Hi All!

Hope you're Monday is off to a great start and that you had a nice weekend. It was rainy here again, but we had some fun anyway. We did dinner with friends on Saturday and then our weekend Sushi lunch on Sunday, yummy! Hoping for some sunny days this week as the kids are going stir crazy being stuck in the house and mommy isn't too happy either!

I did a little crafting yesterday and came up with a card for the "Shabby Shabby" challenge at lovely hAnglars only. I had gotten some new papers on Friday and so I started with those. They are from my local store, so not sure of the brand at the moment.

I created the shabby look by stitching the paper edges on a sewing machine. I also distressed the card stock paper edges with scissors and then used my thumb to scuff and tear the designer paper edges. I've colored the image with Copics. I received this image from my friend Deb. The layout is from the challenge at One Stop Crafts this week. I've embellished with cherry blossoms, lace, sticky pearls, and a sprig of gems which I got from a recent goodie swap with my friend Bev. The sentiment is from Ticket Sentiments at Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits at:
Practical Scrappers: Glitter and Flocking (thanks Tanya!)

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great Monday!

Happy Stamping,
