It's only words...


Morning All :) 


It's time for a rather fab new sketch from The Sweet Stop. Now, I will admit, the first time I looked at this sketch, candyfloss tumbleweed blew through my Fluffie little head. (Well, it wouldn't be just tunbleweed, would it?!)

But, after a bit of head scratching, I had a lightbulb moment and the day was saved! I did the stitching by hand and it would probably have looked better if it was not so straight, but hey-ho, it's one of those things you don't decide until after you've done it. And the whole thing is a little different for me, so, I'm not on the unhappy side of the fence.

Love how you used the paper design as an accent and that stitching is straighter then mine would have been! Probably couldn't even draw a line that well!

Brilliant card, Faye! I love the paper you used and how you did the sentiment!

Sarah said...

Hi Faye, well personally I think you're on genius level - I would've run a mile from this sketch. Not even known where to start!!!

You've made a brilliant job of it - with a gorgeous card. Lovely papers and such a striking card. Great stitching too - ummm I can't even doodle this straight!

Hope you are having a good weekend.

:D, tumble week rolls through my head too when I have to work with a sketch but in my case it's like a light bulb turning off! Look what you did with it, your card is fantastic and the hand stitching, my goodness that's dedication, it looks brilliant!

I was going to make a funny comment about the straightness of your stitching but then I thought you might not find it funny especially after the "ditzy" reference in my recent e-mail. The fact that you hand stitched the card is amazing in itself and it's a super clever interpretation of the sketch. You should definitely BE on the happy side of the fence! Hugs, Lesley

Grenouille Greetings said...

You could do something similar with an E an N an O and an L (although not in that order of course) - it's just a thought!!! Hugs, Lesley

Grenouille Greetings said...

Or a W an O an N and an S!
