fashion

Hello!

I'm a smidge later than I usually post...We had a super busy day yesterday and I didn't get any crafty time.  I decided to start today with this card...get it posted and then work on the remaining cards for the week...I do a majority of my design work on the weekends.

Hambly Screenprints...if you aren't familiar with their papers, you are missing out.  Today's card uses Grandma's Wallpaper...the colors are delish and since they have a glorious sheen to them, they are a challenge to photog:



This is one of those "a little bit of this...a little bit of that" kind of cards:)



My card incorporates some of the colors in the trigger.  Did you notice the orange stitching I did?  It is a vintage spool of thread priced at a whooping $0.15!  

I was also inspired by the Moxie Fab World, The I'm Sew Excited Challenge.  I used the Hero Arts Sew Artsy dress form image {Ellen Hutson is currently having a 20% off sale on all their in-stock stamps!}...paper pieced it with some fun Jenni Bowlin paper that highlights the word Fashion.

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far...This was part of my breakfast this morning:



There is something about having pretty coffee...dontcha just love that heart?

Okay, off to craft...
