RAK from Charmaine....and another Tuscan Rose card!

Charmaine over at Oodabug Alley sent me this adorable RAK! She is about the sweetest person I know! She was one of the first bloggers to encourage me and make me feel like I had something to offer! Thanks so much Charmaine!


I have to laugh at how I created this Tuscan Rose card, because I was stamping with a totally different stamp and hated how it turned out! I liked the paper, but not the stamp! I noticed I had my collage sheet of butterflies from Tuscan Rose and realized the one butterfly matched my paper perfectly! So a new idea was born! I have been on a roll with my sewing machine lately, just love the homemade feel of it! (Course as I have said before....my sewing machine has NEVER touched clothing....just PAPER!) I used this beautiful flourish from Tuscan Rose and embossed it in black. I also had to add that touch of rhinestone in the corner!




**Some of you asked where the metallic sheet from yesterdays card came from....it is really old...like 5-6 years old...it was from Karen Foster!


**ALSO if Jayne doesn't claim her blog candy by Thursday...I will draw again!


** I will post my "mini" blog candy tomorrow some time!
