Sew what's new?

I just had to pull out THIS set when I saw the Moxie Fab World sewing challenge - this set it one of my faves, and I've used it so much, I've had to restrain myself from using on every other card I make! ;)
Also for the Lily Pad Cards button challenge, Papertakes Anything Goes, CCT Anything Goes, and CPS.

Push back the bow, and you can see the whole 'sewing machine', all threaded up and ready to go. :)

Of course no sewing themed card would be complete with the word 'sew', a bit of stitching and some sheared edges. ;)

Bow topped off with a random button ;)

This is totally random, but I have to share - I recently discovered the Straight No Chaser a cappella group (I LOVE a cappella!) through THIS song, and now I'm addicted to listening to THIS one - amazing group!

Thanks SO much for the sweet comments - I've been a bit busy this week, but I hope to return the favor soon! :)
Have a blessed day!
