Thanks Sew Much!

Back from a long weekend away.  It was very refreshing to go somewhere where the pace is slower, we had heaps of fun camping in the rain, and thunder storms! But when the rain cleared and it warmed up a bit we had fun quadbiking and a relaxing time reading!
Last week a friend of mine loaned me her sewing machine when mine threw a 'wobbly'.  Sew today's card (couldn't help the pun!) is to say thanks to her for digging me out of a hole!  And as she is a fantastic quilter I decided to quilt her card! It seems my sewing machine is able to sew zigzag competently it just doesn't like doing blanket stitch at the mo! (Can't wait for my other machine to arrive back after it's service!).
Here is is.

I've used the sketch from CPS, and am also submitting it for the Pink Elephant Challenge to use Red, scallops and a bow.  I took inspiration from the Friends with Flair card over at Untiy drawing on the gingham and scallops. And I'll also be submitting it to Cas-tastic as they are asking for buttons!

Here are some close ups:

Have a fab day! I am off to clean my house as I have a rental house inspection tomorrow! And then a school fete on Saturday that I have a stall at, busy busy busy!!
