Mamma's Sewing

Good morning all!
It's Thursday & it's time for my DT card for 

The image I have used today is called
This is one of the recent releases & I thought I was just  perfect
 for Mother's Day!

Here's a closer look at the image!
As you can see I added some stitching around the image!
Don't laugh, at my sewing, it's an old sewing machine that I was given &
 I'm still trying to figure out how it works!

Not sure where the DP is from, it's been in my stash  forever,
I think I must have got it in a candy giveaway.
I added some little fish tails & buttons as well as a little 
lace double bow onto which I sewed a button!
The buttons & lace have also been in my stash forever!

A little side view of my card just for completeness!
The font I have used for the entiment is 1942 Report
Thanks for popping in!

  1. Dawn, this is so wonderful ! It does take me back to my childhood, though, when I learned to sew on a machine almost that old; not quite, it was electric powered with a foot treadle instead of being hand cranked, but it was definitely an antique, even then. Love your papers and buttons, and I think the stitching is fab!

  2. Hi dawn oohh this is so pretty I love your image and the stitching! The bows look so pretty too! Gorgeous!
