Sew Grateful

I started sewing and making my own clothes when I was 12, continued on making clothes for my children.  I even made bridesmaid dresses for weddings.  Now my husband calls my mending basket the "place of no return" because I can hardly bring myself to use the sewing machine.  But I do make doll clothes every once in a while (usually around Christmas) for my granddaughters' American Girl dolls.  And I actually stitch on cards every once in a great while. For this card, I decided to not only do some stitching but to use a piece of material on the bottom half of the card to go along with the digital image (all paper pieced).

The main image is by Pattie's Creation and the sentiment is Clear Dollar Stamps.

Sketch is CPS #78
