Prettie Lovey Wednesday

It was Jillian's turn to challenge the Prettie Girls and she wanted us to make something we love - just make a card that makes me happy!! Truthfully almost all of our cards we love right, or else we wouldn't be blogging about them - lol! :) But this was a chance to really make something totally me!!

I've seen seeing lots of buzz about these adorable little embellishments made with vintage book pages, buttons and sometimes flowers or felt. I've been meaning to give them a try but my friend Char finally pushed me over the edge with some beautiful card's (here's one of many!) she's been making!!

I picked up some pretty cotton thread last week at a quilt shop (OMGoodness, it has been ages since I was in a quilt shop and I could've stayed there for days!!! You'll be seeing a few more things from my trip soon!). Anyway, I did a search and found this super quick and easy pattern for crocheted hearts so I whipped up a couple (along with a few cute little flowers) and got to work. Then I needed something behind the heart . . . I remembered some old sheet music I have that belonged to my grandfather - perfect (here's a picture of it)!! But was I going to cut that?? NO WAY! So I scanned it into my computer and printed at 1/2 size - worked like a charm! I cut it out using a Cuttlebug flower die and then added a bit of ink before sewing on the crocheted heart and adding a button to the middle

I used Sealed With a Kiss from Paper Pretties- which, can you tell, I'm loving lately?!! :) I think it is so great how this image can look vintage-y or modern and is just so great for lots of occasions!! And did I tell you since it was re-released in rubber there is a fantastic Sealed With A Kiss Add On Sentiment set - makes it even more useful!! Since it was only a small portion of Luke & Lexi showing it was pretty fast coloring. I think this will be my hubby's Valentine's Day card - sssshhh!!

My Jules Jewels in ending today so you have a few more hours to post a comment here if you haven't already. I'll be back later with the winner! The children and DH are still trying to get well - poor baby Aaron has an ear infection so we got him some meds yesterday and hopefully he's on the mend! I'm just pooped, wanting everyone to be well!

Don't forget to check out the Prettie Girls' blogs for their challenge cards - I know they will be very prettie! :)

Have a great day everyone - thanks so much for visiting!!!

  12. So cute! I love the newspaper flower behind the heart! I wish I could just 'whip up' a quick crochet heart if I wanted to! I did get a book that tells the basics of crochet, let's just see if I ever put it to use!
