It’s the little things….

2012 July 27

Happy Friday guys! 

Here in Kansas we’ve had a cool down to a lovely 97° – break out the sweatshirts.  Sadly we did not get much rain with this cold front and the temps are expected to climb back into triple digits by Sunday.  And I say once again…. C’mon Fall!

I have another quick card to share with you guys.  When I made my frame last weekend, I stamped out the sentiment several times and thought it would go great on a card.

I followed SC393 from Splitcoast Stampers:


Getting better with following sketches!  And since I had the embossing powders out, I embossed the sentiment.  Once again, had to use one of the zippered flowers I made.

I still am not very happy with using embossing powders.  I use the anti-static pouch and swipe it over my card before stamping with ink and sprinkling with embossing powder.  Still I get stray embossing powder particles.  Drives me CRAZY!  You think it’s because the embossing powder is a couple of years old?  Regardless, I like the card – stray embossing particles and all.

Finished Abby’s birthday present this past weekend:


I’m not sure if she’ll get it next week for her 2nd birthday or if I’ll hold on to it until Christmas.  Not like she could wear it any time soon with the type of weather we have.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

    I love your card.  I missed when you were making zipper flowers.  Do you make them from what is available in the scrapbooking and craft world or do you use regular zippers?  Just wondering if it makes a difference.  I also love the crocheted dress.  I remember when I used to knit and crochet.  Every once in awhile I do get the urge to do it again.  It is truly easier to take along than scrap supplies.

    Great take on the sketch (and I have the same issues with ep…of course, my ep is several years old too!!)
    Love the little dress!  Crocheting is not a skill I ever learned!
