I’m finally getting to cut into my newest pad of Basic Grey paper.  Max and Whiskers.  It’s adorable and you NEED it.

I desperately wanted to machine stitch on my card but I broke my purple Pixie a couple of days ago (I think I tried to use thread that was too thick…the bobbin case came out of it’s race (that rhymes!) and I can’t figure out how to make it work again.  Disappointingly, Singer never did reply to my email asking if they could send me a diagram of how it should be placed.  My next sewing machine will NOT be a Singer even though I thought the Pixie was a great little machine for the money)

Anyway, I’m trying to move on from the loss of the world’s ugliest sewing machine but managed to sneak in a little of the sewing theme using a cuttlebug embossing folder along the bottom of my card.  Take a peek:

I love cards that use bits and pieces of patterned paper.  It’s a great way to use scraps.  Unfortunately I cut into 4 fresh pieces of paper to make this little guy.  But still…

Speaking of paper scraps, I’m going to be doing another “Happy Mail” giveaway as soon as I get my room tidied up.  Lots of new product kicking around so if you’re interested in some scraps, keep an eye out for my post!
