Peachy Keen Challenge 10: Just Cards-Faux Stitching

     Hi there, me again with my card for this weeks Peachy Keen Challenge. I missed last weeks because I was very busy making a banner for sick kids in P.A. I love how it turned out, and I'm sure the kids faces will light up with all the bright colours and cute critters. Of course I used my PK stamps and Cottage Cutz dies, so I was in the PK zone so to speak LOL!
     This week's challenge is to use faux stitching on your card. I've thought about it off and on over the past 4 days and wondered what I should make.  I thought about using my dies and  about my different face stamp sets and what I could make to incorporate the stitching. Then I looked up at the card I made for my sons b-day which came about because I was trying to make a card with a pocket on it for another PK challenge back in January. Then this saying popped in to my head and I thought hey.....that would be cute. I know it won't "wow" anybody, but they may get a chuckle....and that's good for them right?!?!  :) I wonder if there are any pun challenges this week LOL :)
 Except for the seam down the middle, everything was cut, edges folded over and faux stitching added, to resemble the way real jeans are put together.
   I used PK-238 pocket posies for the pocket and flowers, and  a Sizzix tag die, it was flat on one end so I rounded the edges to get it to sit deeper in the pocket.
     If my card gave you a chuckle I'm happy, laughter is sooo good for you :) I thought this card would be great for a co-worker that's leaving or change up the wording to so bummed your moving. I think it's a really cute card idea and I'm sure I'll be making this one again. In fact our neighbours are moving, I think I'll change up the tag and give it to them. They have lived beside us for eight years and have been awesome. We will miss them and wish them the best.
     I am glad you stopped by to check out what I was up to today, check back again, I'm sure to have a few posts going up in the next while. I've made a lot more stuff than I have been blogging about but that's because I was so busy making it and trying to keep up with my DT challenges and playing along with the PK challenge every week, as well as a wedding album and baby shower stuff etc, I just haven't gotten around to blogging everything yet. :) Anyway, I am always happy to see you, and love reading your comments, hope to see you again, bye for now, go get your scrap on :) LOL
