Just a Stitch in Time

My amazing mother just turned 70. I wanted a card for her that said 70 but wasn't silly or reminding her that she is "over the hill" so I went looking for something that might work.
My mom has been sewing my whole life (longer). She made me so many clothes and my sister's prom dresses.  She also is the person who makes my daughter's Halloween costumes every year no matter how specific my daughter gets about things and if no pattern exists. A sewing theme card seemed right.
After doing a print and cut frame, I found a good matching pattern to add to my 70 and added a few touches to make the card stand out. I especially like the stitching idea on the number.
We had a simple but wonderful brunch with a small group of family and friends and pushed my Mom into her 70's with lots of joy.
