Let's stitch it up ...

Good morning everybody

I hope you are keeping warm and cosy - there certainly seems to be a chill in the air.  Halloween passed without even a flicker where I live, although I did here in the distance some fireworks.

At  Anything Goes  this week we want to see stitching - real or faux - so lots of opportunities there to show us all your stitching.  Have a look at the DT work, it's so varied and gorgeous and is a great example of how different everyone can interpret a theme!

No sewing machine working at the moment, so I have used faux stitching around my little cutie.  This is a Heather Ellis digi, and I have coloured with Copics.    The snowflake is a fabulous Memory Box die, and roses from stash.  They certainly did not look green in the daylight - the camera must be playing tricks.  I have added gems to be background paper and the little star on the sentment is the centre piece left over from the snowflake.  My background papers are from a big Basic Grey pack  from last year. 

Don't forget you can get lots of papers and a massive amount of other goodies from The Craft Den.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
