I'm Back

Whoo hoo! After a week long sewing marathon, I can play with paper again ;-). I did get 'a skate dress a day' (yes, you read that correctly- one skate dress each day-except for one day, but I made up for it) done last week, I sewed 'two' skate dresses on the last day. And, I got the black velvet one done too! As much as I enjoyed sewing skate dresses, I missed my paper and ink. I did, however, take a tiny break in the middle of the week to make a card :-D, but just today have the time to get it posted. Soooo, here it is.........

Check out that new embossing folder- isn't it cool? It looks like textured fabric to me. That new Textured Impressions embossing folder is called 'Square Lattice' and it's in the Summer Mini that starts on May 1st. I also used the Two Step Bird punch that is available in the current Occasions Mini that ends on April 30th. If you look at the daisy, you can see that I used the bird wings for the leaves behind the flower. Ya' gotta love punches- most of them have more than one use :-). The sentiment is stamped three times. I always stamp in the middle first and then align my stamp to the right or the left with my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get equal distance on either side.

My daughter likes this card and it will most likely end up in her card stash. She collects the cards that I make that she loves and adds them to a card stash she started a couple of years ago. All right then, I am going to head to my crafting room and pull out some pretty paper to play with ;-). See ya' tomorrow! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Very, Very pretty, I love it. It is so "springy". Are you going to let us see your skate dresses?
