Here is the card and scrapbook page that we made

For the scrapbook page, we once again used the "A Good Egg" stamp set and Nursery Suite designer series paper, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Regal Rose and Whisper White cardstock.  We used the Stampin`Pastels and Peach Parfait Stampin`Write marker, the Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Dimensionals and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon, Large Oval, Scallop Oval, 2 3/8 inch Scallop Circle and the 1 3/4 inch Circle Punches.

Sew Suite...

As soon as I saw this stamp set, "Sew Suite"
from the Occasions Mini Catalogue, I knew that I HAD to have it!! 
Many of the women in my family sew; my grandmother taught me how
to make everything from a pin-cushion, to an apron to a quilt when I was still quite young.  That`s not to say
that I have nearly as much talent as she does.... 
This card was made for my Aunt Laura`s Birthday.  She is my Mom`s eldest sister and an amazing quilter. I used the "Sweet Stitches" designer series paper with the "Sweet Stitches" fabric brads, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo and Very Vanilla cardstock and some retired Tempting Turquoise 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon.  I stamped the mannequin using my Jet Black StazOn directly unto the dsp and cut out the body of the manaquin and popped them up using dimensionals.  I also stamped the spool of thread onto the Wild Wasabi c.s. using my VersaMark.  The ruler was coloured in using my Stampin`Pastels. 
I hope that you like this card as much as I do and I sincerely hope that my Aunt Laura does not see this post before her birthday card arrives in the mail!!
