Hand Crafted ... with love!


{Sigh} ... this little sweetie pie just makes me smile!  Can you believe that the girlie on the kraft cardstock is a rub-on ... I KNOW!  Too cute!!!  I usually don't enjoy playing with rub-ons ... they seem to come off the backing crooked for me, but this little girlie cooperated and she's very sweet!

I embellished the little sewing themed card with Ambrosia Cantalope Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop, an adorable chipboard pair of scissors from Maya Road, a teeny clothes pin, some twine, sweet little tags, a punched heart, rusty little safety pin and a pretty little corduory button!


The papers are Stampin' Up!, October Afternoon and Papertrey Ink!

I managed to play along with a couple of my favie challenge blogs for this card, but it was especially inspired by Mona's lovely color board of inspiration at CR84FN and the JUGS girlies sketch this week - yummy!

Thanks for peeking ... have a wonderful, stampy day :)

Challenges for this card:

JUGS #74 - sketch
There She Goes Stamps #97 - kraft cardstock
