****The Feline Playful Thankful Blog Party is HERE****
McMahon Five Designs released this gorgeous image called Sweet Baby Mine, I had to create with it!
My creative Journey began with cross stitch, crochet and macrame, but it stepped up a notch when I had children. I began taking sewing classes- specifically smocking and sewing for children. I attended the Martha Pullen School in Huntsville and joined the Smocking Arts Guild of America (SAGA) and attended quite a few of the SAGA National Conventions where I learned smocking, embroidery and needlework from teachers from all over the world. I hope one day my grandchildren will wear a Christening Gown like the one shown above that I make by hand (or machine)!
I made my card with Basic Grey Capella paper and a very light touch of Copic markers. I used the Top Note Die from SU and the oval shape Nestability for my card with SU cardstock. Sewing outlines around the Basic Grey paper in a Zig Zag stitch and the Prima lace to the Die adds a touch of dimension. I had to crimp the DSP on the Top Die layer to enter the Gingersnaps Challenge. The ribbon is wire edged and I added a button center for bling-and for the Bloggers Challenge to use buttons this week. The sentiment is free with the image. I added a touch of brown ink to the edges of all of the background panels as well.
