My First Stitched Card

Just a quick post to show my first machine stitched card.... I made this card a few weeks ago at Becky's... She allowed me to play with her sewing machine... now I know this may not seem like a big deal to most people..... friends share their stash right?!... but when I explain to you that the last time I tried to use a sewing machine I nearly stitched my finger to the machine... I think you might start to understand!

It frightened the living daylights out of me, so much power in such a little machine... I haven't been near another sewing machine in 4 years! Of course it was the machine and not operator error you understand!!!

So I had strict supervision with Becky and thankfully I still have all my fingers, not bad for the first attempt...I had a good teacher!!! Now can I be trusted with my own machine is the question?! Will Paul come back from Footie finding me stitched to the machine?! hmmmm I think I might need more practice before I make a decision!

The flower stamp is from a Stampin Up retired set that I can't remember what it's called but I know I need to add it to my growing collection with the Stampin Up definitions stamp set which is also on the birthday list!!
