Wait for it...

This is one of those cards that I didn't LOVE at first, but something about it is growing on me!  Inspired by the  Moxie Fab The I'm Sew Excited! Challenge!, I made this to tuck into my card stash (got the perfect person, who will have to wait;)  
This one was a lot of fun to make!  I love, love, love the Lawn Fawn needle and sewing machine.   {They stamp like a dream}   I didn't have a ruler stamp, so I just cut a strip and wrote in the lines with a fine tip Sharpie.   
And how can you not like a little tomato and strawberry (btw, tomato and strawberry, who thought of that?).  I used my small flower punch and circle punch to make the tomato.  Too much fun!

P.S. I just wanted to post what came with my recent Lawn Fawn order.  An actual handwritten note and a bonus stamp!  Well, Mike, wherever you are dude, big ups to you and Lawn Fawn!  You definitely made a fan out of me!  Thanks!  {aloha, jj}

  1. The tomato & strawberry are so awesome! (And seriously, who DID think of that? I mean, why not large & small of the same fruit? Or, I don't know, anything that makes more sense?lol)
    I absolutely love how you incorporated so many sewing icons into the letters...fabulous!!
