Toile Elegance

Good morning everyone!!! Boy, has this been a crazy week for us....working, doctor's appointments, watching grandkids, and a little fender bender to round things off!!! We were taking two of out Grands to the movie last Tuesday and got hit in the back end. The car that hit us was actually hit from behind and she couldn't stop so she bumped into us. Not much damage to our car but her car was totaled. My DH took an ambulance ride to the ER but is ok. Come to find out the woman who caused the accident (she was in the 3rd car) didn't have insurance and her car was a rental from another state....it was rented more that 30 days ago. Hummmm...sounds like something is a little fishy!!! We really felt bad about the boys missing the movie so we took them yesterday...Mr. Popper's Penguins....what a fun movie!!! We all loved it and are ready to adopt some penguins...LOL!!! Anyway...I played around in my stamp room last night and this is what I came up with.



I stamped the Rubbernecker Toile Panel Background #SKU:572 and the RN sentiment #SKU:582-12 with Pacific Point. The corrugated cardboard frame is from Jellibean, the wood bird is from Kaiser Craft, and the Martha Stewart punched butterfluy, lace, seam binding, button, and twine finishes it off.

This is for a few challenges:



1. Splitcoast Stamper's Inspiration Challenge - Posh Vintage Designs - this is the sweater I took my inspiration from

2. The Poodles Parlour - anything to do with birds

3. Stampin for the Weekend - wings and things


5. Flutterby Wednesday - open but must use a butterfly, angel, or fairy



Thanks for dropping by...have a wonderful Saturday...hope you get to stamp a little today!!!!!!
