Dawn McVey's Raspberry Color Suite Challenge

I thought I'd participate in Dawn's challenge again this week. Very fun to try colors that I would not normally put together! It is also my first time sewing on a card...even if it was just a button! Can't say I'm ready to get out the sewing machine... I did a 3 x 3 card. Always nice to have a small card to put in a gift bag!
I also wanted to share some of Collin's creations! Most nights when I get home from work, he'll say to me, "Mommy, can we go in your work room tonight?" Music to my ears...I'll always take an excuse to go craft! He's discovered the Cricut as you'll see from his creations below. You'll also be very impressed that he knows to use the paper cutter at 5.5" to make two cards out one sheet of paper! After making cards, they go in an envelope. Doesn't quite understand the concept of how long the mail takes to send something...but he has a great time creating!










Ingredients: Bazzill basics paper, SU Designer Series Paper Buttons, Silhouette stamps and markers; PaperTrey Ink ribbon

  2. Very pretty! Love that stamp, is it a stamp? Or did you use some creative license to create those buds. They look hand painted. Scrumptious
