Christmas Stitchery!

Hey boys and girls!  Sorry it's been so long since I've said hi.  I don't want you to think that I've forgot about you though.  Earlier this week I went shopping for some extra goodies for the ATC kit giveaway and I've been stitching like crazy for the hand-embroidered piece.  Don't worry- I'll post some teaser picks for those of you who just can't wait to see.

This year I stitched up a few of my Christmas cards.  Of course, it was meant to be one those projects I slowly worked on all year so that I could have tons of them but, yeah, that didn't happen.  There's always next year.  I've been such a naughty crafter.  Anyways, onto the holiday cuteness.

I couldn't get good pictures this time around.  So, the green looks totally different in all of them.  This first one is probably the most representational of the true color of the card-stock.

I covered the backs to hide the stitches.

I used some Sublime Stitching patterns to make these bad boys.  Giggly Mama has some super cute, crayon tinted ones she made using the same patterns.  Check them out here!  We even used the same set up for our penguins, great minds think alike!  Got to give her props on her tinting, she said it was the first time she'd ever tried it.  Well, you'd never know, because they look great.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Could those be any cuter? Me thinks no.

P.S. I decopaged for the first time today and I thought of you! It was fun times and paper crafting is awesome. :-D
