Stitched Together with Love

I finally got some craft time today.  I have been so busy this week running around running errands and sitting with my mom.  I have wanted to make a card for this weeks Mojo Monday since the day it posted on Monday.  I am cutting it really close here to the deadline.  Then guess what?  My camera battery died.  So I had to charge that up.  Always something I tell ya!  :)


I used an old set from Just Right that I have only used 3 times now.  How sad is that?  Really?  I picked the Crate Paper papers first then chose the image.  I love this pretty paper and had to use it again.  I framed the sentiment with the stitching image that came with the set by cutting it out separately then using pop dots.  I layered that on top of a Spellbinders Lacey Circle cut.  I cut pieces of ribbon for the tails and used some pretty cream colored satin ribbon.  For the scalloped bottom I just cut circles using an old Fiskars circle squeeze punch and layered them on  top of each other.  Stitched around the whole card and added a little Maya Road stick pin to the bow.  There ya have it!  :)


You can find this fabulous sketch at Mojo Monday.  



I will be back Tuesday with my Timeless Tuesday card....so stay tuned.
Hugs,
Heather

Sew pretty Heather! That JR set is one of my faves - can't believe it is retired! Love the pretty patterned paper!

lynn said...

how is your mom doing, heather? i really love how you put the circle element together-so very pretty!

Stella said...

It all sounds so easy to create but if I would give it a try I would mess it up :)
How clever to use a circle punch to crate that border and your sentiment - and all the layers-are a fabulous focal point.

I hope your mother is doing fine; sounds like there is a lot going on and to worry about. Take care.....
Hugs,
Stella

I love the dp's you combined here!! I jammed my sewing machine and haven't figured out how to fix it yet. Your stitching is beautiful!

Leslie Miller said...

This sketch has inspired some of the most beautiful cards I've seen in a long time. Yours is just gorgeous! I love the papers you chose. Such sweet colors. Guess what? I have this set, too, and I've never used it. It's one of my favorite JR sets. No good excuse, just too many stamps and too little time!
