It's a blue day...



I've been eyeing this paper for a while now so I used a coupon and snagged it up... I actually got to sew on a card today!! I was looking in my Cards magazine from January 2007 and it had a nice card in it so I "lifted" it but I tell you, mine looks NOTHING like the other card. Take a look... (it's to the left.)
Then.. for my next one, I used a new crown that's coming out soon along with the new Ribbons stamp set that came out Jan 1. It's kinda fun.. Quite simple but I think the patterned paper may be a little much..

Now for the real shabang gody of all gody cards... The main background paper is flocked.. the dark paper is debossed with metallic words and on top of that, I've stamped paisleys and added a ton of mini copper brads! What was I thinking?? :)



Stamps used: all Queen Kat Designs: Fancy Paisley, Ribbons, Crown

I LOVE sewing on my cards. I just wish it wasn't always such a pain...take out the bobbin, change the thread colour, rethread the whole machine, repeat for contrasting colour....arg.
It's worth it in the end though...great cards Vicki!

Hi, Vicki! Oh wow, you've been busy making stuff! =)

I love all of your cards. I always get such inspiration from them. =)

Great idea on binding your Cards magazines. How cool is that that you can now open them to a page and they won't close on you.

Hey, do you have the Crop a Dile Big Bite yet?? Sigh, still waiting for when it'll hit Philippine shores. My friend who owns a store here says she's seeing May! *waaaah*
