Oooh! Aaah!

Hi all,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We went to a firework display on Saturday. It's the first time Daisy has seen them as she's usually asleep by the time they start. She and Martha loved them and I was amazed by how long the display went on for. It was at least 15 minutes. Yesterday, Daisy and I had another Annie rehearsal, while Martha had some Daddy time.
This week, Incy Wincy are being sponsored by Tiffany Doodles, who generously gave the DT some images to play with. Our theme this week is stitching, real or faux. I have chosen to use flower and mushrooms and I actually dug out my sewing machine for this. Don't look too closely, as the stitching is a bit wonky, but I like to think it is adding to the vintage/shabby chic look! The papers are by DCWV and papermania. I have layered the flower and mushrooms for a little bit of depth. Please check out the projects from the rest of the fab DT.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
OSAAT - use a digi
Catch the bug - anything goes
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Make it Monday - always anything goes

i spotted your card on the Make it Monday blog and popped over to have a better look. I love the soft look and the pastel colours. What fabulous flowers you have made too. It reminds me I must get out my machine and do some myself.
