Simple Thanks

I recently had a friend ask me to make a thank you card for her realtor. I wanted to make a single layer card...I have never done this before....and I have seen such a challenge ages ago. I finally took the chance to rise to the challenge and this is what I came up with! It's very simple, but I am happy with it!

The stamped image is from the SU! set called Right At Home. The sentiment is from an acrylic Ting A Ling Accents set. I used coloured pencils to colour the image and some areas were blended with OMS (odourless mineral spirits) and a blending stump. I then used my sewing machine to stitch around the main image in navy blue. The attempt here was not to sew perfectly straight lines...but to have the lines of stitching have more of a hand drawn feel. In other words...it isn't perfect, but I'm OK with that! LOL!

Oh, and in other news....Paper Pretties has an upcoming release on August 1st! Join us for Stamping in Your Jammies at 8:00 pm EST in the Paper Pretties Forum for some challenges and prizes! There will be four (yes, I did say FOUR!) new sets released as well as two new sentiments. There is also another Cutie Pie contest going on to boot!
