FMS 81

Good morning, Friends! Wellll... It snowed last night! About four inches!! Ugh! Yes, we need the moisture and that's what I have to keep telling myself. But it is so cold and it is supposed to be colder tonight. I didn't want to get out from under the blankets. Nick's track meet went great yesterday even though it was cold and wet! Thankfully, it didn't downpour or anything like that. And Nick did great! He had some great competition this time and rose to the occasion! And it is just fun to watch all these kids! As for today, I do hope to accomplish some stamping and then have some leisure time for sewing. I haven't done that in a while and am anxious to get something done!!

Today's card was inspired by last week's sketch at Freshly Made. I made this card for a swap I was in for this month. I stamped the sentiment from Thoughts and Prayers in black StazOn on a piece of Very Vanilla and added two silver brads. This panel is adhered to a card base of Very Vanilla. Then I took a piece of Naturals Composition specialty designer paper and adhered it to a piece of Basic Black that was punched along the bottom with the scallop trim punch. I tied a piece of Very Vanilla seam binding around this and popped the panel up onto the card. I punched a circle from Very Vanilla with the 2 1/2" circle punch and stamped the tree image in black StazOn. I sponged the edges in Crumb Cake and popped the circle up onto the card. I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit to cut some butterflies from Calypso Coral. I used the smallest butterfly and adhered it to the card and added a tiny pearl. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
