Sketch #5 and Sewing

This week our sketch is brought to you by Sandy Ang and she decided to add the challenge of sewing to your card. 

And here's what Team A did with it. 

Isn't it amazing at how great this looks with just some sewing?! and the text.

Look at that sweet little girl carrying the Christmas tree! Love the swirl stitching up the side.

Here's another great Christmas image.  Look at that faux sewing around the greeting.  She did a great job!

Isn't this beautiful? The prima flower matches the pattern paper almost perfectly.  And that stitching is perfectly placed.

And our Guest Designer for this week is....

Hi!! I am IRIT from sunny ISRAEL. In my "real life" I am a dentist for more than 25 years, but for last 3 years I do it as a part time job because I need some extra time to run my Israeli online scrap shop and I have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of teeth. I have been married for 28 years to a retired high police officer and the full time family cook these days. I am a mom to 4 grown ups: 2 sons and twin daughters and the empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself. My oldest son is a high army officer and recently married. The second one is " a world traveler" - for last 4 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year. This year he lives in Spain and works there. My twins are in their second year of college and my scrapbooking inspiration. I need to say that I have been totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl. For many years it was polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I've seen scrapbook LO for the first time in my life (only 5 years ago during my visit to USA) I understood finally that I am in love with paper. Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less a card making, but I love it all and hope you like my card. I am a real challenge blogs frick, made about 10 DT on challenge blogs last year and lots of GDT too. Today I design for UK chipboard company named Tando creative and flower inspired challenge blog named Pocket full of posies and I am on Scrapbooking News and Reviews designing staff. I was published in print in Israel several times and was published in every possible web magazine during the last year.

Finally my other addiction is..... folk dancing. So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing

Here is her beautiful card!
She made it for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  It is just amazingly beautiful! Thanks so much for joining us this week at LCOM!

So, are you ready for the SURPRISE!!!!

We have a SURPRISE Guest Designer this week.... and here she is...

Hi, my name is Darlene D'Eon. I live on Canada's east coast in Nova Scotia. I've been married to my honey for 26 years and we have two grown children and one daughter-in-law. I've been scrapbooking and cardmaking for 6 years. Paper crafting is a very personal craft for me, for years I've helped supplement the family income with quilting and have enjoyed it very much, but have kept almost none of my work for myself and family. With scrapbooking and cardmaking, it's all about us, making treasures for our family to preserve. Thanks for this opportunity to share my cardmaking with you all!!!

Here is her sassy sweet card!
What a great fall card! I love the flower and the little squares in the left hand corner! Thanks so much for joining in on the fun with the Card Team this week!

Hope you've enjoyed the DT members takes on the sketch. Now it's your turn. What is your take? Let's see what you do with it and some sewing! Post your card link to Mr. Linky by Saturday, October 16th at 8PM EST for a chance to be our next GDT for the week of October 24th and 15% off your next LCOM order. Can't wait to see your cards!!!
