Sunny Days

Wednesday, January 4, 2012


Hi Friends! I'm back with another card for my notecard set. I really like this one. I'm using the same colors from the CR84FN45 Color Challenge, and this time I'm also using the Mojo Monday sketch challenge #222 for the layout.





I put just a little Crystal Stickles on the flower. In the photo, it looks a bit like dirt, but in person it's nice and sparkly. :)


I forget about using the sewing machine on my cards sometimes, but since I've been teaching my 7-year old how to use her new machine, it's been on my mind and I did quite a bit of stitching on this little card. I just have to be careful and not get too caught up in sewing or before you know it, I'll be wanting to go out and buy fabric instead of stamps and paper! :) I tend to be a craft junkie! My favs, through the years have been cardmaking, bookmaking, knitting, sewing, counted thread embroidery, cross stitch, crochet, quilting, and beadweaving.

What about you? Do you have just one craft you love, or does anything the slightest bit crafty make your li'l ole heart go pitter patter just a little faster?

Thanks for visiting today! Have a crafty one!

~Hugs,

Oh, this is amazing!!! LOVE all that stitching--it's a fabulous touch to a wonderful card! I really love the dry embossing on the pennant and that small yellow flower is a superb touch. :) Can you tell I LOVE this?!

I like this one - the stitching is fab, particularly like the yellow on the blue! This is going to be a fab note set. Thanks for playing along with CR84FN!
