Avocado:



Good morning all!  Boy, Thursday really snuck up on me and no, I am not complaining.  Any day closer to Friday is a good thing :)

I have two New Year's resolutions - in my personal life:  be a better person.  I do this one every year.  In my crafting life:  get that shabby-chic look perfected as I like to keep challenged.  You will be seeing a lot of distressing, inking, and lace this year on my blog.  No worries though, I haven't forgotten my bright and uber adorable digi cards either - they'll be making appearances as well!

So with all that morning babble out of the way, I would love to share my card with you all.  I brought out my trusted recycled flowers but also did some ink distressing with some teal (something a little different for me):
Card Ingredients:  Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels 18 and Say It Loud Sentiments stamps;  CraftSmart Chocolate, Gold, and Teal inks;  Bo Bunny Gabrielle papers;  Recollections cardstock;  Labels 18 Nestie;  BasicGrey Eclectic Embellishment and Making Memories brads;  recycled flowers;  Recollections pearls.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Scrap Creations - something old (recycled flower) and something new (papers and stamps)  Fashionable Stamping - anything goes with your new stash (papers and stamps);  Simon Says - something new (papers and stamps);  Mojo Monday - sketch #222:


Alright my blogging friends, that concludes my blog post for today.  Have a safe and wonderful Thursday!
