Good Friend Card


The papers are all from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky 6 by 6 pad.  I have left this pad on my desk and have been playing with the scraps created from other cards.  This is the 3rd post in a row using that paper and I think all the cards have a different feel.  I need to use scraps right away like this more often! *LOL*  Less waste and it's very efficient.  Once I put the scraps away I tend to forget about them and they go unused.  If I use them right away I save time and waste.

I used my Stampin Up Scallop Border punch for all the layers along the button.

The green buttons were from the Michael's $1 bin and I threaded them with purple embroidery floss.

The stamp is from a Stampin Up set called Good Friend that is now retired.

The bird brads are from Oriental Trading.  I'm not sure where the purple brad in between them came from.
 
I used a Sakura Stardust pen to do some stitching lines.
 
Thanks for stopping by!  I know I haven't been around much lately.  I've actually been crafty.  Just not much to show off.  I have been working on a crochet project, but it looks pretty gosh darn boring right now - It will eventually be a snazzy gingerbread house.  I've also started knitting, which so far I am horrible at!  *LOL*  No worries, I'm stubborn and I'll keep practicing.  I've also been messing around with my sewing.  One of these days I'll actually have something nifty to show you from all that dabbling ;)
