Thoughtful thinking

Hi there!

Yes, I did change the blog look again, but I'm pretty sure this ones a keeper...at least for a few months. ;)

Anyways, Simply Scrapping Crafts first Card Corner challenge is up, and the the challenge is to make a card using a frame - easy peasy with some Spellbinders dies.
Whipped this card up awhile ago, when the sewing machine was broken, so I had to all those little holes without a guide...nothin' but a little pin. ;)

And some pretty roses I got at Michaels...

Instructions: Trim and score card base. Cut yellow patterned paper out and faux stitch near borders with pin. Cut out blue patterned paper and brown cardstock using Nestabilities dies, and adhere blue paper on top of brown. Place image behind die cuts using foam squares. Adhere to base. Stamp sentiment and cut out, than adhere to die cuts. Add half pearls and flowers.

My sister would like to thank you all for the sweet comments yesterday, and I'm to let you know she will be adding some toys to the Etsy shop sometime soon, but I don't know when exactly. :)

Thanks for stopping in and enjoy your weekend!
