So are you enjoying a nice, long weekend? I sure am. I've been enjoying the weekend with my kiddos, hitting the town, catching up on homework projects, and watched a couple of movies. Of course I spent some time crafting and adding a few new items to my Etsy shop.
Here is one of the cards I created this weekend. I was really in the mood for spring considering it rained for most of the weekend here and I am ready for some bright sunny weather. The colors of my card reflect that feeling of spring I've been missing.
I shabby'd up my card by brushing white paint over my patterned paper, adding some machine stitching, a sweet little row of mixed buttons and that fabulous ribbon - handmade by me!
I found that I use this ribbon so much that I needed to create my own. I love it! It's so shabby and vintage but with a fresh look to it. I added a sweet little Prima flower and a mini clothespin to my ribbon cluster. Isn't that cute?
I also hand-stamped a music sheet onto cardstock to peek-a-boo through the background of my card.
Now on to the giveaway! Since I've just recently opened my own little Etsy shop, I wanted to do a little something to promote it. I thought I would have an Etsy shop giveaway here on my blog. Here are the deets....
