Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and the theme for this fortnight is to showcase a project containing your favourite stitching - real or faux (and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite).

For me it depends on the style of the card as I do like real stitching on shabby chic styles, but because I use it the most my favourite is faux.  When I do real stitching I can't seem to get it very straight and doesn't look neat.

For my card I've used a pre-coloured image from LOTV and my Crealies stitched square dies.  The numbers are cut from a Marianne Design die and sorry I can't remember the make of the star dies. The alphabet stamp set is one I received for Christmas.  It's a Hobby Art one and is a bit grungy looking, just in case you thought it was the way I'd stamped it :) .

The sponsor for the challenge is

with a prize of 3 digi images for the lucky winner

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team, some using the sponsor's images.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
