Sew the sun

Hello everyone,

When I lose my craft mojo, I hop on to Instagram for some inspiration! Like for this card. On the Take time out challenges page, I saw a card with sewing. And wondered why I didn't try this yet? I must admit that last time I sew something was..a long time ago, almost 17 yrs back - for a project at school! And then there was today ;)

Inspired by few blogs, I made this card. Did some handlettering as I didn't have a sentiment to match my card.


'If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely'  

I loved this quote at Time out challenges.
I will handletter this inside. 



And I am glad I can do sewing without any pricks!

Hope you like it :)
