Sew Cute!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  It's Friday and while we all love the weekend being here it's sorta sad as school is back on Monday!  I have enjoyed every moment of the Christmas Holiday with my kids!  Ariel is in full time school and Carter is in preschool (every Tuesday, every second Thursday) Last night they had a sleepover with there cousins at my inlaws!  Teasing Ariel I told her I wanted to keep her home as I love her so much and she said "Yeah but I have so much fun there!"  LOL  When we dropped them off we went skating on the lake in my inlaws backyard!  A truly Canadian thing to do!  Chad and I enjoyed our day together!

I do have some amazing crafty good news to share!  CARDS magazine asked me to be there Designer of the Month for November 2013!!!  This was a dream/goal of mine!  They asked me on the 1st so what a way to start the new year!  

Today I have a card to share that features the new stamp set Sew Perfect along with Carta Bella's Paris Girl paper!  I am having fun with this set!



I think one of the reasons I love this set so much is because my mom is a taylor!  I made a fun tape measure!  I have a lot of tape measures as my mom is constantly giving them to me!  LOL  What I did was stamp the tape measure over and over in a line on both sides than I rolled it!  I love the look that it gives!  I also took some seam binding (I had to use seam binding instead of ribbon for a sewing card!) and died it with some Tattered Angels pink poodle mist!  :>

I am entering this card into this weeks Simon Says Stamps challenge as it's Something New and I used new stuff on this card!

Well I am off to enjoy pizza and some family time tonight!

Congratulations on your great news.
What a awesome card. I love the idea of the measuring tape and the bias tape. I love how what you do is so well thought through.
When I saw your title, I thought maybe you had taken up sewing, too. I'm sure you would excel at it.
