Well...I finally did it. I went to the sewing machine store and discovered my old, unusable (but top of the line in its day) machine was maybe fixable and maybe not. If not, it was going to be a $50 service charge, if it was, it was about a $250-350 job. Yeah...not so much. Instead, I decided to purchase a new machine outright. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it will sew a button hole, straight line and zig zag. I'm good with that! Today's card is entered in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday Sketch 161
Heart 2 Heart - Embossing
I used Veranda and Perfect Day paper, the Sip stamp set, and Creme Brulee ribbon all from CTMH. I also used Buttercup embossing powder, but since it was too bright for the Creme Brulee, I sanded it down so a little more white came through.
The spoon was too long, so I simply folded it in the middle and stuck a button over the top to hide the crease.
I love the contrast of the cool Juniper and Creme Brulee against the vibrant Tulip color. And I must give credit where it's due. This was basically stamp lifted from Betsy Veldman's Blog
You will likely be seeing a little less of me on my blog. I will continue to participate in certain card challenges in order to support Operation Write Home
, but if I'm going to really pursue writing, I need to make that a priority.
Until next time,
