Freshly Made Sketches #233

Seems I just needed that day with a crafty friend to give my mojo a little kick in the craft!

For Freshly Made Sketches #233 and Amy's cool sketch:
 
The first person who guesses the source of my
button material, gets the card!!!
 
MFT's Stitched with Love stamps, and dies.
Avery Elle Neutral Collection 6x6 pad and a snippet of wood veneer paper.
 
Yes.  I think I've captured the essence ... a stitch - just in time!

This is awesome! Love the neutral colors and the way you used the stitch stamp! I definitely need to look up those stamps!

Oh, and the button is from a Outback gift card.

Christy Q said...

lovely card and fantastic take on the sketch! My thought was that the button was from an Outback Steakhouse coaster.

Nora N. said...

This is fantastic!! I LOVE how you flipped the sketch onto its side. The colors are perfection and way to go with that button!!

Lisa said...

This is as charming as can be Michele!! Love the placement of everything. My guess is Outback along with Christy ;)

Karren said...

So cute and clever!

So glad to hear you had a fun-filled, crafty day, which resulted in yet another gorgeous card, Michele! Just a stab in the dark, but my guess is Donna over at 'three umbrellas' gave you these lovely "sewing notions" (chose the easiest clue - MFT products). LOL

Kathy said...

Love the various neutrals on your card! I also love sewing, so this one really made me smile. I was also going to mention a steakhouse item, but I thought maybe a menu piece. Really like reading your posts, Michele.

LeAnne said...

SO cool....I love anything stitched! Such a thoughtful get-well card (I need a few of these myself!). My guess would be Outback coaster too...but I am late to the party!

Tracey McNeely said...

Welcome back mojo! Awesome card, I love the stitched theme and love how you turned the sketch!

Bobby said...

Kick in the craft. That made me chuckle. Now why didn't I know you had that set when I was there. It's perfect for the sewer in me. Oh, yes, the card. So, so perfect in every way, Michele.

Jen Mitchell said...

What a great card! I love that button. I don't know where it came from but the others seem convinced that it's from something from Outback Steakhouse. Nice way to upcycle!!

Looks awesome...I've never been to that restaurant that everyone is quoting...it definitely isn't a starbucks coffee sleeve :)

Judy Woodland said...

LOVE your take on the sketch, just perfect. Love the theme to, really, really cute!! And I haven't got a clue how you made that button...lol.

Anita in France said...

Oh dear, my nicely worded comment disappeared into the ether, Michele ... I'll try again! So gorgeous ... love those neutrals, they put me in mind of cool linen and crisp cotton! A kick in the craft ... tee hee ... so happy you and Bobby had fun ... and got creative! Hugs, Anita :)

Happy Dance said...

Perfect get well card. Perfect colors. Perfect elements. Yep. Perfect card all around. And since I'm so late, I won't hazard a guess, just echo everyone else's choice. LOVE that spool. And you're gonna have to spill all about your playdate with Bobby soon. I think we're all itching to hear what you did! Bev

Barb Ghig said...

I'm so glad you had a fun day with Bobby! This is such a fabulous take on the sketch, Michele! I love how you play with color, too...this neutral color palette is so striking, and perfect with your sewing notions :)

Oh, this is just soooooo cute, Michele and the neautral colours you have worked with are lovely!!! Whatever you used for your button - it worked perfectly to make a very sweet embellishment!!!!! Love the stitches on the 'mend'!!!!!

Catching up on some much over due comments on your blog Michele. Somehow I don't always get to comments on the folks I'd really like to visit with DT stuff but today I'm making time for your brilliant cards. Love this super crisp and CAS design and such beautiful neutral elements. Sarah x

You've stitched up a most marvelous card, guaranteed to 'mend' whatever someone needs mending! For me: a spirit boost (in *meh* land of late...). Super sweet, wonderfully clever!
