WMSC #86

This post has got to be short & sweet because I need to take my little girl to pre-k pretty soon...but I wanted to get this up before I go! It's another week of Waltzingmouse Sketch challenges, and I took the opportunity to sew on this card with my new sewing machine!!!! Yay...I'm a terrible sew-er, and I've struggled with a few machines before stumbling onto this one which was recommended by my idol, Debbie's so user friendly that even a klutz like me can use it with pretty good results! It is this one, that I got at Walmart for a very affordable price. I love it!

So without blah blah blah-ing any further, here is this week's sketch:

And my interpretation:


Have a great day everyone!

Supply list:

Cardstock: Cream (OT)

  1. This is so beautiful! Wonderful design and take on the sketch! Love it!

  2. I think your sewing looks so great, Rachel! Makes me want to get out my "collecting-dust-but-actually-used-only-2-times sewing machine" :) I had a friend teach me how to thread it, but by now I think I have forgotten. Only red thread for me right now :) BACK to your card... love the sentiment stamped over the doily like that...and beautiful colors, too!

  3. Love the papers, the colours, that doily and verse are just stunning. And the sewing's good too! Great work!

  4. Beautiful!
    And I think the sewing is fabby...
    especially with those gorgeous papers!
    Love the colors...
    and what you did with the doily and sentiment...
    just a fabby card! :)

  5. You did such a great job on your sewing with this one! Congrats on your new sewing machine...lucky! That is a wonderful sentiment, one new to me and it is very inspirational. Great take on the sketch.

  6. Great colour choices, I love the black polka dot criss-cross feature with the stamps, Well Done!! Thanks for playing along with the Mischief Makers this week!

  7. Great card - love your colour choices and the doily & sentiment. Fab take on the sketch :)

  8. What a beautiful card! Great color combination! Thanks for sharing this with us at WMSC! :)
