Sew Thankful

I am so happy that I finally feel nearly 100% better. Even the cough has finally settled down. I can finally enjoy my vacation time - even though I am subbing all week for summer school. It's fun because it's just a few hours and I get my kid fix for the day.

For today, I have so desperately wanted to use the newly released set Cute As A Button from There She Goes. I was sick during the release and just had to give in to sleep. I set my stamp set aside. I was so happy to pull it out and get in all inky. I was so excited when I saw this set. I just love the wire mannequin. It reminds me of the one my mother had when I was growing up - although hers was not wire.


I decided to play along with The Ribbon Carousel RCC57 - Get Sketchy challenge. I have never played in any of their challenges. I have a ton of amazing ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel and I just bought some fabulous paper packs from Corinna as well. I really like the sketch I think it really fit this image quite well. Their challenge says make sure it has ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread...anything on a spool. I did just that!! 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have an incredibly awesome day!!

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
