Fabric flowers


I used a fabric covered button on this one. I think I like the plain yellow button more.







I made this out of 4 inch squares of fabric left over from a seamstress who made wedding dresses. I went to their garage sale and the seamstress had long since passed and the daughter who was about 70+ was selling off things. I picked up a whole box of ends of pretty wedding dress material! I don't recall what I paid but it must have been very little.

Summer in Paris Cartridge




Wow the craft store finally got it in! We had dinenr at the happy Panda next door and got ot go look before we ate to see if they had it yet. My DH offered to let me get the other limited edition cartridges but I wasn't very intersted in them. I can't wait to make the 3-d furniture!




so Design studio broke on my laptop?!?( 2nd time ) so I called provocraft on friday morning. They had me reinstall it completely and it worked??!! but meanwhile the lady asked me if I had registered my cartridges b/c if I didn't register them they couldn't help me if I had a problem. LOL I believed them and yesterday afternoon got out all my cartridges and started registering them. it took forever! but the good news is I found lots of rewards points I hadn't put on my account yet!!

Where is the Sun!


My girls and David on Easter Sunday. Lil is very upset that I made her put on the dress for pictures. She didn't smile the entire 10 mins. she was wearing the dress.


This week has just flown by, between softball, art classes, science classes and dr appointments we have not been home a night this week. Looking forward to the girls going to grandma's house this weekend so we can relax. Sunday is our one year anniversary :)

I have some awesome things to post and lots of projects and other things. my dining room/ photo studio is a tad to dark to take pictures in at night, I managed to blow out 2 light bulbs at the same time in the chandlier in addition to the one out already and now it is really like eating by candle light lol

Softball team is Red thank goodness since I had most of the supplies for red on hand. I have been stitching like mad tying to get the ribbons done in time for opening night (Friday Night). We didn't know what color the team was until Wednesday night! The hardest part is done now so I just have assembling them left.

Pamper Yourself Card

Here is the card I made for part of the team challenge this week at The Greeting Farm. I will post a link when our team card is selected and posted so you all can vote for us!

It is interesting the lighting differences. the top photo is in my light box in a mostly dark room, I didn't think that was showing the true colors so I used a lamp in the living room for the second photo and it didn't turn out as well. Guess I should take my pictures earlier in the day.

I used Luxe paper, and Neenah paper
Copics
atyou spicas
oval nestabilities and scallops oval nestabilities
pop dots
yarn fringe thread
rain drops from pink hedgehogpapercrafts
