Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 3



My Sew What sample uses the spool, button, and sentiment images from this great set. Perfect for anyone, especially the seamstress. I used to sew a lot before I discovered stamping and became obsessed with that :) The cardstock base is MFP Florida Peach, the paper is retired SU Raspberry Tart, embellished with a real tape measure that I no longer used.
