You Are SEW Special!

This weekend, a dear friend took Alexis and I to a landscaper where we took a fun class on potting hanging baskets. We got to pick our own flowers and design hanging baskets. The best part is that the landscaper will be keeping them for us until we can safely put them outdoors - they water, trim and completely take care of them so when it's time for us to have them, they're established and beautiful. How fun! We had a great time. To thank the sweet lady (Sandee is her name), I made a centerpiece (to be shared later) and a card to match. I had picked up some vintage wooden spools still in the wrapping at my local Goodwill a while back. They are incorporated into the centerpiece, and I wanted to continue the theme with the card. I used some cute paper from the Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl" line and backed it with pink cardstock I cut with my Martha Stewart Crafts "Deco Shells" punches. The sentiment was printed directly onto the pink cardstock before I punched it. I just created it in Microsoft Word. To finish this card off, I attached buttons with Glue Arts "Mini Adhesive Squares" and glued on my blue ric rac with Beacon Adhesives "Fabri-Tac" - so easy! Now that my Spring break is over *sob* I actually have to go back to class now. It starts in half an hour...and I'm still in my jammies. Guess I should get on that! Thanks for taking a peek!
