porch facelift......



I am so disappointed that I have not been on my blog a little more often then I have.. But things have been a little busy this summer at the Dol House! I so wanted to get this card made and into the mail for some time. Finally, it is done! I so love this image from LOTV. I am so addicted to that stamping line! I used distress inks to colour this cutie and totally love the colours...the pinks and the greens are a colour combo I really love together!
My wicker chairs on my porch were in need of a facelift. So this morning I headed off to a fabric store in need of some pretty fabric.....oh I am so pleased with this little facelift! So summery, so me! Plaids and flowers...yummy! Nothing like some new pillows to make a girl feel good. Besides making cards and baking, sewing is another hobby I love!

  24. Great choice of fabrics...your pillows look beautiful. Sewing is another of my loves and that's what I've been up to for the last few months. Hence, the lack of posts and comments. I'm so sorry - it's tough fitting in all that I need, and want, to do. Your Potato Pizza recipe card is adorable. I do love the two boys together. When it starts cooling off to pleasantness here I automatically think of you and how much you dread the cold weather, not that I blame you one bit. You can always come south - my door's always open for you. Hugs,
