Inventory Challenge time!

It's time for another challenge!  This week: SEWING!  Agh...I'm the kind of girl who has to take her shirts to the tailor when they need a button!  While I think it's beautiful when I see it on cards, sewing just "ain't" in my skill packet!  Lol! 

So I went very literal with this challenge...I used the word "Sew" and the background paper has stitching on it.  As you can (maybe) see, I even sewed a teeny tiny bit (only these wonderful ladies could motivate me to try to sew something!). 

Here she is:

Please stop by and see the wonderful works of:

Hello Rene! Hey girl I can see some actual stitching here! WOW I'm so proud of you. You'll be hand quilting before you know it. That's the next challenge LOL!!!! Only you would find perfect DP's to go with the theme and I love the measuring tape on the inside! Great job!
Hugs, Cathy

What a cute card! The background paper is perfect! All the embellies are wonderful and work so well for the theme of sewing. The colors are so bright they drove the clouds away for a few minutes.
