Hand-stitched with Love!

Happy Monday, Fresh Squeezed friends! It's Virginia here!  As Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect to share a card that I made for a special someone.

The design is really simple.  I chose the handwritten heart from When Hearts Collide and did some stitching.  Can't sew or no sewing machine?  No problem! The easiest way to do this type of stitching is to pierce the holes with a paper-piercer first - a thumbtack will also work!  Then you can hand-stitch the holes. 

You can incorporate any colors to your design.  I chose red to accentuate the design. Hand-stitching is ideal for adding interest and textures to a simple design.  It's well worth the effort, don't you think?!

Hope you get inspired and try some hand-stitching if you haven't already. Thanks for stopping by!  -Virginia
