Halfway Inspiration for Challenge #28 - Stitching

Thanks for joining in the Stitching fun here at Unstampabelles for our current challenge. We have a little more inspiration for you.  Hoping you will join in and remember you can have up to three entries.  Have you checked out the fantastic prize this month from our sponsor 
 you can see it here.

First off we have a lovely card from our Guest Designer this month.  Gail has stitched all the stems for the flowers.
Visit Gail's Blog for more details.

This beautiful page layout is from Jan.
There's lots of stitching on there.....through the chevrons, around the outside (though it's kinda hard to see in the pic) and the flowers have stitching on them too.

 Merry remembered that she had some pre-holed card fronts ready to be stitched that she bought from Blue Edge Crafts (they have a huge range) for last Christmas.  Merry likes the adage.....'better late than never'.

Gail was unsure what sort of stitching so has created a machine stitched card with the butterfly
and a handstitched card for Christmas.

with some hand stitching, cupcakes cut with Silhouette, patterned paper, twine,
a couple of sequins and a rub on sentiment.

From Beth  
Beth has submitted her embroidered apron.  
Please visit Beth's blog for more photos of this lovely apron.

used Stampin Up card stock Naturals White, stitched on the dress pattern,
flowers from her stash and stitched the stems.

who is not fond of stitching as a rule but used twine and 
stitched the banner and buttons to the paper before adding the flags.

From Sarah
with a banner is stitched together and to the card and
the cupcake sticker came pre-stitched, conveniently!
The sentiment is also a sticker.

Looks like Sarah, Susan and Jan were all on the same wavelength this month with banners and cupcakes :-)
