Happy Birthday Sweetie!

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!

  2. Beautiful and fun Birthday card! I love the papers and the straight stitch looks nice. My machine likes to give me problems from time to time too! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Birthday Sundaes!

  3. LOVE your card!! Great papers and embellishing :) The stitching looks great, that is one thing I stay far, far away from LOL. I've been scarred since Home Ec class in middle school!
