Happy Weekend, everyone! We have had a rainy couple of days here, so the kids are inside playing and keeping the house noisy, but I have had some time to do some sewing and stamping. I am a much happier person when I've had time to do something just for fun, and today I am happy.
Yesterday I managed to sew four, count 'em FOUR, aprons! I made three aprons for my girls using a vintage-style print tablecloth. They love wearing aprons whenever they help in the kitchen and they always want the same apron, so now they don't have to share. Here is a photo of my youngest two modeling their new aprons.
Then, I made myself an apron. I have other aprons that I like to wear, but this one is a pretty apron, and it is kinda fun. I wore it this morning when I made coffee cake and cleaned the kitchen. Here is a photo (and the tutorial) for the apron I made.
I mentioned that I got to some stamping, right? Well, my little stamping hole has been neglected lately. I've had lots going on and I just haven't made time to stamp. But, today I managed a couple of cards. The one I'm sharing today is actually for a few different challenges. In the A Muse Lounge, there is a challenge to create a card using Julie Ebersole's genius as inspiration. Last year, she created this beauty. It is so simple and elegant! I knew what I wanted to do, then I realized that it also fit the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge, using green and white (and even some gingham print). And, finally, I found that it fit the CAS challenge on SCS from last week - It's Hip to be Square.
So, do you want to see my triple-whammy challenge card?
I used the tiny heart to make the mini shamrocks since I don't have a shamrock stamp. The shamrock stencil came from a newspaper advertisement that I found this morning. Talk about serendipity!
It came out rather lovely, I think. To quote JulieHRR, "I'm bouncin' with my arms wrapped 'round myself!"
