my funny Valentine

I know the thought of machine stitching paper makes some of you cringe and squirm but it's ok, really! It adds such a nice textural element. I tried these cards without and they just weren't the same.

Today I worked for about six hours on the Valentine's for the old folks. They'd better rock the glue sticks on Tuesday. If they don't come out in droves, check your mailbox for a card from moi. Better late than never and all that.

I stitched, punched, stamped, glued and outlined my way through thirty-two cards. I have only one hour with the old folks. But I made sure these cards were easy to assemble and I have faith in their shaky little hands and far-sighted eyeballs. These are much better than paper plate/bean maracas, don't you think? I'll let you know how it goes.

I wish blogger would fix the spell check function. It's a pet peeve of mine to have mis-spellings all over the place. But I suppose if that's the most I can complain about . . . life ain't all bad.

Carry on, crafty ones.

Your pictures never fail to amaze. How do you make a card in a sewing machine look so good!? I can't wait to hear how things go with the seniors.

I fixed the link on my blog. The soup was very tasty. You are right I failed on presentation. I guess I will have to try again another time ;)

What the hey? I was behind 7 posts. SEVEN! Bloglines is letting me down. Anyhoo, these cards look awesome. I lurve sewing on cards and anymore, I almost feel like they're missing something without a little sewing on them. I need to remember to change the needles though -- I was sewing fabric over the weekend and the needle was ka-thunking!
