♥ You're Sew Special ♥

Happy Friday! Just wanted to stop in and say thank you to all of my new friends (followers) and subscribers and especially to all the old ones! I appreciate you all! And to show my appreciation, as you all know, I try to have some pretty big giveaways as often as I can! Well, make sure you come back here on Monday! I have another BIG one for you all!! (But don't forget, no Candy Chasers! I have to be fair to all of my faithful friends!) ;)


I created this sweet little note card for the Crafty Secrets August Linky Party. Love Crafty Secrets! So many sweet, vintage images! I used this sweet clear stamp set called "Sew Special". Love the cute zipper!!


I also used some paper by Bazzill and Kaiser Craft as well as some Prima trim, mini rose, and Liquid Pearls.

Tomorrow my niece from Italy leaves. :( I didn't get to really see her due to my kids being sick. But she is coming tomorrow for lunch before they leave for the airport. They are flying to Brazil next to visit her husband's family. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! See you on Monday!! ;)

Really pretty card, Melissa! I've been away from blogland for awhile; hope to be able to keep up with it all again now. I loved that Joy Taylor "cased" you recently on her blog. You have such a unique style and it would be hard for me to mimic it very well.
