 Hello, since iam going to be this month for 3 weeks on vacation i wanted to make something cute and fast. That was the plan, but after i started this tiny card it turned out that i really had to put a lot of playtime into it, just like for a regular 6x6 card. I have made it for Cute Cards Challenge for this week Faux stitching or sewing.. since i sew pretty much on EVERY card, i did want to take on the faux stiching challenge. Every label layer is pierced and i used a black and white pen for the stitching. The images used, are all the very cute Magnolia Mini stamps. Unfortunately those are at this point not available online but the new Fall Kit can now be pre-ordered :-)

Stamps: Magnolia Mini Collection stamps all received well .. iam sure you guessed it.. CAROLE!!! thank you so much sweetie
if you like the regular size of those images you can find them here:

the new Basic Grey lines "June bug" and "Lemonade" have just arrived and are now shipping
Nestabilities: Circle shapes and Label
Embellishments: Stampin up

I would like to tell you about something i have found on my blog hops.. have you ever been on Ruth's blog? Her cards are amazing and on top of all that she draws most of the images herself! I have noticed that she now has on her blog one free downloadable image. You can check it out here.

Claudia your card is just gorgeous!I can only imagine all the work punching and faux stiching all those layers. I have to tell you your faux stitching looks real I had to look really really close. Love what you did with the pearls. Just another beautiful card! I do hope they make the mini Tilda's available for purchase. I hope you have a very relaxing vacation for some much needed rest my friend.
