Sew Happy!

I'm sew happy with the way this card worked out! I think my mojo is back!

I am not much of a sewer (translate that to sewing on a button is pushing the limit of my skills) but I love all the sewing themed cards that I have seen on the blogs and forums lately. Of course I am partial to Sew Pretty from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.

I used the buttons from Sew Pretty to decorate the inside of the card too. (Sorry, I just noticed a little bit of the pop dot sticking out. I don't have time to retake the photo but I did fix it up.)

Updated 5-21-10: I am so excited. My card got a mention for the Just Us Girls color challenge!

Please take a moment to see what the rest of the DT is up to.

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
