{Sew Happy}

Have you ever had weekend where you are excited for Monday to come?

It's been a long weekend, full of late nights, early rising and no naps! Hmp! So I am excited that tomorrow is going to be less hectic. Family is still here which is great but not so much stuff going on! I plan to sit out on the porch and slowly drink my coffee. We have no more summer plans til the first week of August! YEAH!!

Now on to the cards...I love these. Last summer I ordered this set from CTMH...I think it was one of the monthly set in the very back of their cattys... Simple Stitches. Well, I then bought some crappy white ink thinking that would look awesome. Well, crappy ink doesn't work! So playing around this weekend (avoiding the heat wave) I came up with these cards. I love them!!! I used the needle as the stem and masked part of the smaller flower for the leaves. On this pink one I also cut the circle to go on the outside of the scallop, like I saw on Allie Miles' blog.

Then I tried it in the Turquoise color to match the ribbon I had been wanting to use. I loved these cards so much, I used them as inspiration for my SIL's birthday cards. I always make her cards for her birthday and since she is more into needlework, these fit. I'll post those cards after her birthday, but I will hint Terri, that you can choose your own saying again!! I know you like that!!

OK, so Monday will be here soon and I am pooped...I think I should have made these cards instead ----> HERE

Katie, that was cute the way you linked to my cards. Thanks so much. Hope you have had some rest and enjoyed a long, leisurely, coffee.
