Sew Happy you're here (and a giveaway!)

Hello friends and happy Thursday to you!
As you can see from my post title, I am excited that you came by today as I have something new and fun to show you.

This is a fun little set that I drew up: a spool of thread, 5 sentiments, and a stitched heart that you can use for different occasions.
I've made a couple of samples last night, first up a card inspired by Mercy's sketch:

I paper pieced the heart and added the little button over the drawn one. Here is a closeup of the image and sentiment that says "I'm Sew in love with you" (heehee! I had to make that sentiment as my poor DH has been running around town trying to find me the mini Janome since Christmas - lol!):


These cards also tie in nicely with the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: Valentine or Love
Crafty Card Makers: What's New? (this image I just made! :D)
Sew Many Challenges: Anything Goes! (as long as it's a digi)
Corrosive: Let's Go Digi!
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Lots of layering

And here is another card that I made with this image:

I used a much hoarded BG paper pack for this card as I wanted it to be fun and playful. Here is the inside of the card:

 Have you ever had an awesome SCS hostess that you wanted to acknowledge? Here's a great sentiment that is perfect for a return swap, letting her know how awesome her hostessing skills are. Oh my word, I can think of a dozen ladies over at SCS that I would love to thank! There's even another sentiment included that says Thread Sisters - that one's for all the friendships you've made over the years on SCS.
So here's the giveaway part - leave a comment here with a name of someone you've become close with on SCS. I will run all the numbers through, the lucky winner as well as her SCS friend will both win this set! Yes, it is that easy. :D
Since this is an impromptu giveaway, it will end tomorrow morning at 8am EST so I can announce it on my Friday blog posting. Now if you aren't on SCS, leave a name of a fellow blogger that you've become friends with instead!
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone, may your day be full of happy surprises!
*Love and Aloha*

Very sweet, and I can't choose one person and if you stop by the dork sisters thread you will see why. What an awesome group of ladies and I am very lucky to have found them on SCS.

Joni, what a great set. I love those sentiments. I'm not on SCS, but could name a few people I have met and formed friendships with through blogging. One that I have met that has really inspired me is Vicki Parsons.

Melissa Craig said...

What a beautiful set - and a lovely idea. It is quite incredible the friendships that can blossom through our hobby. To choose just one blogging friend might be difficult - but I nominate my fellow card making pal Tanya Rudd - she is sweet and very talented.

Then there's Katie, and RAchel, Michelle, Sue, Joan, JoAnna and Jen...oh my...even though I've never met any of them I still count them all as friends :) Better not choose me or I'll make you give the prize to all of them 8-O
