Hi lovely bloggers - thanks for popping by!
The challenge at DU2DS Friday Challenge this fortnight is Stitching - real or faux, and of course there must also be a digi image on your project - just click the link above for full details, and inspiration from the DT.
For my DT card I have chosen one of Chris's fabulous images - from Sketching Stamper.
The Retro Pram has been coloured with Copics
and I have stitched the "kisses" with narrow satin ribbon.
Gingham BP is from Pink Petticoat, lightly distressed around the edges.  The blue cardstock and the oval punch are from SU, and the sentiment
is Anna Griffin.  
Thanks to everyone who took part in our last challenge - there was a mega amount of stunning entries once again.
Have a wonderful weekend - Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxxx

Stunning! I adore this card. Personally I think gingham was invented for babies. And that digi image is beautiful.

Couldn't wait to pop over and have a look at your card, Sylvia. It's a stunner too. That pram reminds me of the Silver Cross dolls pram I used to have years ago. I wonder what happened to it!!
I love your stitches round the edge and the soft blue is lovely for a new baby.
I'll save you some jelly babies!!
Have a great weekend. Isn't it windy today!!
Hugs Lisax

Oh Sylvia just love that image, I always wanted one of these prams when I had my first baby but my hallway was to narrow :( Thanks so much for your lovely comments you left on my blog, I've been missing too long!

Enjoy your weekend,

Hi Sylvia,
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.
Feel free to pinch the kittie picture. I saw it on someone's blog and asked her permission to use it but it wasn't hers either, she said to me to feel free to use it so I put it on my blog. I don't know who's it is but it made my laugh when I saw it too!
