April Showers Blog Hop

We're so glad you are hopping with us today.
We've got all kinds of great baby and bridal shower related crafts and ideas for you.

You should have arrived here from Amanda.  If you just stopped by, be sure to hop to the Theresa's blog at to get started and not miss any of the great projects.

Now on with the projects.

I love to color digital stamps for cards and either use alcohol markers, chalk, or colored pencils. I used alcohol markers on this spring time gal digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps. It's a simple card but perfect for a birthday, hello or thank you.

Now on to my newest adventures ... sewing and machine embroidering.

 <Here is the machine embroidery I did on the front side.

Above is the pillow once the hoop is off and it's sewn and full of fluff.
 This is the backside of the pillow. I still have a long way to go but I'm learning and getting a little better each time I do a new project. My mother and grandmother loved to sew when I was growing up and they made it look so easy. It's not but it is rewarding in the end.

Thanks for hopping with us today. Be sure to comment on each blog along the way
