Love Sew Much

Hello! Good Monday mornin' to you!

It's been since Thursday since I've hopped on me ole blog with a project share! I managed to make a card between then and now, but I didn't like it and didn't want to take up your time with it! I like the one I created last night, however...


I was in a shabby chic vintage mood and created this hybrid card with a Two Peas in a Bucket digital kit called 'Doodley-Doo #1 Hand Doodled Elements'by Chrissy W. Lots of cute doodles in this kit....perfect for shabby goodenss!


I put my brand new PTI pinking sheers square die cut to work to create the faux fabric swatch for my vintage mother of pearl buttons.


These hearts are one of the doodle images from the kit...super cute! I colored them in with Copic markers and added a little hand stitching, stamp ink and a mini safety pin.

So, it's my 45th birthday today! My dear hubby took the day off so we could go play. Guess where I want to go? You would NEVER guess! Whole Foods! Ha! Yep, one just opened last Wednesday and I can't wait to check it out! Our family likes to eat loads of organic fruits and veggies, meals from scratch and now we're taking our reduce, reuse, recycle practices one step further and will be buying goods in bulk to cut down on packaging. Do you know you can buy shampoos and things in bulk? We'll have a lot fewer plastic bottles and containers this way! There's a thrift store near the new Whole Foods that I want to check out too! I always enjoy finding thrifty goodies!

Well, have a great day! I'll be back when I have something great to share with you! :) Kathy
