Virginia's View Challenge #3

Hi friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I'm so-so.  I've had a headache for the last 4 or so days and it's starting to get a bit annoying.  I had a CT scan today and I should have more info tomorrow.  Other than that, we are doing pretty good.  It's still very hot.

Today, I'm posting a card for my friend Virginia's challenge.  I "met" Virginia online a loooooong time ago when she was on my EtsyInspired design team.  She is a wonderful lady and I adore her!  I've been meaning to play along with her challenge for a while but I don't get a ton of crafty time these days.  I'm trying to make more time for it.  You can find the challenge HERE.

This month's challenge is stitching.  Let's be honest, I don't stitch a lot.  Like maybe once a year.  I even having a little sewing machine that never gets used.  A while back, I bought the stitch templates from Amy Tangerine but I've never used them so I busted them out and used Gold Metallic Divine Twine to stitch with.  Stitching with bakers twine is kind of hard because it's very thick.  I would advise you to take your paper piercer and make your holes larger before you start stitching.  I used My Mind's Eye paper and a Studio Calico heart.

Have a great day, friends!  


  1. You are on a roll! Love that gold heart!

  2. Yes, you and I went WAY back, Ashley!! In fact, you gave me the start on my very first REAL DT! To this day, I am so thankful for that. Now...onto your card, it is SO wonderfully CAS and executed! I love the Chevron card stock that you chose and the use of metal template and twines! So glad that you play Virginia's View Challenge! xoxo

  3. AWESOME!! You are definitely BACK!!!
