a little sad....

I'm a little upset!!!....Amy Tangerine is here in MELBOURNE...
But tomorrow....I've zillion things to do... and I'm having some friends over for lunch too!!!...
Bad timing!!!....big SOB!!!!...Don't know if there is ever a next time!!!....Sigh!!
 
 
I'm so frustrated that I did 3 cards within an hour...
These cards are  inspired by Lawnscaping Challenge #40
Here are my 3 cards...
 
1st: I don't quite like... not impressive at all....
2nd: not to bad....
3rd: I think its cute....
Stamps: Lawn Fawn & Paper Smooches...
Die Cut: MFT & Lil Inker Designs
Paper: October Afternoon
 

 
Anyway... I've been meaning to say that... those stitches are not real...
 
I do not have a sewing machine just yet....I will soon... [I just don't have the time!]
 
 
 
 
 
Don't forget to join US over @LESSology...Challenge#18 ~ Fun with envelopes...
 
 
Thank you so much.. for all your love and sweet comments...
It means the world to me...hugs...xoxo

All three of your cards are fab! What are you talking about? LOL! I am a huge fan of chevron, so those rock! I want a typewriter and phone like hat! :) The cute bow tie on the third card is fantastic~ LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Thanks so much for joining us at Lawnscaping!

Shame sorry you will miss seeing AT! Good for you for getting all those cards done - you were getting better & better with each one! And wow your stitches look really real. You should get a machine - they are really easy to set up just to do straight stitching...

Brandi said...

I can't believe you created all of these in under an hour. Great job! Have fun tomorrow with your friends!

Karen B. said...

Such an amazing hour of crafting! Holy cow! These cards are gorgeous, your own patterned paper is divine!

Sorry you're frustrated about the Amy Tangerine. I hope you can get it soon! You crack me up that you crafted these awesome cards under frustration. The black stitching on the cards is such a cool touch...the chevrons are really cool. Great fussy cutting, too! *hugs*

Lizzy Hill said...

I was right! I was right! I LOVE it when you do more than one card, 'cos then I work out which I like best...I choose the middle one...can't go past those FAB, sparkly green chevrons:):) What a shame re: AT:(:( never mind, life is full of choices & sometimes they're made before we even get a choice????!!!!!

awesome cards...sorry you had to miss Amy:(

Sarah said...

that is sad! But I must say that I'm glad that's all that it is! I was a little worried when I saw your post title!! Glad that you are all okay at least, but I agree that it is tragic that you missed her! On a good note, your cards are very fun! I love those chevrons! and I can't believe those stitches aren't real! Very impressive!
