Less is More week 77-Theme

"Hey there Mister Blue I'm so pleased to be with you
        Look around see what you do, everybody smiles at you"

This song is stuck in my head so apologies folks:)
At least it's true today!
The LIM challenge this week is a theme and it's

SEWING
For this it could be machine or hand sewing.. faux or stamped... you could even use sewing related images... just let your imagination roam!


I've never stitched on a card before although I can use a sewing machine but I remembered I had a little hand machine that I could use. Perhaps I should have got my big machine out the stitching would have been straighter:) Anyway I liked the final result, what do you think?




Recipe:
The poster found on a sewing blog
Digi stamp from Vintage Stamps
Green thread

Check out the amazing cards that Chrissie and Mandi have produced and thanks for taking the time to visit I appreciate any thoughts you may have:)

That's a great card - love the poster and the sewing doesn't look too wonky to me. I do loads of stitching but have never actually done any on a card apart from the faux kind with a pen!

Sasha said...

Fabulous digi's and sewing,Val. I love the bobbin with thread and keep calm label. Such a great take on the challenge x

Karen said...
