Blogger's Challenge


Good Morning!! It is finally sunny here and actually going to be in the 80's today!
This has been such a funny summer. Boston has only had 2 days above 80 this whole year. Very strange year. The good news is that our electricity bill will be much lower this summer as we haven't even put in our air conditioners.
Todays blogger's challenge was to make an item that has some type of stitching! This is a card that my friend Kathy Doucette made using the new Medallion stamp set. I added the faux stitching to the right side to enhance it.
Yes - if you are thinking that this card looks a little familiar - Kathy did CASE it from the catalog but of course added her own variation to it!
Today is Downline Stampin' Day - My downline and stmapin' friends are getting together to compare notes on the new stuff and share swaps, etc. that we have all seen! Can't wait!
Have a great weekend!
Marilyn
