Okay, I know that I have post-arrhea right now. Sorry about so many posts in one day. You see, my mom is coming to visit for a week and I have lots of things to do before she gets here. And before Mother's Day weekend is in full swing I wanted to finish up a couple of challenges.
I don't know what it is about Gingham but it is one pattern that I just simply LOVE! I like Chevrons, Damasks, Polka Dots... but Gingham represents a warmth and coziness like my Grandma's house did when I was a kid. Maybe it is the fun memories of picnics, or being at the beach or just the homespun feel of it... I just love it. So when I heard that there was a challenge over at Moxie Fab World dedicated to my favorite print I just had to play along!
This thank you style card is made a little shabby and has lots of vintage summer goodness. Again, I had that picnic image in my mind and I couldn't wait to pick up my stash of Crate Paper. And, of course, summer means strawberries! So they needed a starring role in this affair as well. I used PTI's Strawberry Patch Stamps and dies as well as Perfect Patches dies. The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set that goes along with Strawberry Patch (though I can't seem to think of the name of it off hand). I used some lace, some crinkle ribbon, some distress ink and lots of stitching to give this the look that makes my heart go pitter patter. :D
I will be putting this up in my etsy shop as soon as I can part with it. For now, though, it has a cozy spot on my desk.
