Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge 8 - 21 March

Hi there


I am back today with a new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge. But before I get to that, have you bought the new CHA and March release stamps yet?  I love them all :)


Ok, here is the fabulous inspiration photo that Kim has chosen for this challenge.


I obviously was inspired by the felt and decided to make this tag. I stamped the image and sentiment on the felt first and then hand stitched around them with embroidery floss. 

The felt has been backed with card stock so that you are still able to write a message. 


I hope you feel inspired and come and join us for this fun challenge.  If you don't have any Paper Smooches stamps, grab one of the free digi stamps here.

You can find all the details of the challenge on the blog, including the fabulous prizes Kim offers and while you are there, be sure to check out the other DT projects too :)

Cheers

Jay Gee
