You Make me Smile......








    Love that simple sweet sentiment....and had to use it on this card the other day.  So much to smile about when creating away!  Keeps my mind off of other things...and keeps it on task.  It is good to get lost in the moment..on a detail here or there.   I found some fun diecuts the other day when I made my weekly visit to JoAnns.  Gorgeous old fashion roses and scrolls...butterflies...in pinks and greens.  Had to use them right away.   So I did.  The first two cards use them along with other goodies.  My last project I finished up today.  I have long wanted to create a pocket from burlap ever since I saw one in a Somersett magazine and have finely done it.  I just stitched up the sides and added all kinds of laces to create a large bloom.  I couldn't stop at just one pocket though and ended up making a smaller one for my parisian greeting card to fit in.  I made a few tags as well to go in it...and embellished them with a few things that were sitting on my craft table.  Key, more laces, ribbons, and such.  That is it.... you should try one yourself...if you do .....you wont want to stop at just one.  One last fun share....I was excited to find out I made the Rubber Cafe Design Team and can't wait to get creating with their fun products so I can share them here with you!  Hope to share soon!   Well that is it for today!  As always thank you for taking the time to visit and comment!  Hugs, cherry
