A stitch in time.... Inky Impressions Challenge

The challenge this week at the Inky Impressions Challenge blog is A Stitch in Time...... you can use real stitching or faux stitching on your project.

I made an A2 box - the tutorial is on SCS and it was really easy!!! I love it, makes a great gift!!!! So, here is my project, an A2 box full of BLING!! This gift is going to someone who reads my blog, so I can't say who it is for (shhhhhhhhhhhhh!!)

Here is the top view:

I used faux stitching because I am too chicken to thread up this little mini provo craft sewing machine that I have - 3 people have told me how hard it is to thread, and so it sits on my shelf!!! UGH!!! Any tips on threading this little baby??? LOL

And - the side view so you can see the pretty little scallops & butterflies!!

PLEASE join us over at Inky Impressions Challenge Blog for this week's challenge! We would LOVE to see what you can stitch up for us!!!!! While you are there, check out what the other Inspirational Inkettes have stitched up for you!!!!! You will LOVE it!!!! If you don't have any of these cuties, you should head on over to the store and get yourself a couple!!!! THEY ARE SOOOOOOOOO adorable!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!! HAVE a great rest of the week!!!!

Awesome box, Chris! Wow, I didn't even realize that your stitches aren't from a sewiing machine. Pretty good for faux stitches. I used my sewing machine. . .it actually is easy once you get a hang of it.

Beautiful job with your coloring too! Love the color combo that you used!!
