The Paper Variety Challenge (Week 47): Threads

I spent all weekend taking part in the Scrapbook Expo group crop.  I went in with a plan to finish many projects, especially for all the challenges I had ignored during my busy summer months.

The Paper Variety always has some clever challenges, and I'm happy to share that they'll be celebrating their one year anniversary in early September.  Check out my new blinkie helping them celebrate!

This week's challenge is to use Threads on your project.  I loved this challenge because it gave me an excuse to pull out my embroidery floss (my other craft love is cross stitching) so any excuse to stitch makes me happy.

I also wanted to make a kid-friendly card to eventually send to a Card Cupid Cutie.  Sooo, I remembered I had a really cute hedge hog stamp that had yet to be used..and I went for it.

The stamps itself is pretty tiny, so I had to get creative in "finishing" the card.  I opted to create my own version of the flower on the stamp and I added a few rub ons to fill in the "white space".

Inside, I stamped the message, "Hello Friend."


  1. Lovely card, what a sweet stamp, love the little hedgehog :) Thanks for playing along at TPV this week :)

  2. Thanks Hannah! I'll have to find the stamp when I get home so I can tell you who the manufacturer is (in case anyone else also loves it).
