Crazy4Challenges Week Five- Sew Happy

Good Morning! I am SO excited to be your challenge Hostess for the Month of October! I really hope that you enjoy what I have in store for you this month!
I'm also very pleased to announce that our Sponsor for the month of October is Stampotique Originals. I fell in love with Stampotique images when I saw their designs at CHA two years ago. Stampotique has such a variety of images that there is something for everyone there!

Being the first Challenge of the Month, this is our Prize Challenge. Carol and Jim have generously offered a $25.00 Gift Certificate to one random player. I will announce the winner with next weeks challenge post.

And now, for the Challenge~! I am sure you have gathered from the title that I want you to get stitchy with it! Let's see some Machine, hand or faux stitching somewhere on your card or creation!
I had visions of creating a gorgeous card with Machine Stitching!!! Go figure!!! My Machine decided to be rebellious with me and the bobbin kept spitting out huge lumps, bumps and knots! So for me, it's faux sewing this week.....yep a paper piercer and a Copic 02 Micro liner!
Oh well, what can ya do?? DP is from the All Dressed up Stack by DCWV, carb base black.....Coloured with Copcis......cheeks are chalk and eyemakeup a Copic Spica Pen. The Metal Tag is from MM and of course I added a little Halloween Rub on. A pretty simple card! The image is Topknot by Daniel Torrente and of course from Stampotique

If you would like to play along all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C5. Don't forget to come back to the C4C Blog and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

Let's see what our talented team of creative ladies have designed this week! Don't forget to hop over to their blogs and show them some love! You can find them on my sidebar!
