Sketch challenge Wednesday

Time for a sketch challenge. Sometimes you just need a pretty card. I met a dear lady in Florida who is battling cancer. I got a call that I might not see this lady again ... seems the cancer is back and vicious.

I made this card with tears in my eyes.

The sewing machine is out and happened to have yellow thread - I really like the look. The verdict is mixed on whether I just ruined my needle, I will have to see how it works when I go back to stitching fabric. Or maybe I will just leave it out to stitch on cards.


  1. So sorry you've had to make a card for your friend but I'm sure she'll be cheered by your thoughtfullness and the card's beauty. Keep good thoughts of your friend in your heart - it will help both of you.

  2. Sewing machine needles are so inexpensive, it wouldn't be the end of the world if you did ruin it.

    I haven't noticed any problem sewing fabric after stitching cards on my machine, though.


Thanks for leaving me a note! Makes it all worthwhile!
