March PTI Blog Hop
For the March Blog Hop over at Papertrey Ink we are challenged to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on a project. This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up! Something completely foreign to me! The only reason I even have floss is because MFW had a challenge a few months back~so now I have a second chance to use it :o)
Here is the site to check out all the fabulous talent:

This is the card I made when we got home from my husband's treatment #3. The card is for a dear friend who is in the hospital enduring all kinds of tests. The inside sentiment says "It may seem up hill now~but we know you will have a speedy trip to good health soon!"My card~ click on the image to see more details. I will most likely tweak the heck out of this before it goes in the mail, just don't have the time right now.
