Sew Thankful...

Hi everyone!

Hope that you are all doing well. I am once again unable to do much more than a hobble...must find out what is going on. If the ice bag and I are together much more, we are going to have to get married!


I thought I'd share a card that I made a while back. It was a "reject", made for one of the on-line PaperCrafts call, so I think it's safe to post now. The images are all from a set called "Sew Thankful", from The Angel Company.

As you can see, this is gatefolded...


I made a belly band by covering a strip of brown CS (Bazzill) with a narrow lace trim, and then some narrower satin ribbon (Hobby Lobby). The sewing machine, needle, and sentiment were stamped with Versafine Brown Ink on Kraft (you all know my Kraft addiction...), then mounted on brown CS.




Adding a magnet strip to the back of each piece helped the sewing machine piece to double as a refrigerator magnet!


Randomly stamped the other images from the sets on the two panels, matted and adhered them.


Last, the dress form was stamped on Kraft, cut out and adhered with pop dots on the inside panel. The 'needles' had been stamped prior to adding the dress form.

Have a wonderful day! I'm going to try to work on some DT cards today, so hopefully, I will be back tomorrow with some fun things to show you.

Hugs and blessings...
Patti J.

Thought for today: Ouch.

This is wonderful Patti. Your sentiment couldn't have come on a better day - a reminder that whatever God puts in our path - no matter we consider it a cross or a blessing, we should be SEW thankful. Hugs to you my friend, who always knows what I need to hear.

Sorry to hear about your ankle Patti, if you and the icebag decide to get married, don't give it all your worldly goods as lets face its iced water, not a fair exchange is it...........
Terrific card. Annette x

What a magnificent project! I love the removable magnet : )
I am so sorry you are still having trouble with your ankle but in this heat, an ice bag may not be such a bad thing!

Love this especially how you made it into a gatefold card - good idea with the magnet too. When I talk to you later today you had better have been to the doctor!!!
