It's FAUX stitching for me this week!

Hey kids! I'm baaa-ack! Let me tell ya, that nasty bug I had lasted TWO full weeks! But, guess what? I am FINALLY back to my spunky and sassy ol' self! Wheeeee! Didja miss me?! hehe! So . . . let's get right down to business, shall we?! I'm crazy excited because it's Tuesday . . . and that means it's time for another fun-tastic challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog! Our sweet and sassy Miz Judy is hostess this week . . . and here's what she's chosen for our challenge theme . . .   

Stitching - Real or Faux!

Ahem . . . did I forget to mention that I still haven't unpacked my little sewing machine?! Hey . . . work with me here! That box is protecting it from dangerous dust particles!! (That's my story and I'm stickin' to it! bwahahaha!!) Alas, I digress . . . . For obvious reasons, I've chosen the FAKE, er, I mean "faux" option. Say, just a quick sidebar here . . . didja know that "faux" is the French word for FAKE? True! You didn't know I spoke French, right?! I am just full of surprises! Sewing, unfortunately, just doesn't seem to be one of them! hehehe!

Now . . . are ya ready to see some real "faux" stitching? Well, wait no longer, my lovelies! (Note: You'll have to look closely . . . 'cuz the white "stitching" is sort of swallowed up by the white polka dots . . . oh, and there's a cool faux zig-zag "stitch" running through the ribbon! It's a regular faux fantasy, I tell ya!!)

This card features one of Sassy Cheryl 's newest images called "Sweet Little Avery"! Isn't she soooooo stinkin' cute? You can find this little sweetheart HERE at Sassy Cheryl's online store. Seriously, that Sassy Cheryl has been a busy little ladybug lately . . . wait 'til you see all of her new digi images . . . each one cuter than the last! Here's a bit of a side view . . . a "faux" side view, if you will!
