Persistence with AHSC #24 Pays off

If you talk the talk you have to walk the walk…even if the path seems a little rocky!

The Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge #24

did just that…challenged me!  

Don’t get me wrong, I love the sketch, my card just didn’t come together as easily as I’m used to.  

I think after sleeping on it, I pulled it together.  The Celebrate Today stamp is from the Hostess Rewards Stamp Sets “The Party Is On” I have used it several times and just love it!    It’s such a good reminder to Celebrate Today!  I also used the new Stitch Guide for my swirl which I sewed with Smoothie Bakers Twine from the Paradise Assortment.  I soon remembered why I chose papercrafting over quilting!  I finished the card off with three small buttons.

I provided a close up of my stitching – I would recommend separating the Bakers Twine or perhaps using Embroidery Floss.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my sketch today and will take a minute to sign up as a blog follower.  This week I will again be doing a drawing on Friday for my card of all that sign up to follow my blog by e-mail.

Happy Crafting!
