Hello friends! I hope you are all well. I know the blog has been quiet. Two weeks ago, I actually worked some overtime. And last week, we took a family vacation. I have been busy in the craftroom working on decorations and favors for my kiddos birthday party that will take place in 2 weeks. I have also had some tests done for the palpitations that I have been experiencing. I have my stress test on Monday, and I will be following up with the cardiologist in 2 weeks to go over everything.
So now that you are caught up on what's happening with little ole' me, I have a card to share with you. I cleared away the yards of felt off my desk to create a sweet little baby shower card for a friend of mine. I combined a few challenges to create my card and matching tag. I used the current challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch! and the current and last challenge for 2014 over at CAS-ual Fridays.
I inked up Lawn Fawn Plus One and did some paper piecing. This stamp set is dear to me since I used my winnings from my first challenge win over at CAS-ual Fridays to buy it. I also used it for my first guest design spot at well. I used Stitched Borders from Pretty Pink Posh along with some 6mm and 4mm clear sequins. I used clear sequins to mimic raindrops. And lastly, I added some Lawn Fawn twine for my bow. So if you haven't figured it out, I am playing along with the far right column: sequins, emboss and twine.
That is all I have to share for now. It's back to my sewing machine and felt. I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
I hope you get some good news from the Cardiologist. That is scary!! I love your card. I like the fun way you did curve on the side and stamped that adorable umbrella on patterned paper. Fabulous take on the challenges. Have fun with your projects!!

Hey Deb! OOOh, your take on the card is a very creative one. I would have never thought to use a die to create the pattern down one side of the card stock and the fact that is curved is genius. I love your umbrella and twine. Nicely done.ReplyDelete
