Once again I've been a bad blogger because we were off on an adventure. This time it was the Czech Republic. Fun, fun, fun!

Anyway, I'm back and we'll be home for a bit so I should be able to get the mojo going again. I really hope it comes back fast.

Anyway, today I have a little something to offer. It's a simple little card I made to submit to My Time Made Easy. It was a failed attempt, but here's the card none the less.

Though I've been meaning to try it, this is the first card I have ever sewed on. I did both machine and hand stitching. The patterned paper was inked and distressed around the edges prior to sewing. I like the simplicity of the card and plan on sending it to a friend for Thanksgiving.
