You have me in stitches

So,when is the last time you have laughed so hard
you thought your gut was going to bust?
It has been ages for me...that is not to say  I haven't had 
a good therapeutic release here and there.

Oh well I guess I'll have to give my card stitches instead. 
Here is a pretty CAS Thank you card:
(click for sharper image)

I thought it would be different to add more emphasis around the 
sentiment with the stitching. I didn't like how the seams started and ended 
so to clean it up a bit I added the bitty brads.
Well today we are off to school exams and then hitting the pool.
Have a wonderful day!

i was all ready to read a hilarious story! So sorry you haven't had a gut-buster laugh recently.
Back to the card--Love it. Super job with the stitching. I don't think my old machine will go thru layers like that. Neat idea to add the brads. I’m glad you joined us for the Do You Stack Up? SEW challenge & hope to see your creativity here again!
