"Sew" special


This month is National Sewing Month....and it's my mom's birthday. And guess what my mom loves to do....SEW! So I made her card sewing themed with all the tools I could think of you used in sewing. The paper is Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl. Made some spools of thread from Happily Ever After and wrapped them with floss......attached some needles I colored with silver ink. Little scissors are cut from silver metallic foil with a little silver dew drop in the center ( I noticed one of them moved....but Mom took the card and I couldn't get another picture...) The hedgehog is Create a Critter and I added pins to make him a pin cushion. Sentiment is computer generated.


Fantabulous Cricut is celebrating National Sewing Month this week with a great challenge of sewing on your project. Hop on over and enter! My card is also for Paper Cutz's Critter challenge....Love it!

Your mom's card is just SEW cute!!! I'm sure she's gonna love it!!

Something she might consider -- is framing it and putting it in her sewing room. That would look awesome!! :-)

This card is fabulous! I love it! I tried adding a little sewing to a card, but mine wasn't all that great. Just something to keep working on. I know your mom is going to love this card.
