I was over at Miss Betsy's blog yesterday reading this fun post about sewing notions. Just like her, I remember watching my amazing seamstress of a mother sew. My mom (like Miss Betsy's mother) had her perfectly good pair of sewing scissors that I was not allowed to cut paper with.
Now-a-days, I do a good bit of sewing like mom does. And my brain is actually grown up enough to know why I shouldn't cut paper with the sewing scissors. I guess in a few years time I'll be the fearsome mom --- "DON'T CUT PAPER WITH MY SEWING SCISSORS!!!!!" ---
(my mother isn't fearsome by the way. It's just my healthy imagination that makes me think I'll make an awesome-fearsome mom)
The super sweet little ribbon card and scissors stamps came from Crafty Secrets' Material Girl set, and yesterday I managed to drop by a scrappy-store to pick up some pretty Prima flowers... and I saw the rock-crystal pins and tiny bobbins, and couldn't resist!! I love them so much.
This is my own sew-special card, created because I love sewing and cardmaking. When these two worlds meet they make me SO happy. Here is a super fun challenge where I'll be sharing this card.
Thanks for putting up with me today! happy middle-week to you.
