Happy Friday guys! I had some extra time to craft today because work was cut short because of the weather. We had a nice little snow storm today but nothing too crazy, Texans just aren’t too fond of snow.
First, I wanted to say I am VERY excited because I won my first card challenge! My card You’re Awesome! won the Paper Smooches SPARKS February Anything Goes Challenge! Click on the badge below to see the blog post (if you haven’t clicked on my pin or FB post, hey, I ‘m excited!)
Second, I made a Facebook page for The Lovely Pear. If you get a second, click on my link and give my page a like (it’s a work in progress)!
I finished up a card I started last night. I LOVE LOVE LOVE two step/three step stamping! Delightful Dahlia is my favorite stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I used to look at this and think, how do they do that? The end product is just beautiful!
I finally used my new sewing machine, and like I told my husband, I know the line is crooked, it gives my card character! (My husband and son are my harshest critics!) Yes, I did mess up a little on that but I actually really messed up on the velum paper. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on it and you could hardly read the small print because the letters melted together so I ended up adding the matching paper over it.
I found some awesome corrugated cards by Recollections at Michael’s Craft Store and that is what I used as my card base.
Well guys, that is it for now, my next post will be my Top 5 Products for the Month meaning we are done with February!
