Taking a break....

Well, I still need thank you cards but I just needed to take a break from making them! I had an idea in mind last night but was just too tired to do anything about it. Today (and yes, this card hs taken ALL day), the whole thing changed as it got made. I still really like the end result!

This card is for several challenges:

1.) Phindy's Place Challenge Blog - Stitched Up! - I wanted to use my little paper sewing machine for this one but couldn't get it to work right so I ended up "sewing" it on the machine with no thread and then going back and hand stitching it! I can never get my stitches to be equal in length otherwise!

2.) Corrosive - Pink and Blue - okay, there is some green in there too but the card is mostly pink and blue!

3.) Sunday Sketch and Stamp - Sketch - I really didn't love this sketch when I first glanced at it, then as I started working with it, I really did enjoy it! I think the end result looks nice!

4.) Digital Tuesday - Dazzle Me! - This is about as glittery/sparkly/or blingy as I get!


  1. Katie, I love the way you colored this image and everything else works wonderfully with it.

  2. Oh Katie, you always do such pretty cards! I'm amazed on how you are able to manage to create so many great cards with your sweet little baby that (I'm sure) keeps you busy.
    Thanks so much for joining us at Phindys Challenge!
