sew cool!



Can you believe that it is Thursday already????!!!!!

Sheesh, I'm trying to change from vaca to regular mode...but I'm drowning in laundry and a messy house with suitcases all over the place...I did manage to make 2 cards last night though. Here is my 365 Cards design.

Pam's Challenge:

Mixed Messages

Incorporate THREE ways to create a sentiment to make one big sentiment.

Mix and Match things like stamped, alpha stickers, handwritten, computer generated, transfers, etc.

I used metal, glitter alpha and tiny alpha stickers...I'm being a rebel {Oh Gloria!!} and justifying that the glitter alpha is definitely different than the tiny alpha sticker...you gals okay with that? Oh Kaydo you recognize that oh-so-gorgeous satin ribbon??!!! Yuppers....it's the goods you so kindly RAK'd me....Thanks my dear!!!!!!

I decided to multi-task and use October Afternoon's Challenge of using their products and a pun and I used Sketch Girl SG3. I've been out of the creative loop for a week and craving challenges!! For those that have been following me, I have a hard time combining 2 challenges and check it out...I managed 3 {patting myself on my back!}. Good Grief, I don't know how some of you gals manage to do 9...I think I've seen 12 before {shaking my head}, that's craziness.

Okay, you know the way this works....show me what you got! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!! That Pam certainly has us on our creative tippy toes, doesn't she??
