Imagine my excitement a couple weeks ago, when I got an email from Pam Imholz, a shaker and mover over at one of my favorite challenge sites, JUGS! She asked me if I’d like to be the guest designer for May….wow, how could I refuse? YES!! I have been a fan of their unique challenge blog since its beginning! So today begins my DT gig! Here we go!
This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge from Maria:
A while back I had been looking through my sewing supplies for things I could use in my cardmaking. I learned to sew through 4H when I was about 12, so I have been collecting sewing stuff for a loooong time! I came across a full package of vintage snaps on a neat little card; the snaps were in a circle (wish I’d taken a picture of them!) and I thought they would look cool as an embellishment on a sewing-themed card. So I pulled out some papers from October Afternoon, along with Puns from the Past, and went to work:
I did some machine stitching on the panels (still working on my straight stitches!) and shabbied them up a bit with some More Mustard ink. I also found a reel of striped bias tape, so I made a little bow out of that. The sentiment is from PTI. Thanks for visiting today! Be sure to check out the JUGS blog so you can see what the other designers have come up with!
