Perfect Sentiments Challenge- # 7- Stitch-it-Baby !!

So this challenge was to make a card for a baby and the twist was to use stitching . It could be fake or real stitching so I went for the fake stuff. I don't know how to sew so me and a sewing machine could get in alot a trouble. I could see me sewing my shirt to a card.
So, here is the final results....
Keep scrappin !!!

Now if you want to see alot more great project then slip on over to Perfect Sentiments and check out the talented ladies that hang out over there.....

Friendships Garden= Challenge # 4

This was the recipe for the Friendships Garden Challenge ......
Thanksgiving (or gratitude) Theme using this recipe:
1 Die Cut,
2 Patterned Papers,

So, I put on my thinking cap on and went to work. I started with my cricut image and everything else just fell into place... yea right nothing falls into place... but it did go easy I think I must be in the Holiday Spirit . I hope you like my card.

My Thrift Store Bargin

My best friend Lisa and I decided to go to a couple of our favorite Thrift Stores on Saturday and I got such a great deal that I had to share it with everyone.
I had recently seen a you tube video where you can use the wire cubes and make a 12 x 12 paper rack. So, when I saw these four packs all taped together for only  $ 2.99 each  I knew it was worth it even if I only got enough to make a few shelves. At that price I was willing to risk it
 Then I stopped by the Dollar Store and bought zip ties to hold it all together.
After I got home I ended up with 23 plastic pieces and 19 wire pieces.

So to recap...
4 packs for $ 2.99 each
5 packs of zip ties for $1.50 each
About $20.00 give or take a little..... And this is what I made....

When I first started putting it together it was a little tricky but then it got easier.
I can tell you it took me about an hour to get it all together. Also, make sure you cut the zip ties off as close as you can because they are sharp and you could get cut on them.
When I get it all full I'll take another picture.
Keep on scrappin !!
