One of Those Days

I made this for two Dirty Dare Challenges. . .Julia's Stitching and Rose Ann's Flap Card. The set is One of Those Days from Paper Pretties. Since I'm only a "faux stitcher", I really had to look for a needle to actually stitch! :) First I used my piercing template to pierce holes along the edge of the flap, then I stitched with the needle and thread. I like the way it turned out, but I don't think I'll be hand-stitching on many cards! LOL

Some of you have asked about the Sophia stamp I used yesterday. You can get her NOW by signing up for the Stamp of the Month Club at Paper Pretties, otherwise she won't be available until October! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- One of Those Days (Paper Pretties); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Paper - Summer Stack (DCWV), Pacific Point, Red Riding Hood, Basic Black (SU), white (Georgia-Pacific); Accessories- Copic markers, Word Window punch, Mega Circle punch, Giga Scallop circle punch (Marvy Uchida), linen thread, paper piercer; Finished card measures 3.5"x4.25".
