ur sew chic...

Happy Thursday!

I was able to take most of yesterday morning off from work...it's not very often that I get to drop off my boy at school...although he wasn't too fond of the idea that I still had my jammies on! Thank Goodness for the pony tail hair-do and big sunglasses...LOL.

Oh how I love Jenni Bowlin goodness...seems that I like to always paper piece that fabbie dress form ala Lawn Fawn in JB too!

I've been seriously diggin' the Whimsy Haven Journal Card...it's soo versatile!

Here's a close up:

You gotta love bling!

♥♥RAK Alert♥♥


Seriously, is there anything better than Happy Mail??!!! Personally, I don't think sooooo...especially when a beauty like this one is waiting for me in my bill-filled mail box:)

I couldn't be more thrilled with receiving an Alice Wertz original! Her coloring skills always have me in awe but good grief, it is something else, up close and personal! I love my card Alice, it definitely brightened my day!

I'm feelin' very lucky as I have another RAK to share with you tomorrow..it came from the other side of the pond:) Thanks so much for stoppin' by...I hope that you'll join me tomorrow...I have my card for the Wee Memories challenge ala Jenny...go check out the challenge!
