Thanks

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

First, I'm sorry to be a bit neglectful in my blog hopping as of late.  I have come down with something and am just barely hanging on. 

I needed a couple of thank you cards so I made this up for my parents who were kind enough to send me a congrats on passing your exam gift.  I had fun spending it at Archivers this past weekend.  I'll have to post a pic of what I bought.  I love it and all of my stickers and rub-ons are so accessible right now. 

My friend came over last week and helped me out with my sewing machine again.  I wanted to sew with more than pink thread but couldn't remember how to change and wind the bobbin.  I now have black and white thread to sew with.  Slowly but surely, I'm getting the hang of it. 

Because the paper is pretty busy, I kept it pretty simple.  Isn't that super yummy paper though? My card is for the Stamp Something challenge for stitching.
***Supplies***
Patterned Paper:  Cosmo Cricket

Stamps:  CTMH Thank You
Other:  CTMH pearls and ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and making blogging worthwhile.  I'm so fortunate to have made some good cyber friends and truly appreciate the time that everyone spends on this obsession hobby of ours.

alanna,

How you feel better soon!

I love your card - the stitching is such a neat touch on a card (I had to review the video I had for my machine when I wanted to change thread - so I'm right there with you!)

Hugs!
