I made this super simple card for 2 challenges today over at SCS.  The first challenge TLC514 challenged us to make a standard size card with 1 ink color, 1 large bold stamp and a sentiment and 1 ribbon of same color tied along the edge.   I also submitted the card in the CAS305 challenge to welcome the New Year.  I really like the look of cherry cobbler ink on crumbcake cardstock.

Pinkeep January 2015

I have joined a monthly Pinkeep Kit Club where I will receive the supplies to make a Pinkeep - just another name for a pincushion.  The club is from Primitive Gatherings - a quilt shop in Wisconsin that I would love to visit some day.  Here is the 1st pinkeep I made for January.  I added the machine stitching at the bottom.  They used a button that had a "J" on it and a black bow but I like the machine embroidery better.  I filled it with crushed walnut shells- they are supposed to keep your needles sharp.  This is a great way to display my hat pins.
