Not Cards ....

I have been so busy sewing lately that I haven't done much in the way of card making .... shame on me!!!!!  But I thought I would show you what I've been up to.  My husband bought me an embroidery machine a few years ago.  Cierra (DGD) and I used it a couple of times and decided that it was no fun and put it up.  I love handwork so pushing a few buttons and watching it embroidery bored me.  A couple of weeks ago I got it back out thinking if I wasn't going to use it I would sell it.  Well I have been embroidering up a storm.  I have made kindle and nook covers .... ring bearer pillows and a bunch of lace earrings.

Here is a ring bearer pillow I made:

And here are some of the earrings:

I've made about 12 pr. of earrings in a lot of different colors.  I need to work on my photography but I'll get there.   And one more thing..... this is a little linen Fold Over Bag I made:

Anyway this is what I've been up to .... I'll get a card up here in a couple of days.  :)

Thanks for looking!

Stars and Stripes at Daisy Doodles

The new challenge at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges is "Stars and Stripes".  I chose ...once again... the Lighthouse.  I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted my card to look like and this isn't quite what I had pictured but close....LOL.  Anyway this is what I ended up with:

I am going to retire this image for a while ... I have used it to death but I do love it.  You can find it HERE at Daisy's Digi Doodles for only $1.00.

Nook Cover

Just thought i'd show you my project for today.  It's not a card ... LOL.  This is a sewing project.  I have decided to make sleeves for the eReaders.  This is my first attempt.

(In real life the button matches the green of the cover)

This one is for my bosses wife.  She has the Nook.  So what do ya think?  I want to make a few more for the different eReaders and Tablets .... and one for a Laptop.  I have opened up an Etsy Shop and will be selling these and hopefully some other handmade items.  I've got some ideas of things I'm wanting to make.  We'll see how it goes.  :)

Thanks for coming by,

New Daisy Doodles Challenge

The challenge is to make a masculine card for Fathers's Day.  Every year when it's gets close to Father's Day my thoughts always turn to my Dad.  My Dad was a good man and truly was one of a kind.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss him.  With him in mind I created this card.

I know ....  more blue and more white space.   And the Lighthouse again .... I just can't help myself.  This image is so versatile ... it can be used for any occasion.  I have another card coming soon using it in a different way.  I hope you don't get tired of this image because I LOVE it!!

I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  Other than the image the supplies consist of blue and white cardstock .... blue ink .... letter stamps and one small piece of blue ribbon.  That's it.

Go to Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges Blog and see the inspiration there from the rest of the Design Team.  There are some wonderful cards.  Enter the challenge and let us see your projects for Father's Day.  You can visit Daisy's Digi Doodles and see all of her fabulous images.

Thinking Of You with LSS

For my card this week for Lindsay's Stamps Stuff   I have used an image from one of my favorite sets.  I seem to have several favorite sets ... LOL!!  This is from Lindsay's "Birds and Branches" set.

Right now I am really liking white space on cards ... just really like the look.  I also seem to be using a lot of blue lately.  Not sure what's up with that.  Still determined to use up my stash before buying anything new .... everything came from what I had on hand.  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  The sentiment is from Studio G.

Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Images can be found at mygrafico.  Check out Lindsay's Blog ... The Frugal Crafter ... for some amazing inspiration.  She has been posting a lot of video tutorials.  And she really is frugal !!  On Thursday's she posts a freebie and at the end of the week she'll have a round-up of the DT projects for this week.  You can find the Design Team Blogs in my right side bar.  More awesome inspiration!!

I am entering this in these challenges:
