Sew Sweet

Hi Everyone! I hope you all are enjoying spring, at least what we have had of it. It seems like everywhere the weather has been so crazy! Here in Southern California, we have been having some unusually hot weather for this time of year. Last week it got up to 100 degrees!  That's too hot for me, especially since my house doesn't have air conditioning. I hope the summer doesn't bring more hot days like that! Even though it was too hot to do much of anything, I was able to do a little crafting!

For my card, I used the Penelope Paper Pack from Hot Off The Press along with the matching die cuts that I was able to download for free at Paper Wishes. I stamped the very cute Tilda Makes A Blueberry Blanket on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored her using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I paper pieced Tilda's dress, socks and blanket from the die cuts. The patterns on the die cuts are much smaller than the design papers, so they were just perfect. I also stamped the Tilda image on the die cut frame that I used. I fussy cut out the image that I stamped on the Cryogen White Card Stock and placed it on top of this image. This way I didn't have to worry about cutting out the tiny needle and thread. The lace that I used is from Michael's. The flowers are from Recollections, Prima and All Natural Accents. I added pearl stamens that I found at Joann's in the cake decorating department to the teal Prima flowers . The "Sew Sweet" is from the Sew Cute Small Stamp Set from Paper Wishes.

For the jar, I used the Sizzix Candy Jars ScoreBoards XL Die. I cut it out of the Sizzix Little Sizzles White Mat Board. I paper pieced the Penelope Design Papers on the outside and the inside. I added some stitched ribbon from my stash along with some the same flowers that I used for the card. I think this jar is so cute and it was very easy to put together.

Well, thank you for stopping by my blog today! I really appreciate all the sweet comments that you leave for me!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I am entering my card into the following challenge:
