Just INKlined DT Monthly Blog Hop

This month for our Just INKlined DT Blog Hop I'm hosting the hop and I chose the theme "All stitched up" for the gals to create to. They could use faux or real stitching somewhere on their project. I chose this technique because I love to sew but don't often use my sewing machine on my cards and I thought this would get me going! Funnily enough my last card used sewing too!

I used the hilariously fun image "Maude, Merry Christmas" for my card - you gotta love this gal! After all - there aren't many of us with a perfect figure and I for one admire anyone who enjoys being who they are! Maude is available from Just INKlined HERE.

I used gold filament to stitch with and my DPs are from one of my current favourite Christmas paper pads from Basic Grey - the Jovial range. I gave Maude's glasses a Christmas lift with my Spica pen on the frames and some lenses out of crystal effects. I also helped Maude out with a branch of mistletoe cut using my Magnolia die - I hope she can persuade some handsome guy to meet her under it!

Your next stop on the hop is the gorgeous Jak's blog - I have a feeling she's got something special to show us!

In case you get lost along the way the order of the hop is:

Me, Jak, Mina, Peri, Cathy, Joyce, Toni, Karen, Jeni and Lydia

- you can find all of the links to their blogs on my left sidebar under the Just INKlined logo.

And don't forget to check out our DT blog HERE for continuing inspiration from the team and news about new releases etc.
