Hooray for Friday


I love Friday’s, don’t you?  I can’t wait to sleep in this weekend (even if it’s for a little bit).  Then I have Monday off, so I’m going to try to finish making my Christmas cards.  What is wrong with me this year?  I am never this ambitious.  So, to show you that I’m telling the truth I’ll share this Christmas card with you:

Christmas Sewn Strips

LOL yes I’ve been playing with the sewing machine lately.  Doesn’t look very professional, does it?

There’s a closeup of the beautiful journal block from Unity Stamp Co.  I stamped a sentiment (from Papertrey Inks) in the middle, sponged some Antique Linen Distress Ink around the outside and added a little blue gem.  The pattern paper is from My Minds Eye and the ribbon is from Michael’s.  Hope you like it!
