Sew Glad

A quick card this morning--another triple-play!  Here are the three challenges this fulfills:

DSCF4824

This was a fun card--I have managed to carve out a space for my sewing machine on my craft table, so I have been able to sew a little more on my cards!  This is the first time I have done pleating--it is a little tricky, but what a neat effect!  Here is the sketch from the Divas:

and the Gingersnap Creations challenge, which was to incorporate a "game" into your card......well, my game is "Button, Button, Who's Got the Button"!   Yeah, I know....it's a stretch, but it is a game!!

Thanks for looking today and I hope you have a blessed day!

  • Paper:  Confetti Cream, Bordering Blue, Sahara Sand, Bella Bleu DP

  17. LeAnne I keep saying, "I will not use my sewing machine on paper." But your card looks so great I know I will have to try it. I love the pleats. Your sewing is excellent.
    So does your work table get smaller every time you sit down to work on a project? I have a 9 ft table and end up with about 2ft of work space after I haul every thing out to use.
