Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back and thanks for stopping by!
Yesterday was a productive day...our cable/internet/phone service was out for half the day; therefore, I spent my time focused on crafting and not reading (or surfing) on the computer. Wow! I need to turn off the computer and more work will get accomplished.
I was asked to make a birthday card for a little boy (pronounced Jobe) who loves tractors. My first thought was John Deere and the colors green and yellow. Plus, every tractor has to have enormous wheels!
I used the following sketch from Mojo Monday. What a fun layout!
I was trying to add some stitching around the edges and the thread came undone (the sewing machine and I are still trying to get to know each other), but I didn't notice until I had part of one side stitched. After examining the edge, I decided I liked the look and continued around the entire border. I also discovered a trick how to keep my lines straight. Now I am feeling confident to do some more stitching on my cards! I told you it was a productive day!
