Friday Mashup # 145

The challenge I choose for today is
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with "Sketch."
  2. Create a project using some "Sponging"
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Sponging using the Sketch."
so here is my try at the layout
I know it is hard to see but I did do some sewing on this card
my SIL has been encouraging me to give sewing a try
I did try sponging the heart
Paper used Harmonie
the heart and arrow are a silhouette cut
you can pick them up at my SIL Barb's blog.
She shares lots of need things
 The reason I am slow on trying sewing on cards
is my sewing machine
It was given to me so I need to learn all about it
The sewing machine from the 60's
my Bare found the manual online and printed it out for me.
so I guess I can start to learn all about it
