Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
I am sitting here alone with my dog since I came down with a horrific cold last night and couldn't go join in today's feast and festivities.   Been looking at Pinterest sites that people have sent me to and find them inspiring but I'm too sick to be inspired.  So I am waiting for bedtime instead!

Well, here it is November already and my oldest daughter has a birthday on Sunday.
I made her this card that was inspired by the piece of background paper that my friend Andrea gave me.  She didn't care for it and I thought of the "You're sew Special" stamp that I have and the idea just grew from there.

I cut the girl from the Cricut Forever Young cartridge and the label from the Storybook cartridge, but I adjusted it a bit in CCR first.   I even went up to my sewing machine and sewed the little zig zag frame around the layer to tie in the sewing theme.

I'm not sure if you can see it in the scan or not, but I used a Sakura glitter gel pen on the needle and it really sparkles in person and adds to the card.

It's in the mail now, hope it makes it to her in time.
