For all the instructions please head over to the Paper Bakery blog.

I used the February card kit "Umbrella Rain" to make my card.

Walk A Mile

I almost forgot to put this up on my blog....YIKES!!! While I was away on my scrap weekend I played along with the February sketch at My Creative Sketches.

If you go check the sketch out you will see that I turned it 90 degrees to accommodate my photo and I also added a second photo.

My oldest son Jonathan is always getting involved with charity events which is so wonderful. With his friend Mike they participated in the Walk A Mile in Her Shoes but not only did they put on high heel shoes they totally dressed the part with women's clothes too! Jonathan is the one in the "little black" dress.


Other supplies: American Craft Cardstock, Prima stickers

Edited Aug.3/14 to link up to the challenge at Paper Issues.

Faux or Real

Good morning everyone! It's time for another challenge at Seize the Birthday.

This week we have have an option of adding a topping which is to use stitching.....Faux or Real!

I love to use my sewing machine on my projects so I pulled out some gold thread to stitch around the top panel of my card.

Cardstock: SU, Bazzill, Neenah
Stamp: Cas-ual Friday
Other: Versamark, emb. powder,sequins, Gelatos
Water colour is a trend in paper crafting right now so on my scrap weekend I pulled out my Gelatos (which I had yet to do) and had my first try at water colouring! I like it and I know I will play some more with this technique.

I am entering my card in Virginia's View Challenge.

I hope I see your card over at Seize the Birthday. I wonder if you will use any stitching....faux or real!!
