No More Excuses--Sewing Saturday!

After all the fun I had making this card awhile ago, I swore that I would do more sewing on my cards.   Ever since then, the machine has been out and ready to go--the whole purpose of leaving it out was so that I would use it more often! For some reason, even though I see it every time I sit down at my craft table, my little Janome sewing maching seems to overwhelm me and I hardly ever use it. Definitely, not my original intention that justified the purchase when I bought it.  But, when I do use it I'm reminded of how easy and fun it is!  So, now...that's it, no more excuses!   I MUST use it and WILL!

With that being said, I welcome you to my first installment of Sewing Saturday! Every Saturday I'm challenging myself to share something with you that has sewing on it! If you see a card during the other days of the week with sewing on it, then that's just a bonus! ;-)

In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, here's my first Sewing Saturday card.

I stamped DRS Designs Cancer Is...Greeting (L113) as the focal point on my card.  I stamped it in black ink and then masked off the edges with Post-It Notes and sponged pink ink over the wording.  After I removed the Post It Notes I had a nice white frame around it.  I used some Photo Corner punches to decorate around the saying a touch of pink ribbon and a single pink brad made it complete!

Thanks for stopping by!
 So now that I've told you all about my Sewing Saturdays, you must hold me to it! Feel free to scold me in your comments, when you don't see a Sewing Saturday card, ok?

Oh Jennifer this is a gorgeous card and oh how I love that sentiment you should use your sewing machine more as you have perfect lines going there you should see mine we I sew.

Lovely lovely card.
