Thank You Creative Inspirations + Challenges

This is a first for me, REAL STITCHING!!! my hubby heard me talking to my daughter about the possibility of me buying a small sewing machine and hey presto it arrived a few days later. He is such a sweetheart. So after a little practice here is the result. It's not great, but with more practice I'm sure to get better. This is my Dt card for this weeks challenge over at
Creative Inspirations. The theme is THANK YOU, it can be anything you want, a card, wall hanging, decorated box, gift etc. so long as the thank you theme is present.
