A Little Tykes picnic table in the basement is where I started off sewing on my cards. Okay, it's a finished basement, but the picnic table is really small ;>) Now, I can't stop sewing and the sewing machine is right next to my crafting supplies. If you do not see sewing on one of my cards it is either because a) I was too tired to change the thread color or b) I made a conscience effort to fight temptation!
Today's card from the present has just a bit of sewing on it. I really wanted to sew the scallops on and then could not stop, so I added a bit around the edges.
This cute little bunny, Clementine, is from Stamp Fairy. The latest challenge from Stamp Fairy is "for the girls" and really, how sweet is Clementine with her bows?!
I took sketch #111 from Card Patterns and moved the sentiment.
This card is also for the latest guest designer challenge from Tesa Broman on Yvonne Yams blog "Do More with Less" - this time around it is to color. You should really just pop over to see Tesa's creations, she makes it look so easy.
Now it is time for a blast from the past. Flashback Friday's 10.0 challenge is to re-post your first card with sewing on it. I knew immediately which card was my first, and the title of that post, "Do Not Try This at Home", should be a clue as to why I will never forget that card. I sewed the card shut!!! I ended up matting it on a different card base, but I learned my lesson and always sew the layers before putting the card together.
Have a wonderful week and hopefully you find time to play along with these fun challenges!
