Lastly, I am on my way to Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday #84:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=483214. We have been challenged by Matilda D. Munn (aka Aquilta The Hun# hee to put our money where our teapots are by showing our softer side and showing our quilting skills. I showed mine by HAND stitching. No modern easy sewing machine for me, a challenge is a challenge and I showed Matilda by doing it the old fashioned way! So there. Hee. Also this card will be sent to Lindsay.

What a wonderful world of whimsy Miss LL. I love the colors and the fantastic stitching on your hill as well as the dimension you've added by popping up those treetops. What a delightful interest those rounded corners add too.

Hand stitching - I'm impressed! My Home Ec teacher would have held this up to the entire class as an example of the way it was supposed to look! Cute image, great papers and I LOVE the rounded corners on the top!

Your stitching is something else!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
