CTS #49 and CF #117

I had a few minutes during Dancing with the Stars last night to make a card for CASE This Sketch



and CAS-ual Fridays.



The balloons were cut from George and Basic Shapes, the stitched lines are from PTI's Sew Simple Borders, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I'm not sure when I'll have time to make another card.  I am making Spanish dancer skirts for the ballet company that my granddaughter is in and they need to be done ASAP.  Other things keep getting in the way and I'm beginning to wonder when I'll have time to sit down and sew.  I had to come up with my own pattern and I do have one skirt cut out.  After they are sewn together, I need to ruffle 10 yards of lace to sew on them.  Wish me luck.

Thanks for stopping by.  May your day be filled with joy.

  6. Oh wow, I wonder how long it would take to ruffle 10 yards of lace (like "how many licks does it take to get to the center of a lolly pop?!") GOOD LUCK, Bobby! And, fun stitching on your balloon strings. Thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

  9. Good luck with the skirts! My life is full of moments when I feel I've bitten off far more than I can chew, but somehow, everything gets done. I'm sure you'll finish the skirts too.

    I LOVE your take on the sketch! The pop of colour in the balloons looks fabulous!
