Fabulous Friday

Wow - it's Friday and I actually got to play along with another challenge.  This time I followed the challenge from All That Scraps Wednesday challenge - which was to sew on your card.  My machine still isn't working, so I hand-stitched this one.  I am so pleased with how this turned out.

The adorable image is from the Spring Pixie kit from All That Scraps.  It's funny, I have two boys but I rarely do any boy cards.  This image just happened to fit exactly what I started out to do.  Let me tell you about my little journey.

I found a blog called Penny Duncan Creations.  If you haven't visited her, YOU MUST!  This woman is amazing with her digital creations.  She has SVGs, digi-images, tutorials.  Anyway, I found her blog and was enthralled  by her projects.  I downloaded some of her free SVG files and immediately set out to make a card.  I started with her SVG cut which is the lacy mat beneath the Pixie image.  Then I cut a rectangle to fit inside the mat.  That just happened to be the perfect size for the stamp.  Well, I originally cut the green mat as a test... it just happened to match the colors of some new buttons I picked up from the $1 bin at Michaels.  I love when things just fall into place to create an adorable card!

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Mellow Moss, Brocade Blue
Copics:  E00, E02, Y15, Y17, B95, B97, G99, YG95, E29, E37, E57, B000

Tools:  needle, thread, SCAL/Cricut, SVG by Penny Duncan, paper piercing mat pack

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'm glad you came.
