To stitch or not to stitch.



Some time ago I suggested a challenge idea on a flickr group I belong to and was asked to provide samples to show the other members - the suggestion was for a fabric based atc but as well as a stitched one I was asked for ideas for those who don't do stitching so I made two cards the first stitched and the second put together with glue,staples and brads, I think you can tell which is which.

Love both of these Maureen. Congratulations for hosting the theme x

These are both lovely Maureen and the little scraps of scrim, crochet lace, etc., are set off so well by the checked background.

Well, ofcourse I see the difference, but both are beautiful!

Hello Maureen,

I found the pic of your truly beautiful Dorset Buttons. I can not believe I missed that post. Oh, Maureen, you can use them in your art as an embellishment, you can use them as buttons on a sweater that you knit and also as a Christmas Decoration on your tree and on and on.

I really enjoyed making the ones I showed on my blog and I hope to create many many more in heaps of different sizes.

Thank you also for the lovely surprise I got in the mail from you. Hugs Judy
