WOYWW 136

I have actually been back in my space and working this week. My desk is pretty clean this morning as I am just getting started with a card that I want to send to my 10 year old godchild. My dh bought me this beautiful yellow desk for Christmas and I love it!


This is the finished card that I was creating. Simple and clean with just a touch of a homespun feel with the stitching. Just how I like them. Is it sad to buy a sewing machine just to sew on paper? I hope not, because I actually bought a really good one just to sew on paper. lol...

Card #1

I used Love Story by Fancy Pants to make this card. I loved the fun colors and designs which work well for a child's card. The ladybug is a Studio G stamp. I love how I can get inexpensive stamps for every season without breaking the bank. The sentiment is from Purple Onion designs. The set is called All Occasions Greetings and I have been using it for years.

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs :)

If that isn't the perfect desk, I'll eat my hat....old, wooden and yellow..I love it! Lucky you, I hope it makes you smile very day! It's not wrong to buy a sewing machine for paper stitching...I wonder how long it will be before you get the yearning to try fabric!
