Sew sweet

I have just had an unexpected overnight visit from a dear friend. We have not been able to get together much in the last few years so it was a VERY pleasant surprise. She made a lot of the curtains and pillows in my house so thought this would be an appropriate card for her. Kristal at Getting Cricky has a Sunday challenge to use a sewing theme so this fit right in with that.

I used MTC and Edwardian script to draw the sentiment
The sewing cuts are from a free clipart download from sherykdesigns
The punch is Martha Stewart

Hop on over to Kristal's blog and have some fun.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to visit my blog. I hope in some small way I can inspire someone.
Live the life you've imagined.
With hugs, Brenda
