Carrie's FF Challenge - Multihobby Scrappin'

8/29/2009 11:04:00 AM Edit This 7 Comments »
I just love the SPCC Finally Friday Challenge! Every week, Samantha has a different guest designer, and they are all so talented and creative! This week's challenge, by a wonderful gal named Carrie, has us combining scrappin' with any of our other hobbies (and aren't we all so multifaceted?). This week was really stressful for me, and I've got lots to do this weekend (laundry, mowing, grading,...), so of course, I am papercrafting! One of my other hobbies is quilting. And, like most crafters, I have a variety of UFO's (UnFinished Objects) laying around. So I took some little quilt squares and stitched them into some get well cards. Isn't that kind of what we crafters do? After a stressful week, we focus on others (or use them as an excuse to craft). Here are the details: CS is SU Very Vanilla, Brocade Blue, and Bella Birds DSP; ribbon is SU Kraft Taffeta; sentiment is from TAC; and ink is SU Brocade Blue: Miscellaneous: Heidi Swapp edge distresser. I have been so inspired by Stacy M and so many others who use sewing on their cards, so I thought I'd try it too. I'm so glad that I did. The sewing machine might just become a fixture in my living room!

I LOVE it!!! Awesome job...I wish I could quilt, but I have trouble sewing in straight lines. One day, I'd like to learn though. Thanks for playing!
