Sew Chic and Getting Cricky Blog Hop Winner!!


Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you are having a great day! The next two weeks are going to be so super-busy for me, I won't be able to get online much at all. I am trying to get some projects done in the next couple of days so I can schedule posts to go up, but I won't be able to stop by much and leave comments. I sincerely apologize and as soon as things get back to normal, I'll be around to catch up with everyone and see your amazing projects!
 
I have a card to enter into a challenge today. I used paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found - Union Square stack...just like the one I'm giving away! I absolutely love this paper! I gave the Sew Crafty mini another shot and it worked a little better this time. I stitched with black thread around the edge. The dress frame is from Forever Young, cut at 1 1/2". The buttons are from my stash. I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink. The stamp is from K Andrew Designs Fashionable Friends stamp set! Click HERE to purchase your own set of these fashionably fabulous stamps, or to see  her entire line! I used this sketch for the design:
I am entering the card in the My Sheri Crafts Challenge #69 - Sew Simple

I want to thank everyone who stopped by for the Getting Cricky Blog Hop on Friday and a special thanks to the friends who used my code to purchase K Andrew Design stamps at 20% off! When I figured in the comments plus the extra entries for the people who used the code, there were 107 entries. I used random org {True Random Number Generator: Min: 1 Max: 107 Result: 51 Powered by RANDOM.ORG} and the winner of the Coffee and Tea For You and Me set is..............................................................

  16. Congratulations, Sherrie! Enjoy your new goodies! :o) Lisa, you will be dearly missed... but will certainly look forward to your scheduled posts. :o) You'll have like a thousand comments to read when you get back online! Hehe! I hope things are going okay, sweet friend, and that you'll simply be busy.

    This card is wonderful! I'm a huge fan of the black/white/red combo and you used it so beautifully. I love the dress form, the vintage-distressed look, and those gorgeous papers and buttons. The stitching is great, too! I'm glad it worked better for you this time. :o) Smile lots and know that you'll be missed!
