sew blessed...

it's not a typo.

it's the cheesiest pun ever.  I live for this stuff.  My hubby recently asked me why I gravitate towards the cornier stamp-sayings... it's inexplicable, really.  All I know is that pun on the page = smile on this gal's face.

I missed a few episodes of PTI's MIM, but I thought I'd catch this one under the wire.  The challenge is to selectively ink up only part of a stamp.  I didn't have any stamps that read: sew blessed to call you friend (and why is that?  why would you offer a sewing set without including a few winners like that line? hee) so I made my own.  The s-e-w is from PTI's simple alphabet set, and the "blessed to call you friend" normally has a regular s-o in front of it.  After inking up the set, I used my finger (most people use a baby wipe, but I was too lazy to walk across the room...) to wipe off the s-o from the sentiment.  And thereby, a new, punnier sentiment is born.

In other news, the rest of the stamps are SU.  I stamped the dress-forms in versamark ink and stamped and cut out the measuring tape and the spool.  I wrapped some embroidery floss around the spool to give it some interest.  A little pin stuck through there finished it off... don't let your kids touch this card... the embroidery floss looks touchably soft, but that pin... let's just say I didn't blunt the sharp edge.


Hope your weekend is all blue skies and sunshine!
