I love to sew on cards! I decided to do a word...and yes, I did write it in pencil first and no, I didn't do it all in one continuous stitch. I had to stop and start once in the middle. I didn't want the "o" to have more than one loop. I used another of my new Mary Engelbreit stamps and a new Cheery Lynn die-Ivy Corner Flourish.

Love this. You took a color palette I would have thought would be garish - yellow, green and orange - and completely changed my mind about it. Love the stitching, love the way the focal image pops against the floral heart, and love the diecuts in the one corner. Just completely sweet and charming!

Totally ADORABLE, Polly! Love the charm of your design with the cute ME image and your stitching......which is VERY well done! The heart and flowery vine all say "warm and cozy cottage style". LOVE it!(Hit the heart button)

Reminiscent of an old fashioned sampler, Polly! Wonderfully cheerful colors and layout, and your machine sewing if fantastic! Home is where the heart is, and you have certainly put your heart into this beauty!
