Good morning from a snowy Manchester.
Now what and who has been stitched up you may be saying. The Crafty Catz girls have. Yes our lovely Kim has picked a challenge that has got us all in stitches.
Show us your STITCHING- Real or Faux
yes we want see lots of stitching this week for our challenge. 
Our sponsor for this challenge is Sami Stamps who is giving a€12 which is 3 fab images.
So onto my card which I have used a image from our sponsor featuring this fab Panda.

Now all my sttitching is faux or embossed. The image has been coloured with promarkers then cut with a quickutz die. Papers are from stash. White card has been cut with one of my new stitched dies. Red wide grograin ribbon sentiment is a whimsey stamp. I have used a white pen to faux stitch round the heart and the Dp with hearts reminds me of cross stitch.
Well that is my inspiration hope you like and it has encouraged you to add some stitching and come and play along.
Well that it from me for today have some shopping and dt work to do so have a good day and thanks for popping by.

Not much colouring for this just a little shading and i covered up his black socks with the sentiment that came with the image.
Dp is from a Christmas paper pack I got a few years ago I loved it that much I bought a few and have used alot on projects coming up. I dont think it screams Christmas as the pattern is actually hreats. Satin ribbon from stash and a few black gems. The dies are Quickutz.
