Well there wasn't much 'I Love You *Sew* Much' about my card this week - all I can say is - RUBBISH!!!
My sewing machine had a hissy-fit and started things up -  it chewed up three images and few sheets of papers. I stripped it down put it back together but it still doesn't work properly.
I persevered put with in vain so I surrendered and used a image I had already coloured - the flower and pearl are hiding to image chewed.
I did manage one row of row of stitches although they are not right . I used plain paper (rather than lose more patterned paper) and embossed it. I used a Sizzix TH folder on the outer side and the inner one I use a  Martha Stewart Scoreboard on the other - if I'd use a folder I had a feeling the stitches would have fallen apart. I should have used my stitched by hand but I was being bloody minded - that is my Yorkshire  heritage - a bit like a Yorkshire Terrier!!!
The image is 'A Carrot Between Friends' and coloured with Copics 

Has anyone found my missing Mojo yet ??? Perhaps it was chewed up with my sewing machine !!!

It's a wonderful card. Silly question but have you tried changing your needle. When I had that happen it was the needle. :)

Heather, you crack me up! I probably would have given up and drew them by hand. I have walked away from the sewing machine many times in frustration...but your card turned out wonderful. The image is so cute, colored beautifully and with all that embossed white it just pops.

It was only as I read about your trouble that I noticed the wonky stitching....... I just thought that the white was such a good foil for the coloured image: it's certainly come out a treat. Talking of treats - he's certainly having one isn't he?
