BBTB2/Heritage/Sewing Machine

Congratulations to Cass (paperroyalty.blogspot.com) who is the winner of the draw for the tote blog candy. Cass, please email me and I will get the tote mailed to you. Thanks to each of you for stopping by the leave a comment and playing along with the blog hop. I appreciate each one of you.

Happy Monday to all....I am so glad you have stopped by. I hope you have happened here from the Bitten By The Bug2 Monday blog hop challenge here. I am first up this day and happy to present my take on the challenge to use the sewing machine die cut from the Heritage cartridge. It's a cartridge I do not have but our talented leader, Heather, shared some cuts with me. She sent two sizes in 3 colors and I opted to use them all. I am an avid sewing-gal and I love my sewing machines. I have so many friends who love to sew and I suspect one of them will eventually receive this card in the mail that basically says "so YOU" but in a slightly artsy form. I cut some black and red papers in squares and stitched them with red thread, I used my Martha edge punches and some ribbon for decorative edges, and I added a few bling-bling red jewels to the black machine. The title letters are cut from Blackletter cartridge.
In the tradition of the month end blog hop, here is my little bit of blog candy to offer up. It's a felt bag that I made, with a pretty red flower and green leaf stitched to the bag. A button is sewn for the flower center and two white buttons adorn the handle ends. It's a cute little bag for a little girl who wants to carry some of her treasures. The little tote is 8-1/2x8 inches in size... Leave me a comment and I will do a random draw on September 30. Please check back after 2PM that day and if you are the winner, please email me before October 3 with the details and I will mail the blog candy to you. If I do not hear from the winner by October 3, I will draw a new name on October 4.
Now I will lead the way to the marvelous blog and talent and creations of Donna who will sew you up something wonderful with her take on this challenge.

This is right up your alley, chickie! Love it! The color combo is one of my faves and I'm always in awe when somebody actually stitches on their card. Awesome! xxD

I knew a fine sewing person such as you would have a fantastic card. I love how you put a red machine on top of the black one. Looks so good together. And I love the zig zag card shape to go with your zig zag stitching. I admit, I don't get my machine out as often as I'd like because I don't keep it set up all the time, no room for it.
