"Sew" Fun Blog Hop

Hi, everyone!  
Today members of Gina K's Design Team have come together to host a hop with sewing as the center theme. Along the hop you will find a variety of sewing techniques from hand sewing to faux sewing!

If you came from Giovana Smith's blog, you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over to StampTV  where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.
 Now here is my card using "Faux Stitching"!
That fabulous "faux" stitching came straight from Tami Mayberry's "In Stitches" stamp set.  I absolutely love it!     I do love my sewing maching but sometimes it's nice to just be able to do some "faux" stitching and save time! This set totally makes that possible!  
Here is a pic of the set:
I recently got my hands on some of the new Spellbinders dies too, and the result is that beautiful flower + leaves+ gorgeous tag underneath!  

Well, thanks so much for stopping by!  
Head on over to my friend Jennie Harper's blog to see what she's sharing with you today!

Have a wonderful day!
Janice :)

Your Faux stitching is great, from here you would never know that it was not sewn!!! Tried to apply this comment earlier, but with blogger down, it took a while.
