Whoa. Where did May go?

May has been a blur.
I have been busy designing some things that I can't quite share just yet....but I can share this.

Here is the card that I made for my mommy for Mother's Day. She loves to sew so the pin cushion was not lost on her.

Supplies: Jillibean Soup kraft card base, My Little Shoebox patterned paper and diecut, Technique Tuesday stamp (Ali Edwards Collection), Tsukineko ink, American Crafts layering tape.

I will be back on Tuesday with a 3T's (Tips, Tricks & Techniques) project for Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. ;0)
