Stitching with Moxie

I have to confess that almost didn't play along with the I'm Sew Excited Challenge over at Moxie Fab World. If I was going to do it, I had to stitch on my card but my sewing machine is a bit older and the tension can be fussy. In addition, I didn't really have any 'sewing' themed stamps. Solution? Hand stitch and borrow stamps. This is the result... it took a long time to do, there were many bits of paper tossed into the recycling and several giggles from my crafty gals as I cursed again and again. So I'm ok with it, I guess, maybe, sort of .... what do you think?

Hope you are having a great week and thanks for stopping by.
