Sunday, March 3


Well, it is amazing to me, but I actually am participating EARLY in some challenges today!!  I usually have great INTENTIONS of participating and either don't get to it in time, or come in under the wire!! ( I am SURE that never happens to you, right?!)

The PAPER PLAYERS CHALLENGE for this week is SEWING.  Something to do with sewing.  That's pretty broad and easy, right?

Here is what I came up with:

 A spool of thread, buttons and scissors.  How much more SEWING can you get, huh?  I free handed the spool shaped card and then embossed at the top and bottom so it would look like wood.  I traced my little snips and cut those out of card stock and attached with an antique brad.

I LOVED this stamp set when it came out and it was gone way too fast for me!! I put some bakers twine on my spool, which is almost empty because THAT ALWAYS HAPPENS TO ME WHEN I AM SEWING!!  And added fun designer brads on the button card to look like buttons.

Hope you enjoyed my interpretation of the PAPER PLAYERS CHALLENGE this week.  Won't you leave me a comment?
