I Don't Do Mornings...

Well I'm still stuck on my new Coffee Break set from MCT. I don't think I'll ever get tired of using this set.  so I decided to add it to the PKS challenge using Faux Stitching.

Now for those who know me, know I do not sew...even the Sew EZ machine I bought, wasn't SO EASY!  I'll stick with my iron and stitch-witch, thank you very much!!!

I was very happy to see the challenge was Faux Stitching, and all I had to do was hand stitch with a pen. I can do that...uh huh...well had to do some practicing with it. But I think it turned out pretty good. 

I hand stitched around both the printed and solid blocks.  I used MCT latte cup from the Coffee Break set and then stamped the Grumpy Face from Everyday Characters from PKS on the cup sleeve. I colored the eyes in with a white gelly roll pen.

  I also used MCT Stitched Oval Die, and stamped a sentiment from my stash of stamps, "I don't do mornings... until I've had my coffee." And added some ribbon behind it for some color.

I'm entering this 4 1/4x 4 1/4 card into the PEACHY KEEN STAMP CHALLENGE 10: JUST CARDS: FAUX STITCHING

That's it for now.  Chao! --C

I'm sry, I usually click on everyone's entry and leave an encouraging word or two, I don't even recall seeing this one, I do love it though, and the set in your previous post is fabulous with all the animal print sleeves, so cute and great idea :)
    ty for your comment on my eggie treat boxes, I really wanted to make a centre piece for my table, and I still plan too if I get time, I want to do another banner first, I have most of it cut out already just need time to finish it. Have a great day Christine, so glad you dropped by, I'll be watching for your creation, I know it'll be great when the idea hits you :)
