Whipped this up Just for YOU!

So listen here. I made this for a friend. I had it all colored and pretty and started to put it together then I grabbed the sentiment, slapped it onto a block. I glanced to see if it was straight...then I stamped. Well...as you can see I didn't stamp it too well because the darn thing is crooked!  Makes me so mad.  Now, that wouldnt' be soooooo bad if I was sending this to a friend who lets say, doesn't stamp or scrapbook. But, NO, this was for a friend who does these things. So...now I have this card and I have a dilemma. Do I make another card or do I send it??? hrmm... Well normally I would totally make another card, but time is getting away from me and I don't see much time coming up with a vacation looming over me soon.  I may have to go into my stash and see if there are any other "stamping friend" worthy cards!!!

So here is another card that I kinda, sorta swiped the idea from my friend, Wendy!  I liked how she put a black and white stamped image on the inside of the card. So I had to do the same thing.  The rest was all me though hehe

The image is from My Favorite Things and she is colored with copics.  I believe these papers are from My Minds Eye as well.  I sewed all around the edges....good thing I got it all done because my next card after I had done this one, but stinkin' sewing machine broke!  Well, I can be fixed, I am waiting on my mother to come look at it. Don't know what I did to it, but the needle broke in half. lol  My mother thinks possibly my little girl may have played with the tension on it. I haven't a clue...I just use it for cards and the very occasional quilt. Which was put on hold because of this mishap!

Anywho, thats all for today. Have a great one!

Such a sweet card! This design is wonderful for using up scrap pieces. I'll have to scraplift your layout because I have tons of scraps that have accumulated and my scrap boxes are about to overflow.

This is just so adorable. Love the layers behind the image and that stitching makes it perfect. What a great idea to complete the look of the card by using the same image in black and white on the inside. Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back sunday for a new challenge. Bettina xx
