Happy Birthday Stitch

Hello eveyone.  Hope your day was a good one.  Mine was just horrible.  I only got about two hours of sleep last night so you can imagine I was pretty much a zombie.  I was miserable.  I thought my work day would never end!  Funny how I'm feeling much better now that I've been home awhile!  hahahaha

I made this card last night during the hours I couldn't sleep, then finished it up tonight when I got home.  It's for my really great friend, Kathy.  She has soooo many talents, but one of her most prominent is sewing.  She is a master!!  When I saw this Sugar Nellie stamp named Stitch (Leanne Ellis), I just had to get her and make Kathy a card.  Even her hair reminded me of Kathy!  : )

Do ya like that 'pile' of buttons I tried to create?  Kinda goofy, huh?  Well... it's something a little different.  But hey... wouldn't a top notch sewer have a bunch of buttons lying around?

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for my layout.  I wanted the image to be the main focus, so this sketch worked out perfectly.  Thanks so much Mojo gals!!!  I'll also enter this into Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge.  This is her first ever and it's fun to be part of it.  Her challenge is to 'think Birthday'.  She is kindly allowing those of us who haven't yet gotten any of her wonderful new stamps to enter anyway.  I'm really hoping I'll win one!!  The One Stop Craft Challenge also has a 'Happy Birthday' theme so this is a two birds... one stone kind of thing.  : )

And thank you for visiting.  I really does mean so much that you come and take a look around.  That's pretty much why we're all doing this, right?  Have a great evening!  I'm going to bed... soon.
