Just Magnolias and Hanglars - Sewing theme

Shocker here... I crafted! Ok, so the image I had colored a few months back... but I made this very simple card all on my own! Sort of one handed - One hand and the thumb on my right hand. LOL It wasn't easy, but I really enjoyed crafting. Can't wait to do something else right away!

But first how about my simple boy card. The them this week at Just Magnolias and Hanglars Challenge is "Sewing" Real sewing, faux sewing, what ever sewing you are comfortable with! Me. I used my sewing machine.

I used papers from My Minds Eye and Memory Box. Both with a kraft paper feel to them. I sewed down each layer of paper - and then stamped my sentiment. A brand new set from Stampavie and Tina Wenke. Love these new sentiments sets!

Then I ran a piece of green ribbon across the top of the card. Then punched out of a scrap of kraft card stock pattern paper with a brand new Fiskars border punch called Diamond Edge. Great for these "manly" cards.

Now make sure to pop over to the Just Mangolia and Hanglar challenge and see all the sewing - then join us for a great prize

Today I am going to run a few errands on my own, and then meet up with my Buddy Tracey for a pedicure! Whoo Hoo... been a long time! No Manicure this week... wouldn't be worth it to only get one hand done - sigh! But I will very much enjoy the pedicure and girl time!

Have a great day and see you tomorrow for Animal Crackers!

Love this image and all the different stitches! Sewing just adds that little extra to a card, doesn't it?
