Shower Time


I finally got this set for myself! I've had it in stock before and they all sold out before I could get one! So I grabbed one out of this shipment for myself because I was dying to stamp it!

The stamp set is Shower Time from My Favorite Things.

All the designer papers are from a Basic Grey Lily Kate 6 x 6 pad that I had been hoarding. Yes....I hoard paper! Now tell the honest truth? Don't you hoard paper too? LOL! The umbrella is paper pieced, and I used Tombow markers to color the dress.

The sentiment is from a $1 clear stamp set I bought at Michael's. I've been buying those for a while now, and I think this is the first one I've ever inked!

I got a little carried away with the sewing on my Janome Sew Mini. I'm still learning about corners and such. But I DO love the look of stitching on cards. It's probably because I love texture so much...and stitching adds such beautiful texture.

I like the soft colors of this card. And I LOVE my new Shower Time stamp set!

Thanks so much for all your kind words on my posts, and for stopping by my blog. Don't forget to register for the blog candy. We're getting close!

I hope you all have a great Friday!

Love the sewing machine touch. I recall when you buoght it. In this case it adds visual interest. The set is nice. I particularly like the lady under the umbrella and feel this could also be used for spring sentiment stamps, liked April Showers Bring May Flowers.I have a raindrop stamp that would work well with this set. Love those $1 Michael stamp sets, too.

Oh Michelle, you've outdone yourself on this card! the colors, the paper piecing, the stitching and the stamp - it all works together perfectly! I have that same set of $1 stamps from Michaels (along with many others) and I use them often! They're a great bargain and so incredibly useful! TFS

This card is adorable!!! I love your papers, ribbons and colors, but I especially LOVE your very neat real stitches!!! Great card!!! And yes, the ribbon storage boxes were on an end aisle in the ribbon section 2 weeks ago -- I don't have a Michaels nearby, so I only hit them when I'm out of town.
