Paper Hoarders DT "Sewing Machine Day"

Hello everyone and WELCOME!! Today is another Paper Hoarders DT day and we are soo excited to have you!!  Today's projects are inspired by a lil bit of "not so common" and "useless" (to most people) info about SEWING MACHINES!! 
Did you know??? 
Today, July 13 is "Sewing Machine Day" - It was invented on this day in France in the 1830's patented
in 1846 in U.S. This is also celebrated Sept. 10 .

 So.. the challenge was to use stitching, thread, needles.. anything "sewing" related on a project. The ladies WOW'd us all with their work!! Be sure to visit their blogs as well and leave a lil love!! 

Here is my contribution to the challenge. 
 I LOVE how this card came out!! Most of you know I have had NO MOJO lately and it felt good to create something with paper again!! I even pulled out my lil Pixie sewing machine and dusted it off and USED IT!! That poor thing has definitely been neglected!! 

 For this card I used:

Graphic 45: A Ladies Diary ( LOVE this paper stack)
Prima Flowers : Avon Rose Printery
Helmar 450 ( my FAV clear quick drying adhesive EVER) ; zap dots
Lace I got from a yard sale
Michaels : Pearls


Thank all of you ladies for doing such AWESOME work!! You always do such a wonderful jobwith the challenges and I am sooo proud to have you on our team. 
Please be sure to click their names and go visit their blogs and leave a little love!! 

Thank you for stopping by. 

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!!!!
