Lily Wishes

We're experiencing some nasty rain here in southern Ontario so I thought a cheery stitched lily card would be nice for a post today.

Labrador Puppy

I have been a big fan of the Mojo Monday card challenge for a few years now.  I have not entered any challenges because I did not have a blog to link my card to.  I am very excited to enter my first card challenge at Mojo Monday.  I have been waiting for the right design for this cute little stitched lab puppy and this week's sketch was all the inspiration I needed.

This card reminds me of many visits to eastern Canada and the beautiful lighthouses that you can see on the shorelines.

Baby Carriage

I have to say that this is one of my favourite stitched designs.  It is simple yet perfect for the occasion.  New parents are always thrilled to receive this card and I have even had some people frame it for the nursery.

I have also stitched this design in blue.

I love hydrangeas and am sad that the upcoming frost is going to ruin their beauty in my backyard.

Santa's Sleigh

This week's Freshly Made Sketch was great inspiration for my stitched Santa's Sleigh.  I tweaked it a bit by turning the sketch on its side.

"Wishing you and yours a Merry Holiday Season"

This card was an award winner this week.  Very exciting!

Ho Ho Ho

I couldn't resist sewing this adorable Santa.  I also love the addition of blue to Christmas red and green.

With Sincere Sympathy

I wish I didn't need to have Sympathy cards on hand but life is sometimes hard and a little note from someone can brighten a day.  I hope by sending a hand stitched card that people know I am thinking of them.

Fall Thanks

I have been wanting to turn these papers into a card for quite a while and this week's "Freshly Made Sketch" was a great inspiration to finally use these papers.  With Thanksgiving this weekend I thought they would be perfect Fall colours.

Each week at a blog site called "Freshly Made Sketches" a design team creates different cards based on the same sketch (see above).  Card makers are invited to submit their designs to show how they interpret the sketch.  I submitted the above card this week and was chosen as a winner.  How exciting for me!  Thank you to "Freshly Made Sketches" for providing such great sketches!
