Mom's Sewing Basket

WOW.......we sprang ahead and I'm still behind!!!! 
I just can't get used to the time change, it is WAY TOO dark in the morning.

It's time for another digi showcase from Glitterbabe's Digis.  I am using her sewing basket image.
This card reminds me so much of my mom and grandmother's old fashioned sewing basket.

Too Hot.......

It's Fat Tuesday, did you enjoy a pazcki today? I had a raspberry pazcki and it was so delicious.

I just love the background animal print with the pink and black polka dots, so fun!

I am so done with winter and ready for flip flops and shorts and getting the windows opened up.
These layouts make me smile.  Jenna is about 2 years old and enjoying all her Easter goodies.

Piece of Cake

It the  first Wednesday of March and it's time for a new month long challenge at Fresh Brewed Designs.

This month our challenge is pink and paper piecing.  I used Sweetheart Cupcake.
This is one of my favorite cake images from Heathers digis. It was so easy to paper piecing this image.
This is only the second time I have ever paper pieced an image and I love doing it. 
I used pink papers from my stash and added Stickles to the little hearts to make them sparkle.  
Looks so yummy!  
You can get all the details of the challenge and check out what the DT has been brewing up, here.

Enjoy the day,
