Hello Sweet friends.
I don't know about you
but here in Las Vegas summer is definitely upon us.
Everyday this week should be nice and hot.
This is always the time of year I question why
in the heck do I live here.
The good news is that this is the time of year
that we take lots of trips to escape the heat.
So I guess it's not all that bad.
I just love the word enjoy.. It is such a happy word.
The word just makes me smile.
And it is the word that was printed by a sweet blog friend
on the front of this card. Thanks Cynn..
So let me show you what I created for this weeks challenge over at
City Crafter challenge blog.
It's a tiny little pillow. I had so much fun making this. I was
so happy to see that my sewing machine still worked on material.
It has been awhile. As you probably know I use it a lot for my cards.
Although I did do some hand stitching also..
It was my turn to host this week so I came up with the theme
Buttons, Buttons. You must use 5 buttons on your project.
As you can see I used some pretty fun elements on my project
Like Burlap and Lace and Seam Binding.
I am really happy with the way this turned out
but my sweet Husband doesn't understand why someone would
need a little pillow like this. So I had to explain that girls just
like pretty things to decorate there space with.
He couldn't argue with that.. :)
To get all the details on this challenge you can
head on over to
I also wanted to share some
that I received..
Here is a postcard that I received from Valerie from Bastelmania..
I just love the collage work here. Thanks so much my friend..
I love it.
And that's not all
I also recieved these wonderful magazines with some chocolate and
a couple of stamps from another sweet blog friend. Cynnie, And her blog is Galerie 46.
These magazines are in German and I have really enjoyed looking through them.
So pretty.. Now if I could only read some of the recipes.. Hee Hee..
And here is the beautiful card Cynnie
made me.. It really is gorgeous..
I love the way she wrote the word Enjoy..
But I think I already told you that..
Thanks you so much my sweet friend it really was
so kind of you..
Thanks so much for stopping by.
