Gina K Designs Sew Fun Blog Hop!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our monthly blog hop!

Members of Gina K.'s Design Team have come together to host a hop with sewing as the center theme. Along the hop you will find a variety of sewing techniques from hand sewing to faux sewing!

If you came from Carolina Buchting you are in the right spot!! If not make sure to head over to StampTV's Main Forum where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

I decided to do just a bit of accent stitching on my card...my little janome bit the dust and I havent purchased another one yet...but I bet I will after seeing today's inspirations! LOL! Here is my card:



And a close up of the stitching:



I inked my image with SU! markers, then stamped onto white cardstock. Before I did the touch of stitching, I used my paper piercer to make the holes on the flowers, just to make it easier in stitching it!

Next on your stop is the oh so talented Deb Felts!! Can't wait to see what she and all the others have for us!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
