Kazan's Sketch #7 with Sock Monkey
Happy Friday! I'm ready for the weekend...haven't felt like that for awhile! At the same time, however, I'm ready for Monday and seeing the kids again!
I got off a little early Thursday, so I had time for a nap and then found some *energy* to stamp! I had tried for several nights to work on Kazan's Sketch #7 over at 2 Sketches 4 You, but nothing had been coming to me. I had the Top Note piece cut, but never got any farther. I had the Sock Monkey part on my desk since last month, then I saw the apple paper scrap, and since I've had *school* on my mind...ta da...an idea came to me!
Don't look too closely at the stitching around the edge, ugh! I tried to use my cheap litle sewing machine and didn't notice until finished that the thread wasn't even going through after half-ways, so I pulled the rest of the thread out and was left with just holes. I liked the empty holes okay, but they didn't show up very well, so I just used the white gel pen to make the "faux" stitches.
Don't you love the letters from the Sizzix Go Go Alphabet?! I've used them a few times now and love them! Here's the cool container it comes in and there's more empty slots in the back to store more dies in:
Okay, that's it for now! Hope you have a great Friday! Thanks for stopping by!
