Good friends n Good coffee

Don't look too closely - this card is for the STVTC29 challenge which required "sewing" on your card. This isn't something that I have much practice on....but I did it because Gina is giving away the mini-Janome sewing machine to whoever is randomly picked to win this challenge!!! yep, you read right! and if you use a Gina K stamp, your name gets entered twice.

So start sewing!!!

Wouldn't that be awesome to win! I have my old, huge, heavy sewing machine and am grateful for it! but wouldn't one of those mini's be great!

The coffee cup is colored with copics. Matted on creamy caramel and brown and sewed across the bottom. The background paper is from my stash and sewn onto mat. Scalloped just one side for a border. Had some caramel colored ribbon and thought it looked nice...then matted again onto brown.

All in all - I like it....sewing is straight this time LOL

Stamps: Gina K's - Sign of Autumn, Thanks a Million
Paper: SU's brown, caramel, white and dp from stash
Ink: Vivid's Coffee Bean
Embellishments: ribbon on either side
Technique: sewing, matting

Hoping to have a visit from my daughter and her family today after church - love playing with my 2-1/2 yr old grandaughter "Lily" and 7 mo old grandson "Logan" ....

I really should try scrapbooking them..........maybe one of these days!
Have a blessed day,

oh you know I had to come running when I saw the post title said 'coffee'!!!! :D

wonderful card and GREAT image!!!! giggles!
but please, oh please, don't ever ask me to sew on a card - or fabric for that matter. I can clog up and tangle up a sewing machine faster than you can blink. it is so NOT my thing, but I really admire anyone who can. even my faux stitching is crooked....... heavy sigh!

Maybe I will give it a try now too? Little intimidating sewing on a card though...

Oh...the bank worked...no more change on the table!!!! YIPPEE!!!

I have yet to venture into sewing on cards, maybe one day. I think the sewing looks great, I am impressed! That's a great set, I love coffee images.
