A Delightful Waste of Time


 
Posted by Picasa
Hello! It is Friday, Yea!!! It has been one of those weeks that you want to hurry up and get over with. Looking forward to the weekend. I was blog surfing one day and came across this new blog. Well, new to me "A Delightful Wste of Time". She is celebrating her 2nd blogaversiary. She has some challenges going on. She is awarding badges and as a final grand prize she is giving a Waltzingmouse stamp of your choice. So why not give it a try. You have until Sunday night to play along. I decided to do the sketch challenge. I seem to be in need of a boost of creativity and thought this might do it. My CS stock is from SU! I am sorry but mixed some of my papers up and don;t remember the colors. The PP is some I had in my stash. That is another area I need to fix. I seem to hoard my paper because I don't want to cut it up. I stitched around each panel with my mini sewing machine. I used PTI's Limitless Labels and Round and Round Limited Stamp set for my focal image. I used cream wrinkle ribbon and made a dowble bow for more fullness. I actually painted the bird with some frosted ink, but am not quite sure if I like how it came out.
Hope you have a wonderful day and weekend,
Liz

Great job!!! Love the doily, the colors, the double bow...
I should probably just go get me a mini sewing machine. I seem to have bad luck with regular ones.

Liz, thank you so much for joining my birthday celebration! I just love this card - I have used that floral paper myself on a few projects, it's just so pretty. I am a TOTAL paper hoarder! I have finally convinced myself that either a) I can buy another sheet of the same if I am quick enough or b) it makes room for something new I see if I use older stuff up! Your card is beautiful, and I am so grateful that you joined in! Thank you so much!

Pretty, Liz! That paper is fantastic and I love the seam binding. I really should actually try and USE my Janome and see if I can sew on a card. The look is always so neat.

Liz, the combo of prints is the perfect backdrop to the leaf & bird images. I especially love the fluffy bow at the bottom.
