card~a~licious 24 AND 365 cards day 139





happy friday :) this is for a challenge over at cardalicious the theme being a baby card using stitching and ribbon. and the theme over at 365 cards is paper piecing. so since i just used circles for the flowers this one qualifies for that :) for my take i fashioned some flowers by using my cricut and george cartridge . i just cut circles took an edge distresser to them added some colorbox fluid chalk pretty crocheted blooms handmade by leah my dt leader over at paperblooms i also added itty bitty buttons. i also used jasmine cartridge for the corners and wild card cartrdige for the baby blessings. i added some prima flowers (blue and cream) and kaiserkraft pearls and a tiny bit of ribbon and some lace. the crocheted butterflies are also made by leah arent they just the most precious!!! ( a link to paperblooms and leahs etsy shop are in my side bar) for the background the image is on i took a piece of cardboard tore off the top layer to reveal the corrugated part, i inked it up a bit. a big thanks to my friend kathy for reminding me of this technique :) i did a bit of handstitching and the precious sentimet is making memories words defined. i think thats it:) thanks for reading all the jibber jabber :) and thanks for stopping by my blog to take a look and leave a comment :) have a great weekend! shelly

365 cards.. a MUST read for my entry.

lol ok im a huge huge dork who can really read.. most of the time! its been pointed out to me.. thanks rose! im sure you got quite a laugh out of me as you already know im close to the biggest dork on the planet :).. so... 365 card challenge was NOT paper piecing but in fact paper piercing! duh! no wonder they showcased paper piercing on the sample card lol. well, in my own self defense and quite a lot of crafty thought.....i did paper pierce the holes where i HANDSTITCHED, yes i HANDSTITCHED this puppy...shouldnt that count? i think so :)
