Sweet Baby Chick and CPS

A quick trip to Hobby Lobby this morning to buy new B plates for the Cuttlebug with a 40% coupon resulted in a few more items. What a surprise! I got the plates along with a couple of dies that had been marked down and some fall ribbon that matches PTI's Scarlet Jewel. ( So much for the plan not to buy any more ribbon, except for PTI ribbon). I'm such a sucker for a bargain. I also got embroidery floss to match my latest PTI paper orders.

When I returned home, I had to choose between house cleaning and card making. Tough choice. LOL. So I finished my card for CPS (Sketch 125) which I combined with the Crafty Secrets Challenge on SCS. The challenge was to include stitching on the card. So I found the zig-zag foot and did my first zig-zag stitching on a card. I actually thought it was a little easier than straight stitching. When I'm straight stitching, I tend to go a little fast, and then my stitches get a little crooked.

The final product is this baby card.

I stamped the image from Crafty Secrets Easter Joy with Vintage Sepia (Versafine). I really like the sepia ink with Crafty Secrets vintage images even if you have to give it a little longer to dry. The sentiment is from Mixed Messages (PTI). After coloring the image with Prisma pencils and baby oil, I cut the image with Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities and layered on top of scalloped circle in Lemon Tart (PTI). The printed paper is Flower Patch (Making Memories). The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, and the buttons are from both PTI and Paper Studio.

Thanks for visiting,

  3. Hi Cammie!! I was perusing the gallery at PTI and one of your cards caught my eye. Then I saw that you are from K-Town where I lived for 35 years before moving to Fl a couple of years ago.
    Your cards are beautiful. They are so crisp and you add just the right coloring and embellies!
    Come visit me sometime at
