The first thing I opened was the felt die cuts…called Heartfelt..Whimsy…(cute name). I LOVE these. They are inexpensive and very eye catching! I got a few new stamp sets too…One of them called Fringed Phrases ( Love it!)

Not too much to say about these…very CAS. I used the kraft cardstock , some green embroidery floss, CTMH buttons and the leaves from the Tickled Pink SS stamped in Topiary ink second generation. The sentiment is from Fringed Phrases.

I really liked these as they were SO quick.

Ok I have to share something my son said to me…

I was repeating the familiar saying… “April showers bring May Flowers.” He says to me “Well mom what do May flowers bring?”

I say…”I don’t know Dan, smiles?”

And he says…”No mom they bring Pilgrims….ha ha ha ha!!!!”

Then he proceeds the crack up, as do I!

Although this may be one you have heard MANY times before…I had never heard it..So I thought I would share.

My Shout Out tonight is for Rachel over at Wonderfully Whimsy. Wow what an inspiration she is! She posts the most amazing art! I am in awe. I have received a card and 3D item from her personally and am here to say they are even better in person. She is a wonderfully artistic lady who’s blog was one of the first I ever started following. Just look at this!

I will post a card of hers soon…….Thanks Rachel!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday.

Enjoy!

Your mojo is back!! VERY cute cards. Love the embroidery with the felt! I got a CTMH order today but no felt :-( I forgot about it... senile. Speaking of, tell Dan he had this old lady over the barrel with his joke. It took me the longest time to "get it." Duh...

Your mojo is BACK! LOVE, love, love these cards. The felt looks awesome and the stitching is perfect.

I also loved Dan's joke! I giggled out loud and the girls wanted to know what made me laugh. I tried to explain, but they are a bit too young yet to "get" it.

And thanks to your shout out earlier about Rachel's blog, I happily view her projects via my Reader. Thanks!
