Happy Un-Birthday to Me..

I am so excited today! Yesterday my dear sweet Husband stopped by Hancock Fabrics and picked up something I have wanted for a long time....a Janome Sew Mini sewing machine! They were on-sale for 39.99 and I just couldn't resist any longer. It was great not having to worry about shipping. It was a little intimidating trying to get the bobbin and machine threaded but I eventually figured it out thanks to Gina K's amazing tutorial on her website. For my card today I used a layout I have used before because I have always wanted to see what it would look like with stitching added. I am in LOVE! It was "sew" easy...lol. I used Stampin' Up DP from SAB, and the sentiment is from the retired SU set "Cuddles and Tickles". The baby was stamped using the "All in the Family " set and colored with Bic Markers. I am sure my sewing will get better, but I am quite proud of myself for this being my very first card using a sewing machine!

Veronic, this card is seeeewwwww cute:)! You did a terrific job of sewing on it with your new machine! Good choice on the DP and I really like how you finished off the scallop circle around your image! I too used Gina K's tutorial when I got my Janome, although I haven't done any sewing yet on my cards. Now I have some inspiration...thanks!
