Sew - Hello!

Hello Blog friends, time goes so quickly between posts and this one is a little overdue...real life needs me to visit every now and then - know what I mean! LOL! I am sure you do!!

The  background has been created using DCWV® paper, embossed using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and Dotted Flowers  Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities™ folder.  The fabulous Gold Majesty Circles Spellbinders® Imperial Gold die - you can see why it is so popular can't you!?  

The image is from a retired stamp set, designed by my dear friend Nina Brackett 
It has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Rich Cocoa and cut out using Labels Eight  Spellbinders® Nestabilities.  The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.  I have used Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L- E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares.

Lots of embellishments from my desk always add to the feel of  a shabby/nostalgic card - love that little tape measure!  The pearls are from and Want2Scrap©

Lots of layers and details - all in the name of cleaning my desk - but to be quite honest, it has made no difference! LOL!

This card is for the following challenges: 
Brown Sugar – Anything Goes 
Challenges and candies - Embossing 
Creative Corner - A Little Texture 
Cut it Up - Anything Goes 
Fussy and Fancy - Shabby Chic 
Pattie's Creations - Anything Goes

  6. One of my favorite pastimes Linda - clearing stuff from the desk stash! Kudos to you for doing that! Definitely some fun elements you've found to put in your design - I especially like the measuring tape under the Vintage sewing room scene.
