TLT - Plum Crazy for Stitching Amber Style

It's Tuesday and you know what that means, right?  Lots of insanity unleashed over at the TLT Challenge Blog!

This week Amber gave us the challenge of "Plum Crazy for Stitching"; not sure if we were required to use plum or just required to use stitching, but you can see all the Ladybugs played nicely and did BOTH!

Loved the challenge - thanks Amber!!

I used another image from the BRAND NEW Baby Baby set - I so *heart* the images in this collection!  Don't you want to reach out and pat that little bum up in the air under the blanket?  And look and those little piggies peeking how, how adorable!


So, so cute!  I went with purple for my image and some crazy, fun and plum/purple-ish paper from Basic Grey.

I added white enamel dots to the decorative square frame.  The layout is week 4 of the Viva La Verve Challenge (HERE); GREAT layout!  Fun and funky stitching around the outside border and then straight stitching on either side of the Plum Pudding saddle stitch ribbon.  I also added some white dots to the baby's blanket using a white gel pen (Anita did that recently so I stole the idea from her)!

Won't you play along with us this week?  We want to see you go Plum Crazy for Stitching!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week.  AND stop back tomorrow...and um....bring some sunglasses, I think you'll need them.  :D

Hugs, ~M.
