Whimsy and more...

Hello and Happy Monday to you all!  I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day weekend!  It's been a gorgeous one here!  I spent Saturday at the lake with my parents, Sunday afternoon with all of my siblings, nieces and nephews and today is just hanging out doing work around the house!  In my free time I put together my card for this week's Whimsy Stamp Challenge!  The challenge is to have sewing on your piece.  It can be real or faux.  So my card was made to fit with several challenges this week!  My stitching is hard to see on the picture but I used a blue thread and the zigzag stitch.  You'll see why in the challenge list to follow :)  The image is the fabulous Whimsy Stamps Alligator who I embossed with the CB tiny mosaic folder and embellished with a red bow.  The sentiment is using a mini alphabet set from the dollar bin at Ben Franklin.  Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to drop over to see the works of the rest of the DT!

Paper Maniac-embossing (alligator and red background cardstock)
Lala Land-bling (brad, rhinestones, half pearls)
Limelight- sketch, dots (rhinestones, half pearls, brad)
Crafty Creations- 3 or more patterned papers (3 papers stitched to make background paper)
Three Clovers- primary and secondary colors (red, orange, green papers, blue thread)
Whimsy-Sew sew sew!
A Spoon Full of Sugar-distressing (the sentiment is distressed with brown ink)
ABC-circles (orange background paper, spots and dots CB folder on red cardstock, embellies)

Pile it On- birthday

Love the what you've done with your card...I don't know if I'll ever be creative enough to pile on all of those challenges - it would take me days to think of a card! LOL
