Sew many projects....-

sew little time!

Seems I go from nothing to do and bored, to "when am I going to fit all this in?!"  But now that the Summer is in full swing here in Arizona, there's nothing to do outside but watch the catcus sweat in the heat!

I was recently "gifted" some luscious little Doodlebug kits, and am in the process of putting some projects together.
Here's my little card I want to send to a friend who really needs to go on a shopping spree with me. 
The stamping on the paper doily was easy and fun! I simply cut out a circle that fit inside the center of the doily, and used that to mask the outside.  Since these are somewhat "waxy", they also tend to not take the ink very well. So after stamping my image, I clear heat-embossed it to insure it doesn't smear. It made the image shine a bit and has the appearance of magazine print. 
What a fun and simple little card. It was made much easier by the fact that the kit came with so many cute embellies and pretty paper.  There will be more projects coming out of those kits, for sure!

This adorable card will be entered in challenges at:
Sassy Lil' Sketches (Sketch challenge , August Week 3)
Fab n Funky (Stitch'in time)
StampsRus Challenge (Anything Goes)
