Gather Friends Like Flowers...

This is the first card that I've created with my new Janome Sew Mini sewing machine. I love the look of real stitching on cards but never wanted to lug out my big machine. This little mini machine is SO {sew} easy to operate and very lightweight and portable. {enabler alert!} I purchased mine on SALE at Hancock Fabrics in Omaha. Now I just need to learn how to sew a straight line! :)

The image is from a stamp that a friend loaned me because she knows that I love to color. (Thanks Jason! :) It's by Stamps Happen, Inc. and appropriately named "Gather Friends Like Flowers" #80042. The coloring is done with prismacolor pencils.

It feels GREAT to be spending time in my craft room today. I hope you're having an enjoyable day too! Smiles, Pam :)

Great card! As always, your coloring is perfect! Love my little Janome, but I DO wish they had put lines on there so it would be easier to sew a straight line. I have the same problem!
