Sew, what's new?

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
Sew, what's new with you?  Not much new around here, just busy, busy, busy!  I am working like crazy as our VBS Kick-Off party deadline gets closer and closer.  We still have so much work to do!  It's coming along pretty well, but I'm getting close to panic mode!

I had to sneak in a bit of crafting time today, I was having serious withdrawals!  I managed to put together a quick card and today's post will be a short one (lucky you) as it's back to VBS stuff as soon as I finish this up!

Ok, today's card is what I guess you would call a hybrid...part Cameo...part Cricut...


* The spool shaped card base is from the Silhouette Store
* I inked up the edges and wrapped some DMC embroidery floss (left overs from my cross-stitching days) around the front of the spool.
* The flower is from Cricut's "Flower Shoppe" cartridge
* I added some green Crinkle Ribbon for leaves and a button from my stash
* The pins are corsage pins that had a white pearl at the top.  I just added a couple of blue beads to one and pink beads to the other
* Sentiment is from the Pink By Design stamp set "Material Girl"

Here's a look from another angle...

Sew (sorry, I can't seem to help myself), I'm kinda liking my hybrid card! to work on VBS!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon!

Until next time,
