SAF 2015 :Pins and Needle Challenge

The pins and needle challenge: use trinket pins, machine stitching, or stamped stitching on a card.
Those trinket pins are somewhere in the embellishment drawer. And while I love using my sewing machine with my cards,  my sewing machine needs some major tension refinement (It went crazy wonky when I got ready to hem six drapery panels a few months ago. I hemmed them by hand because I was so frustrated trying to adjust the tension.) Sooooo, stamped stitching for this gal for this challenge. I used Sew Simple Borders inked in red.

SAF 21015: Patterns Challenge

For the pattern challenge, I chose the card pattern by Danielle Flanders.

 I followed her sample card by using Nostalgic Notions plus my old, much-used CHF gingham background stamp.

SAF 2015 Bridal Challenge

I hadn't planned on participating in SAF 2015, but yesterday morning as the festivities began I decided
to add some craft time to my day and play along with some of the challenges. The first challenge, the bridal challenge was to create an all white card with the only use of color for the sentiment.
