I finally broke out the sewing machine today to work on the girls' dresses...yes, I have been seriously procrastinating...still. And since I lubed the machine, I didn't want to sew directly onto the dress fabric first thing. So I broke out the old paper stash and made one of these cards that I've been meaning to do for forever. Ugh. The tension is weird in the stitching. I didn't ink up the stamp well enough either. But too bad. It is going in the mail. I am planning to mail it to my friend Debbie who makes THE most beautiful cards in the whole world. Oh lordy, she will think I have suffered some debilitating mental and or physical injury when she sees this!
I couldn't stand it. After several hours, I dragged everything back out and made a second card. Debbie will get the second one, shown below.
I also repaired the first one (somewhat). The stitching is still crap, but slightly less obvious after adding a layered 'hello'. I will send it to a friend who appreciates imperfection
