365 Cards Day 55/56

Day 55 - On Pins and Needles.
Incorporate a decorative pin/s and use a needle to stitch on your card. I used a sewing notion of some kind for my pin (I have no idea what it's meant for but it's been lurking in my sewing box for years and it's cute!) and I emboidered the flower stem for my silk daisy. I also used an embroidered ribbon to finish the card.


Day 56 - Super Sketchy Sunday
Sunday already? Yep! And for once I'm doing Sunday's card actually ON Sunday. I used some bits and pieces from my diecut box, and a recycled picture from an old art book.

I like your needles and pins card and the happy colors you use on your cards. Mine tend to be on the dark side-I'm trying to fix that.
You asked about my hands- about a month ago I fell while taking glasses to the sink and severed a nerve in my left thumb and 2 tendons in my right index finger. I had surgery and the scars are almost healed but I still can't use them very well. I now have an appreciation for those who lose th use of body parts. Thanks for asking.
