Every year, the town my mom lives in holds a HUGE community yard sale....and every year, my mom and I are suckers and join in on the craziness! Yesterday, we spent hours getting everything ready and today was day one of the big show! There's one day left...and I'm hoping that I can make it :)
I was exhausted when I got home yesterday, so I was determined to create something today. The card uses some scraps that came with the A muse stamps I bought from Tracy. They came as a rectangle with two pink circles per scrap. I knew right away that I wanted to cut them in half and use this layout.
I tried two sizes of flowers and went with the smaller. I sewed on someAfter playing a bit, I added the faux stitching and that's where (IMO) it went awry....I thought...oooo, I should add polka dots to the ribbon......thanks yard sale for playing with my mojo! it's an *okay* card that I forced myself to post.
*********as I was typing this post, I began to hear these loud booms coming from outside. I went to the window and here's what I saw:
The Pittsburgh Steelers hold their training camp in the town that I live in. Tonight they had a night practice at the high school's football stadium, which is about 10 blocks from my house. I had no idea that they were setting off fireworks - what a nice surprise!!
