Whimsy Stamps - Party Snail

I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand, especially cards that can be given to boys. I thought this image would be perfect.



As you can see, I tried my hand at real sewing on a card again. I think it is a lot better than my first card but I still need more practice. Since I can't draw a straight line or put two pieces of paper together straight, I don't why I though I would be able to sew straight. That just adds character, right? Also, thank you to every one that gave me tips & tricks. My thread did not break once while sewing on this card.

Have a great day!

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.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
