Me stitching...

Hello, hello.... how's your day?  Yes, me stitching....Smiley from millan.netTotally went crazy, I'm not good at sewing at all, even using the sew-easy tool was a challenge!  But then, I got a tool a while back, I decided to give it a try.  I even use twine for the stitch, OMG!!!  Okay okay, I wanted to play along the Greeting Farm Farm Fresh Friday and the theme is to use any type of stitching (machine, hand, faux...).  So, I did it!  I finally hand sew a card.

Goodies that I used:
The Greeting Farm Glimmer Bean
Penny Black music background stamp
Forever Friends For You paper pad
Maya Road trinket heart pins
Stardust pens and stickles
Tulle and tulle flower from Lily Bee

Hello and happy Wednesday!   I was inspired by my dear friend Catherine's post the other day.  She created a beautiful card for the Cupcake Craft Challenge, the challenge theme is "Best of British".  My mom and I both love England very much.  So, when I saw the Penny Black Love London clear stamp set, of course, I have to pick it up.

Onto the card, I used the map background stamp from Hero Arts/Studio Callico.  And the layout is from the Penny Black PB&J Monday.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Softpencil Tuesdays!

Hello and happy Tuesday!  It's time again for Softpencil Tuesday!  I just can't get enough of the super adorable stickers.  They are too cute and so easy to use.  Since spring is in the air...  Gardening came to my mind, or though I'm not a gardener.  I still love everything related to flowers.  I adore this set, it's called Garden of Friends

Here is my quick and super fun project using these stickers, it was inspired by this cute little green bucket which I picked up at Target for just $1.  Wooo.... how about mini envelope for seeds?  I used the Tim Holtz Alteration pocket envelope die, then stamped a friendship background, punched out a scallop circle, distressed the edges, then added the desired stickers.  Viola!!!  Simple, right?!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
