Downhill Run


This card is for a Clean and Simple challenge on SCS and the Crafty Creations Challenges to use stitching on your creation.    If you haven't tried sewing on your creations yet, you really should.  It's easy and fun.

The CAS challenge required us to use a slope...as in the Olympics..you know ski slope, luge, etc.  Problem is,  I live in S. Florida and my mind doesn't do snow in February, actually, after our short but freezing stint in MN, my mind doesn't do snow and cold anywhere!!!  My brain and body just shut down and I EAT.  Now, here in good ole' sunny FLA, we're growing strawberries, tomatoes and oranges but man oh man has it been cccccold here. We always get some chilly, in the 30's weather, but not for this long.  I know, I know, "quit whining!"  My kids are digging out of the snow.  
This card is all PTI...you can click to get a closer look. 
Supplies:
Paper - Papertrey Aqua Mist, Ripe Avocado, Ivory, Bitty Box Basics DP, Green Tea Leaves DP
Stamps - Button Bits
Ink - Versafine, SU marker
Accessories - sewing machine, PTI buttons, Aqua Mist ribbon, butterfly punch

Pin It!
