Inspirational Cards Sketch #14

Dawn has another great sketch this week at Inspirational Card Sketches and a great RAK for a giveaway to some lucky participant. Be sure and check out her site. I have worked on my card of and on between working on sewing projects -- multi-tasking has been the name of the game this week.

Paper: K & Company Wild Rasberry Paper Pad, Solid cardstock

Embellishments: Primas, grosgrain ribbon, button, raffia, hot fix crystals

I distressed the edges of all the paper and inked with Tea Dye distress ink. The sentiment was printed out on the computer and I adhered it with foam dots to give it a little more definition. For a finishing touch, I randomly scattered hot fix crystals.

I left work early today to meet my hubby and sister-in-law at the nursing home so we could have birthday cake to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. I embroidered a light weight fleece throw for her to have to cover up with when she is chilled. But I failed to take a picture of it last night before I wrapped it.

I am waiting for hubby to bring home Chinese for dinner -- I have a real taste for Egg Drop soup and egg rolls tonight. I have a tote bag to finish and then I will be finished with my must do sewing projects. Will post pics when the bag is finished.

Luck, love and laughter,

The idea of Chinese food makes my stomach growl. I haven't had it in so long!

Hope all is well. I'm catching up on the blog rounds.
