Here it is....finally....!

I have combined a couple of challenges in this project today!

Let's see, there is the sewing challenge at Little Paper Shop, Jen del Muro's SFYTT (which was hard....whine) and Splitcoast Stampers Try a New Technique Challenge!! Way to go ME!!

I am late posting because I have a tricky little sewing machine, and in order for it to work, you have to bash the living daylights out of it move slowly and speak sweetly, which I did!

I used Little Paper Shop's stamp set Butterflies and Blossoms. I really wanted to have a butterfly on my card, but a butterfly like everyone else has in 3-D!!

So I stamped the butterfly in versamark on Cornish Heritage Farms thicker than thick transparencies!

These transparencies are so thick you can emboss on them without melting or burning anything - that shouldn't be melted or burned..... I used blue and yellow MM shimmery embossing powder and heated it up to melt, then cut out the butterfly, folded it and glued it on with a clear glue dot! I love it!!

I really have got to run and post this because Allison is always late posting and if I am later than her well, what does that say???

Please check out the other design team's sewing cards and tell them that I am finally posted will ya?!!

I'm off to take Holly to math class today!!
I get to cruise my two local scrapbook shops-just like I did last week, and the week before, and the week before and the ............
