Sewing Machine Challenge to Cindy


Cindy talked about sewing on cards so I challenged her to get out her machine. She accepted and has headed to the attic to get it. I would have refused if I had to go to the attic. You get to it via the garage and the attic stairs which I have never set foot on. The attic is where my furnace is so when the filters need to be changed I call on my 20 year old granddaughter to do the honors.

I cheated a little on this challenge. I had all of the elements ready and I just needed to sew them instead of using my ATG. I have 6 cards for my OWH box. My sewing is a little rusty I admit.

The image is a Bugaboo digi colored with Copics. The little cloud I embossed came via my friend Peggy B. She sent me a nice big envelope of them in several sizes.

I like sewing on cards also. Did a lot of it in 2012. I really like how the sentiment is sewn both sides, like a tag.

Good job, Cora. I've never used my sewing machine for cards. It just sits unused in the closet.

Holy cow! You are wicked fast! I've JUST set mine up. I LOVE the addition of sewing on your card. Now I need to figure out where I'm going with mine... :)

I like sewing on cards. Too bad I can't sew. Well I can but I have my grandma's old Singer and it doesn't like me.
