MCT December Release Blog Hop


HELLO and welcome to the My Creative Time Release Blog Hop! You should have gotten here from Veronica's blog. If not, please start HERE at the My Creative Time blog to join in all of the fun! 

I am very excited to be hopping along with these uber talented ladies this month! 

SO many of you know that I recently got a sewing/embroidery machine. I digitized (with the help of my handsome husband Hans) My Creative Time dies and then imported them into my embroidery machine. The result - a festive hand towel to use in the kitchen for the loving season (which should be all year round!!)! 

Anyway, I hope you like my projects and I am looking forward to doing this MUCH more in the future! You'll also see embroidery on cards as well! 



This is what the hand towel looks like on my oven - perfect!



I couldn't stop there, so I made this quick koala shaped card as well! 

And because I have gotten some requests to see my mini-valentine:
