So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
- Irish Blessing

Spring Has Sprung!

This is for Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge -- sewing real or faux! Hope to see your creation!

                           Enter your sewing creation here!

I found this wonderful CHEAP stuff at WalMart and it was perfect for this card! It is Studio G stuff and only 97 cents! WHAT a bargain! Anyway...the dp is Studio G and all of the embellishments are also Studio G. The cs is Violets in Bloom by MFP and the white cs is GKD. I also used my new Sew Easy roller for the first time and use Sweet 16 cord.

The stamps are MFP a Heinrich Company's Black Eyed Susans (THOUGH mine are purple!) and the sayings are from MFP a Heinrich Company's Winter Crocus on the inside. They were stamped with Tuxedo Back Memento and Grape Jelly Memento. I used Spellbinders decorative Butterfly circle on the inside and the outside was trimmed with Spellbinders Edgeabilities classic bracket.

Added a little ribbon, Studio G buttons, brads and bird embellishment!

Spring Has Spring!
