Let's Sew One On!

I really should start these with a little 'dork alert'...I need a special beeper or something...maybe a flashing banner...something...

Ok...back to the post. It's time for Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge #34 and what a fun challenge it is this week! All we have to do is sew....whether it's faux or real...on our cards. You know sewing is my new favorite thing! I love to sew on cards and can't seem to stop! Even though it means dragging my really big sewing machine out and plopping it on my desk...pushing all of the junk out of the way to make room...I LOVE to sew!

...Well, I am obviously really excited about this one! If I had more energy I would link you to about a dozen cards made over the last couple of weeks but I must confess that at the time I am posting this I have the worst migraine and just cannot wait to hit my pillow! ...hey...and I made it through an entire school musical!...that I am still standing is amazing!

Ok...so to the card...This somehow felt 'patch work-y'...(just smile and nod). I also used my copics which I am truly, truly in love with! This really was a simple card. I will confess to still being 5 and loving to color so I really enjoy using these markers.

Be sure and check out the rest of Sharon's team: Julie Koerber, Dee Jackson, Tammy Herschberger, Janine Orchard, Becky Oehlers. These gals always have just the cutest projects and always inspire.

Hope you are all doing well! I will post you once the migraine has passed.
