Happy Monday! It came too fast for Joel and me; Joel’s been fighting a cold for the last week and we were both hoping the weekend would provide enough down time for him to get better. Unfortunately, he’s still feeling cruddy, so I get to make more soup! Fortunately, we both like soup 🙂 Also fortunately, my job search has been unfruitful thus far, so I have plenty of time to play nursemaid. Poor guy! I’m hoping he feels better by Valentine’s Day.
Now, on to Mojo Monday! I didn’t quite follow the sketch exactly this time…but it’s close enough 😛 Here’s the sketch:
And here’s my card:
First of all, I turned the sketch sideways. And then…use your imagination 🙂 The spool and dress form stamps are from the Material Girl clear art stamps set by Crafty Secrets, which you can find by clicking this link. You can’t see it very well in this picture (or in any picture I took!), but I used VersaMark to stamp a sewing machine behind the sentiment, then I embossed it with clear embossing powder. To make it pop a little, I dirtied it up with some brown ink. Just a touch. I wrapped some twine around the spool and stitched around the edges of everything to complete the theme. One of my favorite parts of this card is the measuring tape “ribbon.” It adds just the right touch, don’t you think?
Have a great day!
