Today sees the return of the SEW MANY CHALLENGE blog after a long break.  If you have missed these fabulous characters then you are in for a treat.  If you visit SEW MANY CARDS you will be able to browse and get reacquainted with the SMC bunch of fun animals and people.

To kick of our weekly challenge #20 we have a theme of 'SEW STITCHY' and would like to see real and/or faux stitching on your project.  It would be wonderful if you could use one of these great characters so why not pop over to SMC and treat yourself.

Our sponsor this week is 

Here is my DT card

I have used an image of Toga with a birthday cake coloured with Copics, I have used a mixture of papers the base one being MME the stripe is Kaiser I have cut the image out with a circle cutter and the stitching is faux using my Inkssentials white pen, I also added some card candy and red bow.
Please come join us for this weeks challenge we are also at Crafters Digital Art Centre 
Here is my card
I have used Bearlymine bp for the base the image is available from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop and is a single snowman but I added two little ones plus sentiment using my photo editing programme I think they make a lovely little snow family.
I also added lace, ribbon and card candy.

Well there you have it for today two awesome challenges with great themes for you to play with, I really hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards but for more inspiration please visit the other DT's they have some fantastic projects for you to see.
Hugs to all see you later.
