Puppy Love

That's our new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and you're free to choose which type of stitching you prefer-needle stitching, hand stitching or faux stitching. Deneen has some fabulous tips for all three types on the challenge blog which you might find helpful. I always default to faux stitching because I guess I have a phobia of sewing machines lol. Maybe it's my bad sewing experience in high school Home Economics (don't know if they call it that anymore, it's been a while) but a ruler and marker/pen work just fine for me. Which leads me to my Top Tip- I used a ruler (as a guide) to free hand my faux stitches and a fine point marker.
My choice of image to create with - Patches the Dachshund Dog - is by our sponsor 2 Cute Ink. They supplied the DT with three images so check out what my teamies created with the other two. The embellishments were kept to a minimum because this one is going in the mail soon.
Prize is winner's choice of 2 free digital stamps.
That's all for me today, hope you'll join us for our stitching challenge! 
Crafty Hugs,
Lisa xx

This is one of my favorite color schemes, I normally use it for nautical designs, but it sure is perfect with this little cute dog too! Love the stitched look you've added to the striped paper, fab detail for a this sweet, clean design! Adorable!
