You will just have to take my word for it that I have both made and seen some really sweet cards this week. (that is until I can locate my doohickey and upload the photos. We had card night this week and the cards were all awesome. Everyone has their own style of stamping and I for one love to make other's cards because they are usually ideas I would not have on my own. So it is another way of getting my "repertoire" of cards increased.
I have also been sewing this past week. At church we are having a sewing class once a week for a month to help us get back into sewing and to learn new techniques, etc. I am starting with curtains for my bedroom. I am recycling some cloth that is discontinued swatches from a home decorating store. I sewed them together like patchwork and am sewing tabs at the top for the rod to slip through. It is very expensive tapistry-type fabric and will be wonderful in my bedroom when finished.
I also created a cute little baby outfit out of a onesie. I put 2 ruffled lengths like a skirt at the bottom of the onsie as well as a ribbon band along the waistline. then I made a cute ribbon rose for the shoulder. It is for my new granddaughter Penelope. She is granddaughter #3 born to son #2 and wife a few weeks ago. We are going to meet Penelope and see son #2 get two master's degrees mid May in Illinois. Looking forward to that.
I also recycled some interesting textured wallpaper that looks like bamboo placemats for some cards this past week. They came out exactly how I wanted them to. I used the single stamp " Blossom " and some colors I don't use very often - Cajun Craze and Wild Wasabi. Hopefully I can post the photos soon.
Have a great weekend and if your weather is warm and full of springtime, get out and enjoy it. I sure will here in Texas.
Inky fingers to y'all.
