The Calendar Girls

OH MY!

Debbie was our hostess this month and she threw a hum dinger at me....to make a card with sewing on it...YIKES!

So, I am hoping this works for her.  There is sewing embossing, stitching, stamping of sewing, AND a sew sentiment (just not the one intended on the front, but the inside does say that "I am SEW glad we are friends!". 



The stamp is from Bugaboo, the sentiments are computer generated, the tag and button from Piggy Tales and the bling was from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!  Check out the rest of the Calendar Girls - the links are to the right!!
Huggz,
April

I like the sewing, it works for me, I hate dragging my machine out, so I like to do faux and yours looks perfect. What sweet little image and color combo. Have a great day.

Cute card April! I do like the faux stitching and all of the elements you used to create this! All of this sewing on paper is new to me, but I think I may just have to practice...both the real and the faux.

Great take on the challenge ☺ Sew glad you are a Calendar Girl!!

I love the clever idea U used, by adding a line of dry embossing at the bottom of your card (U have that folder too and never thought of it,duh!:/)and I SEW like the added real stitching too. Your choice of d/p makes the card pop...the whole ensamble is SEW adorable!!♥
