Ice Cream & Pickles

Hello Thursday, how we have missed you! I am struggling to believe that we are on the last Thursday of February.  As my daughter pointed out to me, they only have 4 months left of school.  Boy was I in a little bit of shock but you know Kaitlyn is right.  We had our usual running around but I was able to visit with a friend while waiting for my daughter to finish swimming, twice last week. On the weekend however, I had a few surprises my nephew and brother came for a visit, so did my friend Lori and her daughter.  The younger girls did some baking and oh was it ever fabulous.  The wee bit older girls *wink* went shopping and well of course that included a stop to the craft store, good coffee, and most of all fabulous company equaled one fun filled weekend.

Each Thursday, I look forward to revealing the challenge and my DT creation for 4 Crafty Chicks.  We are on Challenge #131 and our fantastic hostess is Lori.  She has another awesome challenge for us.  Lori is asking us to do some stitching - real or faux.

When we went to the craft store we bought a few new stamps and this is one of them. It is from Saturated Canary - Ice Cream & Pickles, isn't she cute? Boy was it ever a ton of fun coloring her.  I originally bought a little hand held sewing machine.  Broke it out for this challenge but neither myself or Lori could figure out how to get it to sew in a straight line. It would only go in a circle, obviously it was the person running it...LOL.  Needless to say my mom will be getting a call to please, please help me....LOL.  Here is my creation with my Faux stitching, new stamp and new pattern papers. Don't you just love 6X6 paper pads.  Hope you like this one as much as I do.  Thanks Lori for coloring with me, not to mention the shopping.

I would like to share my card with the everyone over at Make It Monday #129- Anything Goes

Be sure to stop by 4 Crafty Chicks and show us what stitching inspires in you. I would love to come over to your blog and see your wonderful creation.

Thank you so much for sharing my creation with me.

Thought this was perfect for this week challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.
Sew, that's the plan, eh? :)  #posters #keep_calm #advice #sayings #quotes #sewing #crafts
