A Quick Hello

It is a beautiful Sunday where I am, and I just wanted to pop in and share a card with you I made last night.  Have you ever had the feeling that your mojo isn't there - but if you do something simple, or use a product that you've bought and haven't used yet, it would get your juices flowing??  Well, last night I knew I wanted to make something, but didn't want to start a big project.  So, I decided to use my newest dies I bought from PaperTrey Ink's latest release called - Quick Stitch Sentiments.  Having some stitching on any project just kicks it up a notch, and for me, I don't sew really - so these dies are perfect for me.  It makes it look like I know what I am doing when it comes to stitching or sewing - but really just remembering some of the things my grandmother taught me back when I was little.

I used some variegated floss from We R Memory Keepers and this floss has an ombre' look to it - very in right now!!  I used some pattern papers from this paper pack from Lawn Fawn.  This sentiment also comes from PaperTrey Ink from this set.  I adhered my panel with foam adhesive to a Kraft Card base, and to finish this simple card off - I added a butterfly dimensional sticker from The Paper Studio that I had in my stash.

Hope you like this card - and it inspires you in some way!  Have a nice rest of the weekend!!
