Last Little Paper Shop Pre-view this month

So here is my last on for October...I have super enjoyed these new sets and can't wait to see what else they will have in the future! Of course just because the pre-views are over doesn't mean I won't be using the sets anymore! LOL

All the new sets will be released at the Little Paper Shop on Tuesday the 14th. But until then don't forget to go by the Little Paper Shop blog and see what else the design team has come up with. These girls are just amazing!!!
I really like this card...I think I say that about every card I post...because seriously if I didn't like it in the least it would probably be in the trash can! LOL But this card started off as something totally different! And it ended up here because of mistakes and cover ups, but the end result is something I quite like! I had gotten my papers out and look over and saw my sewing maching and I though...hey everyone else is using it for card...why can't I? (I used the red because it was already in my machine and I was too lazy to change it! LOL)

So I went and set it to zig zag and went on my way...when I got to the end, as I was removing my paper the thread started to come undone...so I punched out a marvy scallop circle and added it on top...the machine got stuck and I pressed on the pressor foot to try to get it unstuck and the needle took off fast sewing and went off my circle...hints the use of the key tag punch for the sentiment...to cover my stray stitches! LOL

So then I though, Hey this is quite nice, I'll just stamp the bird up here and it will look like there is a tree off the other side of the card...yeah I had inked the stamp properly...part of him was not vissible due to my improper inking abilities! LOL So I punched out another circle and colored both birds, added the ribbon and after inking positioned the second circle and headed for the machine again. I know pretty brave huh! This time the stitching went a little better, although still pretty crocked, I think it adds charm and whimsy! LOL at least thats what I'm calling it! So with the left over scallop punch and the SU! scallop punch I sponged the clpuds on and called it a day!

So there you have it...why this card exsists! Aren't you glad for mistakes some days! I know that my God doesn't make mistakes, he just uses things to mold us and stretch us...just like in this card, I have been stretched! May God Bless you today, and use your struggles to show you His glory!

I absolutely LOVE this card. The layers with the sewing...the fresh gorgeous coral colours...the way you layered the bird (totally brilliant.) Just stunning work. Makes me want to stamp that birdy again! :O)
