Hey there and good morning everyone!
Thanks so much for all your kind and encouraging words over the untimely demise of my dear computer. I’ve been getting along well without it. I’ve had plenty to do the last few days and I didn’t have a whole lot of time to think about it too much. Believe it or not, life does go on even when our computers don’t! Amazing!
The hubster is still asleep this morning, so I thought I’d take a few moments to grab his computer and post the card I made for this week’s Twisted Cards. This time the twist is “fabric”. So, grab your favorite fabric swatches and come on over and try out the challenge with us! You’ll find the sketch and the rest of the design team’s work here.
I decided to go with an autumn theme for this week’s card. The felt pumpkins are ones that I’ve had for a VERY long time. There were so many in the package and there are only so many places one can use felt pumpkins, after all. The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee. The leaves are a stamp from Stampin’ Up!, the sentiment stamp is from Hampton Arts, and the fabric, buttons and thread are from my stash.
I added the stitching and buttons to the pumpkins to dress them up a bit. I hope you like!
We’ve been invited to attend a croquet party at Congressman Pitts’s house later today by some friends of ours. It will be nice to meet a Congressman, but other than that, I’m not really looking forward to it at all. I tend to be a shy person and social events such as these are just not within my comfort zone. That and the fact that I really am not any good at croquet at all. Not even a little bit. Oh well. I will at least help everyone else feel better about their game.
I’ll be sure to let you all know how it goes.
Gotta run. Hubs is awake and is wondering what’s taking me so long! 🙂
