My oldest daughter turns 41 today. And I ask myself, "How can that be?" I'm not old enough! LOL
With six children and 5 kids-in-law, our birthday gifts to them are usually just small gifts. This year I decided to give this daughter a more expensive gift - a sewing machine. She has my mom's $2000 machine but has had nothing but trouble. So I bought her a pretty basic, non-computerized one. I wanted the card to be gift appropriate so this is what I came up with:
Even though I changed a few things, I do like how mine came out (and because my daughter can't compare my card with Melody's, I think she will like it too).
I used the dress form from GKD. The sentiment is Verve. I ordered the measuring tape ribbon ages ago and finally was able to use it. Of course, it only "seamed" right to do some stitching and distress the edges a bit.
Counting down - only four more family birthdays to go this month.
