This was a card for my chemo buddy I did right before the 4th of July. I needed something easy to do because time was short with getting ready for my family party, so I turned to these awesome rub-ons by Fancy Pants I'd just gotten. I wasn't sure what I'd do with this particular sheet, but decided it would make a nice card for my buddy since she's of an age when home sewing was the thing to do. My dotted background paper was some I made a week earlier when playing with a new dotted background stamp. (Don't I always seem to have something new to play with?) I just used some cheap pink ink on white cardstock with the stamp, then inked the edges. I made the brown paper with the scallop border by pressing a brown inkpad on some textured blush cardstock. I thought these papers worked great with the rub-ons. So I just threw those papers together and added the rub-ons--couldn't be easier. The second picture shows the inside of the card, also done with rub-ons from the same sheet. Aren't they pretty? Thanks for taking a peek!

  3. Lovely cards!! I like the sewing, so pretty! I haven't sewn for so long. I used to make my kids clothes when they were younger, and now have granddaughters, plus I love how it looks on cards!
