Just Hanging Around

Happy Tuesday!
Ok...what is with this snow!!??  It was going away and now all of a sudden we've got another 3 inches...I'm so ready for spring...please come soon!

My card today puts me in the spring spirit...it's a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and the theme is Stitching!!  If you've read my last couple of posts, you know that I've been going a little stitch crazy lately...it's been super fun using my sewing machine and I can't get enough of it.

So this challenge was super easy...and of course, I went a little nuts with the stitching...again :)
I'm so excited that we have Sassy Cheryl as our sponsor this week!!  She has provided the DT with some adorable images that I just love!  I've used Sassy Sally is Just Hanging Around.  I adore the little pup hanging next to her (though I'm considering it a kitty :) ).  I've colored them all in with my ShinHan markers and then layered them onto a chalked cloud background.

The frame has been cut out with my Silhouette and then I stitched around it.  That was not easy and I ended up hand cranking the stitches all the way around because trying to use the foot pedal would have sped it up way too fast for me to control..and I've never really done a circle before.  So I played it safe :)

I inked up some wood cloud cutouts that I won from Freckled Fawn and adhered them above my image.  I thought the little one that said Hi was good enough for a sentiment, so I finished it all off with a few little pink flowers and liquid pearls.

I hope you will join us this week for the chance to win a super adorable image from Sassy Cheryl!!!
