Oh, NUTS!


I LOVE a good pun. (to be perfectly honest, I like most groan-worthy puns, too!) So when I saw this cute little Whipper Snapper stamp I knew I had to add it to my collection.  Oh, the pun possibilities! :) 

I decided to play along with Charisma Cardz.  The current theme is "in stitches (real or faux)."  I love the look of stitching on cards, but I don't have a sewing machine, nor would I be able to operate one even if I did.  The original plan was to go with faux stitching, but I decided to be brave and try hand stitching with a needle and thread.  It was actually quite easy, if a little time consuming.  I just took my paper piercer (AKA old compass that I nicked--with permission--from my grandmother), punched holes in a (mostly) straight line, and used a needed and four strands of thread (to make it more like embroidery floss).  I love the additional texture and interest stitching adds to the card.  You might see a little more stitching on my cards. 



Thanks for looking!  Have a great day! :)
