Hand Stamped Sentiments #80- All stitched up!

Today's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is so fun! I love sewing on my cards and scrapbook pages, but don't always do it out of shear laziness! It's not hard, it's just that I don't like getting out the sewing machine, threading it, sewing and then putting it all back! But, my new scrapbook room has the sewing machine set up permanently! Yay!

 Now, you don't have to have a sewing machine to participate in this challenge. you can hand sew, or fake sew by using a marker or pen to draw fake stitches! It's really not that easy to tell the difference!

I stitched up both sides in white. It's kind of hard to see, but it's there!

Stamps: Many Mustaches, Smarty Pants, School Lines
Ink and Paper: Under the Big Top, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodile Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point
Other: Basic Black Dotted Scalloped Ribbon, Basic Black taffeta ribbon, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Now it's your turn! I want to see what creative way you can use your needle and thread, or pen! Make sure you link back with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
