Happy VD!

How many times do you change your layout before you finally get "happy" with the outcome? This little Polaroid Cutie image from Artistic Outpost has been on 3 or 4 backgrounds in the past week, I can't believe she made it thru all the moving! Check it out...I pulled out my mini sewing machine that has been sitting on the shelf for a coupla' years and actually sewed on this card! Now that is a big first...but it did go back into it's box when I was done. Ms. Cutie is resting on a button background from the Mini Masterpiece sheet, both currently on special at Artistic Outpost. Please stop by and tell them I sent you! I thought the background suited the "busy" elements of the card. Just crumbled the cardstock, sponged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and ironed on the reverse side. Boy, am I domesticated this week....sew and iron in 1 week! Amazing!! Wishing you all love and happiness on this special day......hugs, Gerrie

I keep changing my layout until it "speaks" to me! Sometimes it's maddening! Your card came together beautifully!

LOL Your husband probably didn't recognize you with an iron in your hand!! >;o) I actually have one of those little sewing machines still mint in the box - it's never seen the light of day! You've inspired me to dig it out and give it a try
