Look HERE for my Friends Having Fun Challenge
We've got a new challenge for you over at Sew Many Challenges! This week we have a dual theme challenge. Using the sketch below, create a project with a Mother's theme! It could be a new mom, grandmother, mom, however you may interpret it! Be sure to check out Sew Many Cards for some awesome images to use on your challenge! You have until Thursday, 11:59PM EST to submit your project link HERE!
This is what I've come up with for this week!

Our challenge winner this week will win 3 digital stamps from

So on my card this week, I used Cammi from Sew Many Cards
I'll be sending this to my mother in law, who is a seamstress, so I think it's very fitting for her. I think she'll get a kick and a smile from it.
All the papers came from the DCWV The Crafty Stack. I used some random buttons that I had in my stash. I took some floss thread and spun it around the spool that comes with the image. The sentiment is computer generated using the Topstitch Font. I went back later and added Glossy Accents to the tips of the antennas, nose and Cammi's eyes. I used my copics to color her.

We hope you'll join us this week!! Don't forget to check out all of our DT's creations by checking out their amazing blogs, which you'll find in my left sidebar or by watching our slideshow at the top of the Sew Many Challenges Blog!
