Your Sew Sweet!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  Happy New Year!  Best Wishes for an amazing 2013!  Hope you had a wonderful New Year's Eve!  I am truly blessed with parents who happily cancelled there plans (dinner out) and wanted to babysit there grandkids! We enjoyed a kid free New Years at a good friend's party with a bunch of our friends!  It was great!

Today I have a card to share using a new (well I think I got it in November finally inked it) stamp set by Hero Arts (for Basic Grey) Sew Perfect!  I've always wanted a sewing themed set and was quite excited when I saw this one!  I paired it up with some paper from Bella Carta's Paris Girl that the lovely Donna sent me!

I really enjoyed making this card and am actually still playing with this set so I will probably have more to share!

Big thank you to the wonderful comments left on this post , many of them brought tears to my eyes, the winner of a prize is:

I got breathless just reading your post!! Surprises like that are always the best, aren't they?!!! Too funny about your shock at seeing your photo as a winner....and I'm sure that's something you'll remember for a long time. Congrats to you...you deserve it!

I also am working at adding some new wreaths to my shop and one of them is a new all felt flower wreath.  My most popular non holiday wreath colors feature teal, yellow, greys and white.  So I decided to make a wreath with all felt flowers in those colors:


You can find it here in my shop!

Well I am off to wash the floor (kids slept over at my parents so no little feet to mess that up) and take a nap!  We got to bed quite late last night and a kid free house means a peaceful nap!  :>

Such a cool card, Anita! You worked the papers and images perfectly like I knew you would! And your wreaths are so awesome--this one is especially dazzling!
