Sewing and Masculine

Do these two things go together? They do in my card for the Sensational Stitching challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow . As many of you know, I don't sew, not even on cards so I had to do some creative stitching for this, I reverted back to my cross stitching days and then did a little hand stitching on the "Vintage Balloon" image by SCH. There is some embossed stitching on the bottom of my card from a Cuttlebug border embossing folder. I think the argyle is kind of a masculine look, also. Stop by and play along if you can at Sugar Creek, Tracy is also having a contest where you can help her name a new image and win a digi from the shop. Hope your day has been super ... I went to lunch today with my old gang from my previous job and it was so good to see everyone. Happy Day, all!
