Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Stitch it up!!!

Peggy is our hostess this week on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and her challenge is for us to sew on our cards...This should be easy for me because I keep my sewing machine right below my computer table, plugged in and ready to go...but do I do it often?  Anyway, here is my Funky Scarecrows, Hallween themed card:

Have I mentioned that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays?!?  I love to see the little kids dressed up and soo darn cute you wish you still had little ones to costume?  Ahhh the memories.  Don't get me started on the older (high school) kids who come to my door with their pillowcases and have the audacity to ask for something for their brother who couldn't come out with them....ummmm NO!!!
Back in the dark ages, when I was a kid, we would have been too embarrased to dress up and go door to door trick or treating.   We did have Church Halloween parties and that was okay...but really if you are old enough to drive, don't come to my door for candy, drive to the store and buy your own, mine is for the cute "little" kids....sorry for the rant...

I love Sassy Cheryl's Halloween images, and her Snowmen, and her bears and her girls, and her boys LOL....Yep I love them all but I am in the mood for Halloween cards right now.  Loved this image when I downloaded it a couple of months ago and was just waiting for the right challenge to use it.
For some reason my sewing machine didn't like sewing on the thinner dp on the bottom layer and I tried to improve the stitching but even after ripping it out once and restitching it, it turned out the same. Didn't change a thing for the image layers except that there were 3 layers instead of 2 and it stitched correctly....what can I say...I guess a Ghost or Goblin was making the stitches...BWAHHHHHHH!!!
Don't you love the MS dripping goo border punch?  I also got a new 28mm button brad punch for the I-Top and cut out the BOO and attached it to the center of a Tim Holtz die cut flower that I had sponged the petal edges green to blend with the dp.

Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT blogs to see what they have created.  Sassy Cheryl is back from vacation and has some new images in the store and they are cute, cute, cute!!!

Well, since I have been home sick all day with a debilitating headache I didn't get anything done today, hopefully it will be gone by the time I get up in the morning.  I am going to try to assemble the 4 cards I have laying on my desk so I have something to show you the rest of the week, LOL.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
