Thursday--Today!

Is quiet. Yipee, I've been organizing papers (catching up on White Collar) this morning--now I'm tired. What's up with that?! :) Must be a sign of old age....So lately I've been playing with my stash I made these two cards the other day:
Do you notice the sparkle on the butterfly AND the heart? Yummy isn't it? It's chalkboard mist (strawberry shortcake & Apricot)

**One fun little thing that I haven't done before is to sew on chipboard. I don't know the easiest way as this was my first time. But I sewed the acrylic flower on the front while the chipboard was still a little wet from the mist. It went through nicely.**

All the supplies used are Fancy Pants. I couldn't believe I hadn't used those rubons or punch outs. Funny how supplies come to life when they are "new" again. The embossed paper is SO old I'm talking like 8 years. I thought it was SO pretty I didn't want to use it. You can't tell from the pictures very well, but I did lightly mist on the background as well. Such a simple pretty touch.

Well, my break is over! I have to continue on my organization so I can PLAY this afternoon with my paper! Thanks for stopping by!
