Another Quote with Flair...

{{{Please scroll down for my Greeting Farm post and Guest Designer contest deets!  THANK YOU!!!}}}

So, the other day, I found this CRAZY AMAZING QUOTE by Emerson:

"DO NOT GO where the Path may lead, GO INSTEAD where there is NO PATH, and LEAVE A TRAIL"...

I thought this was the coolest quote...and a few minutes later, our sweet Angela left me a comment saying "I have that in a stamp!"   YOU DO?  I thought....smiling at the prospect of getting online and ordering it immediately..until I realized...DUH!  I HAVE this stamp.  Oh, man...it was one of those days, HA!   Funny though-and SO glad I had it!   LOVE this from the UNITY QUOTE BUNDLE!!!  Yay!


Ok, so I am SUCH an amatuer, but my Mom gave me my sister's sewing machine that wasn't being used and I have begun to stitch on my cards!  Go easy on me...I'm not so good at the whole straight-line thing let, LOL!   What do you guys think about sewing on cards?   

I have to admit it's something I said I prob wouldn't do...too fussy..too much work..etc...but turns out I am QUITE the fussbucket and I like me that way, HA HA!

Well, be sure to head over to the UNITY blog for the complete list of FWF Participants...and have a WONDERFUL day!  I will be whooping it up with my pals Jessie, Mercy, and Pam for the weekend...prob won't sleep much but can you hear the laughing??

I love this!!!! all the layers and stitching is fabulous. I love sewing on my cards. sometimes it's just that extra little something and to be honest, lately I've been stitching on all my stuff. I feel like I really know my machine now (it's been almost 2 years) so I can whip it out pretty fast! keep at it, you'll fall in love soon enough.

Ohhhh I can hear the giggling all the way here in Australia... LOL!!!

This is a absolutely gorgeous card Jess... I LOVE sewing on cards...It's just the whole getting the machine out, threading it up thing that sometimes turns me off...And the fact that while I can make cards and sometime produce a semi good layout...I can't sew for the life of me...Fustrates me to no end!! Xx

Jennine Chambers said...

Gorgeous card!

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Love love love this card! And stitching is my favorite... doesn't have to be perfect to look great. In fact, lots of people deliberately try to make it look skew whiff.

Sounds like you're in for a fun weekend. Enjoy!
