Put Your Sunglasses On!

This is a very bright and cheery card for this week's Stampin' 411 Challenge!  Due to looking at all the gorgeous stitching on Maureen's cards, I decided it was time for me to change the thread in my sewing machine from white to a color...so look out for some fun red stitching.  Yes, I am very lazy and rarely change the thread.  In fact, I rarely change the settings on my sewing machine, so last week when the stitching was all garbled I abandoned it for several days.  Then, when I finally looked again, I realized that it had been moved to the button whole setting.  I think some little fingers got to the machine :)

Hope you like today's card!  Happy hump day!

  1. Hmmm, the little fingers at my house are fascinated with my sewing machine, I have to hide it in different places.... Love the brightness of your card and kudos to you for trying something different.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I love it! I will have to change my thread color, too!
    Little fingers have lost my 1/8" Scor-tape and messed with one of my Xyrons... No matter what kind of security we have, something always manages to get mucked with! ;)

  10. wowza!! Pass the sunglasses! If this can't cheer you up, go back to bed!! LOL What a fun, fun card and thanks for the shout out!! Stitching is so fun to add and in different colours!! I must admit I don't like to change mine either, but the results are worth it in the end....the new studio will have a sewing area, so hopefully that will make it easier :) You can tell me when you see it in person ;)
