This birthday card is for my dear friend who really is such a Sweetie!
I love making easel cards, they are one of my favourite types of cards to make. So I was really pleased when the Birthday Sundaes challenge this week was to make an easel card - perfect!
I used the Mojo Monday square sketch this week (for the top section of my easel card).
My sewing machine and I have had issues this week - I wanted to zig zag stitch and it didn't want to zig zag stitch. The sewing machine won - I ended up just doing a straight stitch. Not sure what it's problem is - it's just had a big service and should be running fine...
Anyway, my point is, there is stitching on my card! And it's pink...which means that I actually changed the cotton by myself and filled an empty bobbin and inserted it back in by myself!! Will wonders never cease! I must confess, it did take a rather long phone call to my very crafty and talented Patchwork-sewing Mum to get instructions on how to do it...and then after failing and giving up I had one last, desperate search for the sewing machine instruction manual...and wouldn't you know it, I found it! Two minutes later and I was raring to go! Boy, the instructions were so easy to follow!
Thanks for looking!
