A stitch in time...

...saves something or other...LOL! Can't remember the saying, rofl.

Well, I decided I had better post a card here! I have another eye infection, same thing, in the tear duct. This time my whole eye is swollen. I am really getting tired of having these lately. It makes my vision blurry which of course makes it hard to see a bit, lol. I am to put drops in my eyes daily now to moisturize them. Dang, when you get old you have to moisturize EVERYthing, haha! Ok, here is the card:



Back when I first started making cards, YEARS ago, before I even knew of bloggers and Gina K, lol, I used to hand stitch on my cards I made alll the time. I tried to find one of my Christmas cards I did years ago to show you, but couldnt find it anywheres. Maybe I'll come across one when I decided to purge my other closet, lol. I used that daisy again on this card and this was for the CAS challenge at SCS last week, a color challenge...to use kraft, pink and one other color. The stitching is punched using a Bazzill Stitch Template that I picked up my LSS, then I just used plain white embroidery floss to do the stitching. Easy! I really like how this card turned out too, and will be a good mailing card!

Thats all for today! I hope everyone is having a relaxed Sunday! It's so humid and hot here, and threatening to rain. I am suppose to have Blake, wildchild, here in a bit and was thinking about taking him to the park...but I dont know...I hate to sweat, lol. I am sooo not a summer person, give me fall time any ole day!

Beautiful card Cat! Did you use 3 strands of embroidery thread? I can't tell. Sorry about your eye, hope the moisturizing drops do the trick for you.
