A thank you from dressy Joyce

Hiya everyone!
I created a card using Dressy Joyce from The Greeting Farm. Sorry for not having links but my computer is acting really crappy lately so I've been having to use other electronic gadgets to do this.

On my looong wish list is a sewing machine. You must be thinking... Oh wow Sweet, you sew too? Uh, no, not exactly! Or at least not on fabric. I love the look of all those beautiful cards with thread stitching on them! So... I use the Sew easy instead. Well, I tried. I don't do too well with it. So here I go with the needle punching my holes individually and my daughter look terrified saying "oh mommy please be careful, your pushing that needle and you'll get hurt!" I must say that I came out of this project pretty safe.

Other materials used:
Copics: Hair- E29, E37, E35, E33, E31
Skin- E0000, E000, E00, E01
E02, C7, R22, R32
clear Spica
Clothes- R30, R32, R22
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Papers: MME Tresbelle collection
AC cardstock
Inks: Memento-black, distress ink-
antique linen

Thanks for visiting!

Hahahaha!! I am laughing because I feel the same way about sewing on cards- I absolutely love the look but don't know how to do and don't own a machine. And I bought so many of those darn sew easy heads -- and they're hard to use and aren't always straight! Boo!!

Love her hair coloring!! Fabulous card!

Nadine said...

I sooooo need to learn how to sew on cards! Except space is an issue and I don't have room for another machine in my home! Maybe one of these days…

What a sweet card and fabulous coloring! Love how you did the highlights on her hair!

Cami said...

Beautiful card! I LOVE how you did her hair! I could really learn a lot form you =) and a sewing machine is such a great investment! I use mine in just about every paper craft I make. So many possibilities! Thanks for sharing your talent!

Wow, I love how you colored Dressy Joyce! I'm still trying to improve on my coloring.
I was looking at some of your previous posts. I love your landscape photos! Sometimes I think our phones take better photos than the camera.
BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit.
See you in blogland!

beautifully colored and gorgeous patterned paper. Lol, I have a sew easy too and I cannot use it for the life of me. I also have a craft sewing machine, but no room for it to be out all the time and I don't know how to sew! LOL!

This is so gorgeous! She is coloured beautifully. I have the sew easy aswell....do you have the mat that comes with it? I was having a lot of trouble and went back to the store and they recommended buying the mat. Now it works better than ever!
