foolish talk or activity; nonsense – often used interjectionally


Creative Imaginations - Inspired by: Anything Goes
Inkspirational - #31 Anything Goes
House of Cards - Photo Inspiration + Any style

I choose to pull from the colors of the photo inspiration to work with, in a CAS style.

I stamped the image twice so that I could cut out the spool and wrap it with sewing thread, then added my own needle to it.

Our Daily Bread - Spool and Tape stamp and die,
 Sewn with Love sentiment
StazOn - ink
Ranger - distress stain ( spool, scissors )
Faber Castell - gelato ( measuring tape )
American Craft - Slick Writer
DCWV - Shimmer Stack

Hi Sandee,

Cute card! I think anything with a sewing theme is popular right now. I like the color photo inspiration.

Nope, I still haven't done anything crafty. I'm bad.

I'll send you an email -- need to ask a couple of questions.
