Just for Fun Lollipop

 

Hi there,

Yesterday I made a discovery.  I went home to visit my family, and we ended up making a trek out to a swimming hole somewhere in the middle of the boonies.  A few wrong turns and a 25 minute walk later, and we were at the most amazing man-made lake (an old limestone quarry) I’d ever seen.  How did I miss out on this place my whole life?!?  I’m almost feeling cheated.  The water was a beautiful clear turquoise (thank you, limestone), and such a refreshing temperature without being cold.  It’s definitely a place to remember.

So in keeping with my whole whimsical cards theme (I have a class for that this Sunday), I’ve done a purple lolli card.  It’s pretty darn similar to a card in the current Idea Book and Catalogue, but I changed a few things.

This is my very first sewing attempt on a card!  Aren’t you impressed?  OK, it’s not really that impressive, and I’m a bit sad that I hadn’t tried this before because it’s so easy.  You just choose a thread colour that appeals to you, a stitch that you like, and go for it.  Be aware that the needle dulls more quickly from paper than from fabric use.

I’m really quite a fan of the two different scalloped borders layered together like that.  Must do again. Brain, please remember this.

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    I love how clean this looks. The sewing, the layered borders, the colours – all the details make the card gorgeous!
