Dig Those Snazzy Dresses:

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, race fans!

Today's card project was created for no-good reason using this vintage-inspired stamp from Inkadinkado's "Tin Can Mail" collection.

I scored my Cosmo Cricket DP working off the pattern in the paper, then sanded the score lines and applied some "Old Paper" Distress Ink.

I paper-pieced the gals' dresses using more paper from this collection, then tied on some Sinamay ribbon and a bit of waxed linen thread.

For the rest of the exciting product deets, check out the supply list, below.

Soooooo, yesterday, I accompanied Sheila while she had a biopsy on this crazy-lookin' lump on her leg.

She was pretty nervous and mentioned it to her nurse.

"Not to worry, dear," the nurse assured her, "you're just having a little autopsy."

We laughed till we cried!

And she's fine ... totally benign. Yay!
