You're a Wonderful Friend

Hello crafty friends!

Hope you had a great weekend and Father's day! Ours was kinda uneventful, but we did have fun staying home on Sunday with a couch potato, movie watching and popcorn eating kinda day! The kiddos were excited to share their cards they made for daddy and he loved them of course. They did such a great job! :)


I have a new card to share with you all today...

Kinda turned out pinker than I would have liked, lol. I didn't go crazy with the flowers on this one this time...

I love this image of Krista's! She's adorable! I admit I'm horrible at hair though and this image is mostly allll But this image makes it great for practicing. I love the name Krista gave her too called "Hairy Situation" and she can be found at Saturated Canary HERE!

Some closeups...

Went with a simple inside on this one...left more a writing space.

  11. Hi Tracey,
    Wow this is absolutely gorgeous. I would say it's one of my favourite's but I feel that way each time you post a new design lol. I love them all :) Just you pierce the holes before you sew them ..manually..or do you use a sewing machine? If you do it manually, do you have a special tool that you use? The reason I ask is because the holes are aligned perfectly :) Thank you for sharing such a beautiful design. I love everything about it :) Hugz, Lisa.
