paper roses...

I have been spending so much time in the garden lately...

that  hadn't realized how much I miss my craft room.


So last night I spent some time cutting out paper roses from this beautiful K & Company paper that I found at Michael's.


I used this beautiful inspiration challenge from Melissa Phillips charming blog as my starting point. 


She challenges us every week or two with stunning pictures from Leslie over at a Creative Mint.

I thought this was the perfect time to share this sweet card, too. 


A few weeks ago I had a request from my mom for a "sewing card" for her ladies quilt group giveaway...

Of course I had the perfect paper in my stash...
this is Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl.

Aren't the measuring tapes adorable and that sewing machine is such a hoot!



And I thought this sentiment was just perfect for the inside...



Don't you just hate it when one wonderful obsession crowds out another?  Oh, for one more day in the week or even a few more hours in the day!  What a blessed life this is...

Do something you love today...

Blessings,
Patty
