Sewing was among my first hobbies as a child--my mom is an excellent seamstress and taught me to sew when I was in fifth grade! Although I don't sew as much as I used to, I still love the satisfaction of creating something out of a piece of fabric. So of course, I am a sucker for any sewing related stamp set and couldn't part with the set Sew Suite that retired ages ago. Lucky I didn't because it is perfect for LeAnne's "sew suite" challenge!
I could see this card completed in my mind's eye and was thrilled that it turned out just as I imagined. That so rarely happens, lol! Anyway, the card base is Crumb Cake and the top Whisper White panel is 3.5" x 5.5". True "random" stamping is so hard for me to do--what with the OCD tendencies, ha--so, of course I used my stamp placement tool to get these sweet little sewing machines just right. I alternated colors of Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral (I know it looks red here), and Crumb Cake. The sentiment combines a couple stamp sets--I stamped the "sew" in Early Espresso ink using the Hand Lettered Alphabet photopolymer set while the "thanks" and "much" came from the Crazy About You [retired] set.
I hope you liked my card today. Be sure to check out all the eye candy from my teammates over at The Paper Players. I hope you're inspired to join us before the challenge closes on Friday, February 23rd at Noon (PST).

We had a rare weekend off from volleyball this weekend but here's a shot from the previous weekend's tournament in Orlando. Yep, that's our daughter leaping over the backpacks and a teammate on the sidelines to save this pass and assist in a point. They ended up losing the match but they sure played their hearts out. Love their determination--every point matters!
Thanks for looking in on me...take care, friends!
