Happy Monday


Happy Monday everyone, for most of us that's back to work, I don't mind though, my house is a disaster from the weekend. The kids had tons of friends over and they forgot the part where they were supposed to pick up after. Plus I have at least 5 articles of clothing that belong to various kids that I need to track down. So I'm slowly trying to catch up on things around here. I loved the sketch at Friday sketchers so much that I thought I'd try another. I used an old Sugar Nellie stamp that's been neglected since I'm hooked on digi. See that beautiful big antique button, another one of Gramma's stash, it must be really old. I wanted to remove the green ribbon as it didn't fit after I coloured the image, but too late, I stiched it on duh!

This is so lovely, the colours are gorgeous and that image is so sweet. I wish I was brave enough to use my sewing machine, I've had it months and never used it on a card! Your stitching looks fab. Lisa x

I love this!!! The image is gorgeous, I want to go on a Sugar Nellie spend but keep holding back, seeing your card is sorta making me wanna do it though, lol. You've coloured her wonderfully and I love those papers and the sewing!! Her little feet dangling out from the shape is the perfect touch!!
Take Care,
Stephanne

Wow, Lori, I am so glad you are doing a blog candy give away at the moment or I may never have stumbled across your amazing blog. I have been browsing around in here for ages now. Your cards are AMAZING! I will definitely be putting you in my blog roll on my side bar so I can come back again.
