Another SFYTT

Hi there! Here's a card I created using Jen Del Muro's "Sketch For You To Try" (SFYTT) from February 13th! You can click HERE to check out the sketch and to learn more about the UNBELIEVABLE PRIZE PACKAGE Jen has up for grabs this month!!!


I designed this card for my friends' handsome baby boy, Jonathan! Jonathan was born 15 weeks early and after spending three and a half months in the NICU he's finally home!!! And...I'm thrilled to report that he's doing GREAT!!! It's truly amazing! I am so incredibly happy and excited for my dear friends and their little bundle of joy, so I just HAD to create an extra special card for them!!!

I always like the comfy cozy feel of cards created with stitching, but I'm definitely no seamstress!! I recently purchased a Bazzill Basics "In Stitch'Z" to help me out!! I used it on this card to create the zig-zag stitching around the edges. How did I do? Then I free-hand stitched the little swirly below the airplane. What do you think?

I wrote Jonathan's name on the banner to personalize the card! Cute, huh? Here's a close-up:


I hope your week gets off to a wonderful start! I'm heading to town to grocery shop and run errands!
