'Sew Much Fun'

Hi everyone! We’re back from our Summer vacation with some new, fun challenges, linky parties, and a new name! We’ve divided our large Cardz TV Design Team into 2 smaller teams, and we’re now Cardz TV Challenge Go-To Galz, and Cardz TV Linky Party Go-To Galz! We’ll be rotating every other week, so each week on Cardz TV, you’ll have a chance to enter our challenge, or link up to our linky party! We’re really excited about this new format, and hope you’ll play along! As always, we’ll use random.org to pick a winner for each linky party, for Cardz TV Stamps and lots of other fun prizes!
The Cardz TV Go-To Galz have been really creative in choosing their linky party themes, SO…are you ready for some fun?

This is what our Cardz TV Linky Party Go-To Galz have come up with for this week:

Linky Party #1 "Sew Much Fun"
Create a card, layout or craft using real or faux stitching.

You have until noon EST, Thursday, August 15th, to post your name and a link to your creation, using Inlinkz below. Many of you have asked, and no, you don't have to use Cardz TV Stamps to link up and enter! The link up winner, picked by random.org, will receive a set of Cardz TV Stamps! Head on over to Cardz TV to link and check out the awesomeness of my Go-To Galz DT Sister's!!!

The awesome Cardz TV Linky Party Go-To Galz have done an amazing job on this link up, and given us some fantastic inspiration! Be sure go by each of their blogs, become a follower, and leave them some comment love!

Hope you all have fun with this linky party! Good luck everyone...we can't wait to see what you create

 
I made an A2 card for our very first Go-To Galz Linky Party! I popped into the Silhouette Store and went shopping for things to do with sewing. This is what I came up with: 
 
 
Pretty cute, don't ya think? I finally used that craft sewing machine that I just had to have a few years ago, that hubby bought me for my birthday. Shhhh, don't tell him, he thinks I had already used it!! As you can tell, I got it off to a bad messy start and I can't stitch a straight line!! But I think it adds charter to my card! This pin cushion is #10576 in the Silhouette store. I'm still learning all of the ends and outs of using my Cameo. But I'm loving it! The bg DP is from Cosmo Cricket-Garden Variety. And the awesome sentiment is from one of Mary's new stamp sets called 'Sew Much Fun'!!! You can buy your very own set right here.

I hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
