This month's Calendar Girls theme was "Sew" Glad Were Friends. The challenges were to use some kind of stitching on the card, at least one button as an embellishment, and the sentiment "Sew" Glad Were Friends. We also are to send our card to a friend and tell them how much we appreciate them and that we are "sew" glad they are our friend.
I used Poppy Parade, Garden Green and Very Vanilla cardstock. My designer paper is Material Girl from Cosmo Cricket. The image and sentiment on the inside of the card are from a retired SU set called I Like Your Style. The sentiment on the front of the card was made using a small snap stamp set from Joann's. I used my sewing machine to stitch together my cardstock and designer papers. (I need more practice.) I added my green button as required and some great ribbon that looks like a sewing tape measure. I found this ribbon years ago at a local scrapbooking store but do not know who makes it.
I am sending this card to someone who over the past couple of years has been a wonderful friend and prayer warrior as well as an encourager when I have hit some stressful times. She is a wonderful gift from God! I hope she likes my card.
