Sew Grateful


This card is on its way to a special friend who just bought a NEW Loribelle Custom Designed Bag. The images are part of the Help Katie set. Please see my sidebar to click to get this set and help my dear friend Katie as she is in the fight of her life with cancer right now.

I love the way sewing looks on cards & am inspired by those cards with sewing. However, I don't often sew on cards for a few reasons. One is that my machine is computerized (not fancy, but computerized none the less) and I've read that bits of paper dust can mess that up some how. Another reason is that I have thread on my machine for a fabric sewing project at all times. Okay, that leads to the third reason. I'm just too lazy to keep changing out the thread just to sew a few stitches on a card & have to change it again! LOL!

For the following challenges:
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: NEW (new bag, new hope for Katie this year)
Pile it On: Anything Goes!
Crazy 4 Challenges: Thank you
Simon Says Challenge: Bingo (middle row, buttons, flowers, glitter)
The Pixie Cottage: Sketch

Details:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Help Katie Set
Paper: Watercolor Paper, K&Co. dp, white, yellow & teal cardstock
Other stuff: Watercolor crayons & pencils with aquabrush; flower from Michael's collection, buttons from my stash, Spellbinders dies, Ranger Ink Vintage Photo

Thank you for coming by!

That is quite the fun image! I love that it looks so real! Great job with your coloring. I'm the same way about using my maching. Guess I should ask for a small one for just craft use... Thanks so much for joining with us this week at Stampin Sisters in Christ! We hope you will be back for a new challenge next week!
