JUG77.SFYTT.Mom's Day

Hi Girlies, Well, I did it. I had a goal to make a zipper flower and I did it!!!!! A small feat for some but not for a obsessive perfectionist like myself :). Overall, it came out good and I like the card too! Just sneaking under the wire for the SFYTT for March. I mainly made this for the Just Us Girls Challenge this week. I changed my mind on the paper choice a million times. And I change my mind 2 million times on the sentiment.
I needed it to be for a special occasion because it's so pretty and I settled on Mother's Day. Stay warm if you are from the East Coast!

Hi all, I made a baby card for a few challenges to have on hand. I had a lot of fun making this, who doesn't like pastels and cute baby colors. The photo doesn't capture how pretty the colors are. I have been wanting to use this button paper for a baby card since I bought it over a year ago. I'm lovin my new PTI linen
thread that I used to thread th button. I used a Taylored Expression Sketch, 1st time, and the current City Craft Challenge. I'll have another card tomorrow to share. Kim :)

Here's a little birthday card for my stash using a Pink Cat Studio image and a mojo Monday sketch. The papers are a combination of My Mind's Eye and Echo Park. The warm colors fit the Phindy's challenge this week. Gotta make this a quick post. Thanks for looking! Kim

Hi all, I wanted to have a sympathy/get well card in my stash so I made this card. I've had the stamped and colored image sitting around for months ago. I also had the paper picked out and sitting on my craft table. When I saw Mona's cr84fn20 challenge, the colors were perfect. And I used mojo182 for the sketch. I enjoyed using the seam binding. Believe it or not, I bought it 6 months ago and didn't use it. I decided that I didn't care for it when it was super wrinkled. So I ironed it and now I'm in love! It ties so nice without alot of bulk. Have a great week.
