I set aside some crafting time today to finish up a few cards I've been hoping to submit for challenges. This one I created for two challenges!.
The folks at House-Mouse and Friends have offered up a great challenge with HMFMC #161
The challenge was to use a stamp that has not been used before! I only
have a few stamps that qualified and this sweet little Hopper "Seed
Shooter" was the one I picked to use for the challenge.
selected a background paper for my 5 x 5" square card that looks like a
table cloth. I cut all the way around the edges of both the
"tablecloth" and the "napkin" and then sewed the trim on the sewing
machine with a really close stitch : ) I also traced a very light and
thin line from a glitter pen to accent the stitching. So my sweet little
Hopper finally makes it's debut!
For the design of my card I used sketch # 329 from MoJo Monday.
I thought this simple sketch would allow me to get that simple "down
home" look I was after for my card. Yet again! the Mojo Monday folks to
the resuce!! : )
be sure to check out these two wonderful blogs and while you are there I
hope you will "blurf" around a bit to see some of the creations others
have made in answer to these two challenges. If you do please leave
some blog love!! we all love that blog love! : )
Hope you are having a great night!
