Looks like we made it through another Monday! ;) It wasn't the nicest day around here...it was cloudy, chilly and misty all day! I'm looking forward to having some new studio lights installed so on days like yesterday, I can just crank up all the bright, full spectrum lights and pretend it's a lovely sunny day! I could even whip up a virgin fruity drink, stick a cute little cocktail umbrella in it and call it a vacation day! ;)

Okay, enough day dreaming! Let's get crafty, shall we? I have a card to share. This is another, "I'm just going to play and see where it takes me." project.

I'm in a tag phase right now! Along with die cutting using both the positive and negative pieces. This pretty leaf die is from Taylored Expressions and the butterfly is My Favorite Things.

Thought I'd see what it looked like to stitch around both positive and negative cuts. I think it looks pretty cool.

At first I tried a darker thread, but I like this more subtle look.

I used some letter dies from Papertrey Ink to create an outline to stitch for the sentiment.

The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Circa collection.

Well, today is a bright and sunny day, much nicer than yesterday! I'm going to go soak it all in! I'll be back tomorrow with a Doodlebug share. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
