To Honor Those Who Sew ...

I'm not one of them! I don't sew, not because I don't know how, because I do - but because I've just never learned to LIKE to. Sorry, folks, but it's just not one of the things I can get "into". So, to honor those brave souls who thread up their machine, arm their zipper foot and go to it - here's to you! I envy you your patience, your ability to sew a straight seam and insert a sleeve without a single pucker. Pleats? What pleats? Never mind, just know that this is my tribute to you to whom a foot pedal is an extension of your body. Sew On!

The stamp is Perfect Fit by House Mouse Designs. Pierced around the frame to simulate sewing (my kind of sewing), added a sentiment from CardMaker Magazine and used Bearly Mine digital paper for the background. Pulled out the old reliable zigzag scissors to cut the frame and threw in a stash button and rick rack for good luck. Please be assured that this is probably as close as I'll ever come to machine sewing so I hope you appreciate my effort :)


  1. First, i luv the whole color of this card! Luv the button design on the background paper, to match the image. I luv sewing, and i wish i had more than 24 hrs a day so that i can sew & stamp!! LOL!

  2. Very cute card! I know what you mean about sewing. I can, and I do ... when I HAVE to. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Snoopy :D

  3. Really like the look of this card. I love the sewing images. Don't have any of those. Definitely a sweet card.

  4. I'm with you - I don't like to sew at all. I can do it when I have to, but I sure don't enjoy it!
    Love your card though. those little mice can come sew at my house anytime!

  5. Oh my word!! How precious this is!! :) LOVE the purple colors and the sweet HM image of course!! TEE! HUGS
