Delighted by Your Gift

Hope everyone's having a lovely week so far! I'm in the process of making an apron... figured it was about time to dust off my sewing skills (especially now that I have a sewing machine!) My last sewing venture was in junior high home economics class so yeah... But there's so many hot fabrics (but tell you the truth, I still love paper more... ironing is not my favorite task especially since I don't have a ironing board so my back hurts like no other from bending funny)

And I'm still loving the Blessed by You
from Waltzingmouse Stamps. So many fun different things to do with it!

I stamped the different leaves in different colors. Then sponged the edges... I think I need more practice sponging...

The lines on the side are from the Seasons of Love - Tags set. It's the dotted lines for inside the tags. :) Multi use!

My last buttony bow didn't have the twine as a bow so I'd try again. Although between you and me, I think I need some nice thick ribbon... twill doesn't fluff.
