Be Mine!!

Week 2 of the Verve weekly sketch challenges is a sketch from Charmaine. I used this Yummy paper from MM called Je t'adore-- love the pinks with a hint of green, ohh.. and flowery!! Stamped the hearts from Verve's Text Objects dp and kraft, cut out, added a few little rhinestones to the corner. Purchased a new Janome sew mini {3rd sewing machine this year, don't ask!!} No, honestly it wasn't all my fault- just maybe, the second mishap!!!! Added a little stitching in kraft, distressed the edges of the back two panels, stamped the Be Mine from Verve's "Hearts on Fire" to a Maya Road journaling ticket {have had these for a while and recently, after seeing some tickets used, I remembered I had them--don't tell me you don't have things in your stash that you don't remember-- I know it's not true!! LOL} Lastly, I added a bow made with crinkled seam binding, crochet lace, and pearl strings along with a couple Maya Road stickpins and a Websters Pages button in the middle.

When I went back and looked at the pics... first thought was the bow combo looked like "tarantula" legs??? IRL it's pretty.

Here's the card

Vickie, you made me laugh out loud (and I'm at work!) when you said your bow looks like tarantula legs! NOT! Of course, now that you pointed it out...that's what I see - lol! My Janome mini bit the dust, too! It still sews but the stitches are wonky no matter what I do with the settings. Grrr...haven't had it that long. What happened to yours?

Third sewing machine....hmmmm what are you doing to the poor things LOL! Glad you have a replacement and can sew on your cards again. Love the distressing and I got a good giggle re: the tarantula legs comment. Looks lovely to me!
