CR84FN 37

I am finally back to share a card I made for this weeks color combo at CR84FN.   I think I finally got my tension worked out on my sewing machine.  Don't ya think it looks a lot better?  I sure do.  I can't begin to tell you how frustrating it was having it mess up on me every time I did a straight stitch.


Again, I used my new pretty My Minds Eye paper from the Lost and Found Collection.  Do you see that cute little house?  That is one of my neglected PTI stamps.  I have had it for months and never used it.  Sad isn't it?



I also played along with this weeks sketch at Mojo Monday.



Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Rustic Cream, Ocean Tides, Kraft
DP: My Minds Eye/Lost and Found
Inks: PTI/Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Memento: Rich Cocoa
Ribbon&Twine: PTI Rustic White, Fine Linen
Border Punch: EkSucess
Border Die: PTI/Banner Border Dies
Machine Stitching

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

My sewing machine and I haven't been on speaking terms for over a year now, stupid tension! I am happy you and yours have a much better relationship {wink}. This card is gorgeous Heather, love it!

Heather, I am just happy every time I come here and see what you've posted. You have a way with colors and patterns! Thank you so much for the sweet comments on our Alfred's passing. He was a good little pug who we will miss so much. Every time this happens, I say I can't do it again...but I don't know what my days would be like without a little doggy to love on.

Sweet card. The die with the house and the kraft pops and draws the eye. Beautiful design.

I know what you mean about neglected stamps, Heather. I tell my husband all the time, "See? Other people have the same sickness I have!" LOL

I do love those papers you picked out, especially the damask one. I love the combo of punches/die cuts, too.

I am so glad I caught your cards on Splitcoast, you do such lovely work.

This is GORGEOUS Heather!!! I love what you've done with this stamp set! You really need to use it more :) Easier said than done, huh? :)
Once we're set up in our new place, I'm going to try to make it a mission to use my neglected stamp sets. If I find I can't use them, I think I'll get rid of 'em.
