Feathers for MFT

Although, I'm still working on developing my personal style in cardmaking, I'm usually not big on lots and lots of layers. I've been wanting to play along with the MFT card challenges, but the multitudes of layers is often too intimidating for my leaning-towards-CAS style. But when I saw this week's simpler sketch, I gave it a shot. Here's the result:

And here's this week's MFTWSC212 sketch:

My card is vertical, and I rounded the bottom corners of my layer instead of a scallop edge, but otherwise, followed the sketch pretty closely...

Supplies used:

Stamps: MFT right on target, SU stipple plaid (retired)
Cardstock: SU Crumb Cake, SU Baja Breeze (retired) Neenah Solar White
Ink: SU Crumb Cake

Just a Couple of things I've sewn...

I've been doing a lot of sewing lately. Here are just a couple of the things I've made.

A card/cash wallet with key ring: 

A diaper/wipes clutch:

I've also made other wallets, card/business card holder, crayon rolls, crayon/paper holders with handle, door latch stoppers (to help doors close quietly), jean lunch bags, and re-purposed banded tank. If anyone is interested in my posting more of my sewing creations here, please let me know in the comments.

Not your typical baby card

I know, this is my first card in a few weeks. My stamping goodies are feeling a bit neglected. I've been doing a lot of sewing, I'll try posting some of the things I made in the next few days. But I've missed my cardmaking supplies, and when my good friend had a baby girl on New Year's, it was the perfect opportunity to make her this card: 

I saw the expression, and just had to make a card with it! I've also been wanting to use this Paper Smooches background builders die set for the Paper Smooches "Anything Goes" Challenge this week. 


I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says "Something New" Challenge (new baby on a new  year). 

Finally, I'm entering this into CASology week 128: Date challenge
