Made By My Hubby!

My sweet aunt gave me a brand new sewing machine awhile back & I finally cleared off enough space to "set it up". Only 1 problem I don't know the first thing about sewing especially with a machine. So I took it out of the box & set it on the desk & it sat there for days. I took a look at the manual & my brain started to ooze out of my ears. I really don't like to read boring complicated directions. So as usual after awhile I hand hubby the directions & ask him to figure it out then show me how to do it. Of course he figures it out in like 5 minutes & starts sewing! And he enjoyed it! He even asked for more things to sew & he went to Joann's to get more fabric! What?! He hates to go to those places. Anyway I cut some felt with the Big Shot & the Scallop Square Die & he made this! I made the flower with fabric & the Flower Layers #3 die.
Aww so cute. Thanks Hunny!

Stencil Challenge

This month Shelli's blog challenge is using stencils! I wanted to try the paper roses that are all the rage right now & they are super pretty but really bulky. I thought it would be best to use it on a 3-d item of some kind. I have had these SU gable boxes for years, package still unopened, I am currently getting shock treatments for my hoarding problem. LOL! Anyway I love the way it came out! Now if I can bring myself to actually giving it away thats a whole different story.....

Thanks for stopping by!

Smiles & Blessings,

More Watercolor Wash Cards

I was excited to finally get this hostess set. It's so pretty!

This card is so not my usual style but I was playing with the technique & this background reminded me of a trip my hubby & I took to an art gallery featuring some stuff by Salvador Dali. I thought some of his art was really crazy, filled with all kinds of random things, so anyway I made this card for hubby. Love how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by today!
