Thank you very much

Hello, Hello!

I hope wherever you are you're having drier weather than I am! It's been raining for the past 5 days here in Ohio yuk!! I'm so done with it :( It does give me lots of time for crafting but I would like to actually go out of the house every once in a while and enjoy myself! Anywho . . .

I'm playing along with Wee Memories Get Sticky challenge.

Although I have totes upon totes of stickers I rarely use them in my card designs. So I foraged through the totes and found these super cute journal spots (Me & My Big Ideas, Rachel). You'll have to forgive the photo the spot is actually a blue (think broken china) metallic and it did NOT photograph well.

Once I picked my sticker I moved on to paper. I created a standard sized card out of white card stock. I cut the floral paper (My Mind's Eye, Tickled Pink) a 1/4 in smaller and inked the edges with broken china. I sewed around the edges with white embroidery floss (dmc) then adhered it flat. I almost always sew first because I don't like the inside of my card to look messy. I added the journaling spot slightly off center.

I stamped the flower (Hero Arts, Flower Blossom) on pink floral (My Mind's Eye, Tickled Pink) and on the green polka dot (Making Memories, Just Chillin'). I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the journaling spot.

For the sentiment (Hero Arts, All Occasion Messages) I cut a banner and inked the edges with broken china. I added a button to my flower center to complete.

As always I so appreciate when you stop by :)
