SCS...

 I Love this lantern, its so homey, and hubby figured we have one around our farm somewhere just like this...now we have to hunt in our put away's to find it...

 Again..we did another week with the stitching, and I chose faux stitching, (which I am poor at, my white gel pen was not working properly, so my white thread was a little uneven....super excuse for a new sewing machine....lol
Also I did two of the lantern, cut one out and popped it on top of the other with Foam Tape, but it doesn't show the depth to the picture.

ODBD Stamp Sets Used: The Light of Life, & Birthday Blessings
Paper: Copic Ex-press it, SU Marina Blue, soft blue DSP, WW, 
Ink: Copics, Stazon Black,
