What I'm Sending..

These are what I'm sending right right: a clutch of cards I made last week with scraps from the May Gossamer Blue kits


I've discovered that if I want to have fun making cards, I need to have the sewing machine out. Without a quick line of stitching


here or there, or a swirl of thread or even a freehand twirl


I don't know where to start and I definitely don't know where to finish. For some reason, starting with the stitching makes it a whole lot easier. I like it to look casual and relaxed and I'll use one colour until I run out of bobbin.


Anyone else have a "hook"? A special sentiment stamp you use every time? or a shape of card you find works best for your ideas?

I love your stitching! I used some on a card last week for the first time in a LONG time. I just don't think of it. Yours are an inspiration, and I love how you use the pieces from the Gossamer Blue kits.

These all look wonderful - the stitching adds such a finished look even if for you it's the first thing!

Beautiful cards + I love your free stitching

Love the Easy Breasy look of your cards..... & the stitching works sew/so well! I have no 'hook'. I actually REALLY like just starting a card, with no idea & seeing what happens. That creative process on a 'mini' canvas is FUN!!!
