Hi. I have been away for a bit. We went on a mini vacay to Crater Lake and Canon Beach, Oregon. My son surprised us with a visit this weekend before he deploys next week so I am very happy.
If you get a chance, you should play in today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE on SCS or at least check out the thread, great source of inspiration.
I chose this DISH TOWEL for my inspiration.
I drew my border design and hand stitched. For my sentiment and flowers I heat embossed instead of stitching them. I put gem stickers in the flower centers. I love how it turned out, I am thankful I played in today's challenge. I always am inspired to create something I otherwise would not have.
Stamps: Scripture Occasions, Bird-day Hi! (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper: Night Eclipse (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Urban Prairie DP (Basic Grey)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black (from Clear Dollar Stamps), VersaMark
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Top Boss White Embossing Powder (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Gem Stickers (Basic Grey from Clear Dollar Stamps), Needle, Paper Piercer, Mouse Pad, DMC floss, heat tool
Techniques: stitching, heat embossing
Thank you so much for visiting today. If you leave a comment I can visit you and check out your creations.

Just clicked on your blog while I was on SCS. I see your son is deploying. I am sure this is extremely hard on parents. I'll say a prayer for all of you for safety and peace. Your card is just beautiful. Love the stitching.
