Happy Heart Day

Almost one month down in '08!! Valentines day is fast approaching. I have been in crank out mode to get Valentine Cards done. I have been totally inspired, as of late, by Cami's use of sewing. I am pretty sure she uses the Janome Sew Mini...well I am not so lucky to own one. My sewing machine is circa 1950 something. The bobbin winder won't work, its HUGE, the tension is horrible...and I don't know how to fix it! It belonged to my Grandma, so of course I cannot get rid of it.

So why am I talking about sewing? Because that was my intent with this card. I wanted to stitch two pieces together, but couldn't get the silly sewing machine to work. I opted for faux stitching. It is really hard to get the pieces to stay in place!!

I guess I should start watching the adds at Hancock Fabrics!!

What a great card. I have a sewing machine just like was my grandma's and I can't get rid of it either, nor can I get it to work right! :) Julie

I love this! The detail with the stitching on the side is too cute!
