Sweet Threads is sooooo SWEET!

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Creme

I printed out this precious image, "Holiday Mail" from A Day for Daisies the other day and was just waiting for the right moment to make something with it. I had the new paper collection from Basic Grey arrive last week, Sweet Threads, and oh my gosh, I think I am in love! but I say that all the time about my beloved Basic Grey don't I?! ;) one of the challenges I ran across the other day was for shaped cards, so I thought I would give that a go as well......

Trims are from a variety of places, May Arts, Recollections, and 'not so sure'. grins! the flowers on the image & pink wellies were painted with shimmerz. I covered the little pale yellow rose in it, too for some fun! seam tape is Martha Stewart that was tea stained.

Summer Camp Staff Training begins this weekend, so I will lose my entire family for the rest of the summer. I have enjoyed these few weeks of having everyone home sooooooooooooooo much! it will be strange to just have me, the dogs, & cats for the summer. hope to gets LOTS of crafting done as well as catch up on a bunch of chick flicks! they aren't allowed in the house when the guys are home! suggestions are more than welcome!

Have a great evening and I will see you in another day or so! :)

Fabulous card my dear friend. I love the shape and all the wonderful fibres you have added. I wonder how long a drive it is from Toronto to where you are because I would come and keep you company for a few days - I love chick flicks.

Thanks for joining us at Sugar Creek Hollow.
