Ok, I'm being silly, but June 3rd is National Repeat Day and for the commemoration, I have made a "Thank you" card that let's say "thank you  just keeps repeating itself.

Since my first love is sewing - National Sewing Machine Day was purrfect for me as I'm an old sew-n-sew!!!!!

  • Sewing machine was cut at 4-inches from Country Life Cricut Cartridge
  • Background paper is from DCWV Crafter's Stack cut at 6-inches 
  • Tape measure at the bottom is a Hero stamp and colored with my Prism colored pencils
  • Mat is cut from ivory cardstock using Elegant Edges cut at 5-1/2 inches
  • Spool buttons are from my stash
  • Tape Measure ribbon is from Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts
  • Black pearls are used for the nobs on the drawers of the sewing machine cabinet
  • All the pieces were cut from scraps
