This is a card of firsts for me! First time to ever sew with a sewing machine on paper, and the first time to use a wheel stamp. I've had my sewing machine in my studio for months now, but was too intimidated to actually use it until I read Julia Stainton's tutorial (located on her blog, Belle Papier at http://bellepapier.blogs.splitcoasts...aper-tutorial). Thanks to Julia's fantastic directions, you'll probably see lots of machine stitching all over my stuff (at least for a week or two until I'm on to the next new-to-me thing!). The jumbo wheel stamp -- well, I thought this clothes line was just the cutest thing in the catalog, and I still do. Love that bunny hanging by his ear.
The image is colored in with Prismas & Gamsol, and the fab dp is by Daisy D's. The hearts are Heidi Grace Fasteners. The sentiment is from the Petals & Paisleys set. Do let me know if you are personally able to find joy in laundry. If I could figure out how to do that, I would be one happy-go-lucky lady!

That is a GREAT card! I agree that that wheel is WAY cute! I've also been perplexed by that "find joy" stamp. while I love the idea of it....I personally feel like I can't send it on a card for fear the recipient would think I'm calling her petty or ungrateful. LOL!
However, you have found the PERFECT way to use it! I LOVE IT!!!!
And yes...when I was washing cute little baby clothes, I found joy in it all the time. Now that they items are large and sweaty, not so fun! LOL! :) (3 active boys, ages 10, 12, and 13)
Thanks for sharing your card!

This is far to cute for words. I have always loved that wheel as well and keep putting off buying it. But NOW that I see your awesome card I have an idea for a 'name frame' of sorts for the laundry room???? Beautiful... thank you so much for sharing. And ya know... I NEVER noticed that bunny... oh my gosh... how terribly adorable!!! Consider it CASED and favorited!
