Go-To Girl Maren's Sketch and I SEWED!

I got a Janome...YAY!

Here's a pic of the beauty, taken with my cell phone...sorry for the darkness!

Only took me an hour of watching videos and asking my Facebook friends to get it set up!

Then after a few practice runs on scrap paper I decided to try out Maren's Go-To Sketch on a real, live card!
Yay, me!

Here's the card:

Stamps: Inside and Out.

Making this card, I think I did make a mistake. I used the smallest zig-zag stitch and that was too small, you can barely see it. And I went too close to the edge of the paper and it almost tore it in a few places where the stitch is so far on the edge of the paper...BUT it was FUN and that's really all that matters, right?

I can't wait to get home tonight to play some more!

Have a great day!
