A new month brings a new challenge...and hopefully some sunshine too!
For the month of March we want to see some stitching, real or faux! Play along by using a Serendipity Stamp or die, stitch and link up! Visit the SSCB here to find all the details.

The DT was given the theme of, "I get around". Along with our stitches we were to use an image from the Vehicles category.

Need some inspiration...
Heres your links to see how the girls get around!
Miriam Napier...out this week!

Doesn't this card say,"little boy"?

I chose this awesome image of the airplane to use for a young boys birthday card. I've seen the biplane colored many different ways and thought it would be fun to use bright colors and a lot of contrast!
Birthdays are to be celebrated and what better way to say ..."It's a special day!" This sentiment is a part of the Everyday Words Set.

The cross stitch was done with a very thin needle! Using a pierced oval die made it much easier to keep it uniform!

Stamping the message on the banner flags worked great for the inside. I masked the "Birthday" and stamped just the "Happy", twice! The banner on the bottom shows the full Happy Birthday sentiment.
Enjoy your day and thanks for looking!
