If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.

Today we are featuring the "Sew What?" stamp set:
For this month's Blog Hop, I decided not to make any standard-sized cards.  I used the "Sew What?" stamp set to make this sewing tin.  This is such a wonderful sewing-themed set!  I used a recycled mint container for the tin.  I embossed and masked the spool and thimble.  I used a blue embossing powder for the words.  I completed the tin by doing faux stitching around the edges and adding a decorative plastic needle on the front.  This little tin would be perfect for keeping a few needles, buttons, and small spools of thread close and handy.
