Day Dreaming

I am in Chestertown, Maryland this week visiting a lovely crafting friend, Ann English and we have been playing in her well-appointed craft room.  We have also made some day trips - one to Winterthur, which is a du Pont home and gardens - fabulous.  The other trip was to some craft stores and then out for a super dinner.  I had wanted try crab cakes while I was here and got my wish - yummy.

We have played with my Gelli plate and while we need more practice, we did have fun.  Then she let me use her supplies and I made this card for the current challenge at Sassy Cheryl's, which calls for STITCHING.  I have never used a sewing machine to do my stitching so this was a first and it is certainly easier than hand stitching as I usually do.

The image is called Better Than a Thousand Words and can be found here.  The papers are all from My Mind's Eye and the card stock is all from Ann's stash as are the ribbon and the brads.  I also used a Martha Stewart lace edge punch and the flowers were made using a Martha Stewart punch and a McGill Craftivity punch.  The leaves were made with a Punch Bunch punch.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenge:
