I am on a roll, YEAH!

2 posts 2 days in a row, and 3 in the last 4 days! I am on a roll. I have to take advantage and jump on these opportunities when I can, because I always have such a fun time and plus, you never know with my schedule if I am going to have another free night soon. Although I think that I should for the next few days, at least. The kids were off from school for a snow day (it really wasn't snowy, imo - they should have been in school!) and I only went in for a shorter day. Even home before dinner - which was wonderful.

So, one more Elzybells card, which I made tonight (I tend to use the same stamps over a period of time, it seems...) - this one was for both the sketch and color challenge this week on SCS. I went back to this fresh flower cart. There is so much you can do with this image and for so many occasions. This one is a thank you card. I used stickles for the daisy's petals - sparkly! :) And I even sewed on this one (but obviously my sewing needs serious work!) I really don't know how to do corners - I kept getting stuck as to how to turn the panel to keep going, while maintaining a straight line and not ripping the paper to shreds all at the same time. I really should dig up the "how to sew" book I bought ages ago with the sewing machine, when I was deluded enough to think I was going to learn how to sew and make fun and funky things...seriously - what was I thinking?

K- off to bed. Nite.

Another cute card!!!! Look at you go! To make a clean corner stop sewing when you get to the corner - lift your presser foot, turn the paper 90 degrees, put down the presser foot, start sewing again. Repeat at each corner. Make sense? I sewed for many many years on fabric - so I know a few tricks - LOL!
