If you stamp it...they will come...

Can you guess what this week's Cinema Saturday Challenge is?
You got it:

I just love this movie -it's been awhile since I've seen it, but ooh, it's a favorite! We're thinking we need to get it on DVD. Anyways, my card this week includes the challenge requirement of red stitching, but is more of a holiday card. I added the word "cherish" to the card, which is appropriate to the film which incorporates the things cherished by each of the main characters; baseball, family, following dreams, catching lost dreams, and more. I used a "quilting" technique I've seen a few time and have been dying to try, so here is my first crack at it -I may attempt another to add to the challenge and do some actual hand stitching, rather than the faux stitching you see on this sample:
I used the Dashing DSP from a couple holidays ago -I found my secret stash and couldn't put it back without using it! I just LOVE this paper! I also used the Warm Words set (still current) along with Real Red & Old Olive cs and ink.
For those interested, I will be demoing this quilting technique in my next series of Technique club meetings.
Contact me if you are interested in signing up!
Happy crafting!


  1. This is really pretty Nancy! Love those papers too!

  2. LOL!!! Totally had to crack up when you said that you found your secret stash!!! I have secret stashes too but then I forget about them or where I put them - and am always so surprised later to see them suddenly when i actually try to clean my craft corner! LOVE your sentiment - totally perfect for the movie - and your faux stitching is fabulous! Beautiful colors (LOVE that DP!!!) Thanks so much for playing along Nancy (and for guessing! your DH is such a sweetheart to guess along with us!!! Hope he plays along and guesses this friday too!!!)
    Sending you big hugs!
    Sankari :)
