We Love Dawn

If you follow the Papertrey Ink Blog, you know that one of their designers, Dawn McVey, has been dealing with serious health issues, and PTI has organized a blog hop to show our support.
When I first started stamping and blogging over seven years ago, I did a search and found Dawn's blog.  It was just what I needed to inspire me. She had so much wonderful information about this craft and how to get started.  The rest is history.  I will always be grateful for her kind and thoughtful encouragement, and I am praying for her recovery.

I decided to go with a fall theme and try the new craft of sewing on cards.  I used an old die cut, Strip Stitch Die.  I don't think it was originally intended for this, but it turned out pretty good!  I finished my card with another die cut, Empossed Leaf.  No stamping today.

Supplies:
Paper:  PTI
Dies:  PTI
Other:  PTI felt, DMC floss and SSS sequins

  2. Love the texture and color in your stitching and your felt leaf! I've done a bit of cross stitch on cards with that die, too. Your card is really lovely - perfect for fall!
