Memories Are Stitched With Love

This is a simple little card that I made this afternoon using some Jillibean patterned papers, one Cosmo Cricket paper, some PTI die cuts, and a few other miscellaneous goodies including an old bottle cap.

I wanted to enter some specific challenges, so I worked in all the right elements and came up with this project.  It will go into my box of cards for the Christmas Craft Boutique at my church which is one of my most favorite projects of the whole year. - Simon Says Challenge Blog - Let's Play Bingo.  My Bingo this time is Die Cuts (from Papertrey Ink on the flower cut out of felt), Glitter (on the bottons and the sentiment), and the Free Square. - Pile It On Challenges #33 - Bingo.  My Bingo here is FABRIC (felt on the flowers), TAG (two of them) and SEWING (zig zag on the white ruled paper). - THe Ribbon Caroulsel - One Stitch at a Time.  Most folks know that I stitch on almost all my cards.  I just love it. - The Kraft Journal - Make it Monday - Tag It.  My tag is toward the bottom right of the card.  I just LOVE using Kraft Journal products, and playing along in their awesome challenges.  For this particular project, I used their Natural Twill Tape.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on my card.  By the way, that digital camera just walked out the door.  So, if anyone has suggestions on a good camera for $300 or less, I would really appreciate the input.

Have a blessed day.



  1. Gorgeous - love the vintage stamp images and how you tied the colors to your elements so beautifully!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  2. You have such a talent at making vintage images shine! Love your layered flower!

  3. Hi Karen! :-) I love your bottle cap flower and the fun vintage image you used. I'm so glad you could play along with us again this week at The Kraft journal!

  4. Like the variety of embellishing. Most cameras that are under $300 are ones that use regular batteries which you have to replace a lot since a point & shoot screen is on all the time when photographing. Both my Canon cameras use a rechargeable battery and my hubby found non-Canon batteries for me so I have a spare when one is used up & Canon batteries last a long time before having to recharge.
