Handmade with Love

Hello everyone...I had a chance to play in the craft room yesterday and I made a card with the Taylored Expressions April Stamp of the Month called Made With Love and the coordinating dies called Stitched with Love. Since I love to sew and many of my friends do too, this set will be inked up quite often!! 

The diecut dress form, sewing machine, and buttons were all cut out with the Stitched with Love dies and adhered with pop dots and glue dots. The sentiment is from the Made With Love set and the paper is from Echo Parks Bundle of Joy 6x6 paper pad. The sewing, enamel dots and hemp cording finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by today...I hope you have a great day!! I will be weeding and planting flowers hubs dug me up a large area (24' by 10') in the backyard for a new iris bed. I belong to the American Iris Society and we show hybrid iris....since I bought 20 new rhizomes I guess I will need someplace to plant them. One of these days if I keep buying more iris we won't have to mow...LOL!! 
This year I won two second place and one third at our local club blue ribbons this year :(  but I did get to clerk with the judge so I picked up lots of tips and info that will be very helpful for the next show!! Hopefully, I will be able to upload some pics of my iris this weekend!!
