Oh What Fun We Had!!



Well yesterday was my big day and like I said, I had a few of my crafting friends over to celebrate in full crafting style. We had so many laughs and I bought all of the girls lots of fun goodies to take home. In the picture is me and Jodi (kharmagirl) and seated is Jodi, Debbie and Lily. Loreen from Wish on a Scrap was here also but left before I remembered to whip out the camera. What a great way to celebrate a birthday. THANKS GIRLS!!


So onto some business. I made this card for this weeks challenge over at Paper Pretties. We had to use this particular stamp called Howdy Girlfriend, (isn't she adorable) and we had to use eyelets on our card. I don't know if you can see them but I put an eyelet on every other scallop in my oval and then I tied linen thread in each eyelet to kind of represent either tassel or a lasso. Both work with this image!! I think it came out pretty cute. I dont work with eyelets very often so this was a fun challenge. My cardstock is all SU. My paper piecing was done with paper from Washington Apple and Ski Slope. I also embossed with the paisley folder.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day.
