A couple of recent cards

I made an anniversary card for my cousin and her husband at the beginning of the month. It was the first card I'd ever sewn on! Pretty cool. I always shy away from bustin' out the ol' sewing machine for paper crafting because it seems like so much hassle, but I was really happy with the results. The patterned paper is from Wild Asparagus, buttons and ribbons from PTI. This picture is a little washed out, zoom in to see the sewing.

Since then, though, I came across a little portable crafting sewing machine at Tuesday Mornings. I picked it up with not very high expectations. It was $6.99, what did I have to lose? Well, I'm pretty happy with it, actually! It's LOUD! But, it works, so I'll be adding more sewing to my cards from now on.

And then I did this little card for a friend who had just undergone surgery. Just a little pick-me-up. The image is from Stamping Bella and I colored her in with copics. I also used my nestibilities and realized I'm missing some of the parts to make this die cutting machine work right. I bought it used from eBay, so I really was just peicing things together and trying to make it work, but it never cut all the way through. So, I did a little research on the Wizard website and ordered the peice I was missing, so we'll be back in business soon.



  1. THanks for the card! I showed it to DH and he looked at it, then wondered why you were sending us a card. He figured it out AFTER he read your message inside. Duh! Your cards are so nicely done and creative!

  2. Hi, cute one! That stitching looks wonderful! You got a bargain! Your card is soooooo sweet and looks darling! I also really like the "thinking of you" card for your friend! I'm sure it will lift her up! Your certainly ARE crafty: I love the pictures of your gardening and those great t-shirts! You are awesome and the kids look ADORABLE! They will be a big hit of the 4th -o-July!


What's on your mind, friend?
