Hat Pins on Cards....

Hi Everyone,

I fell in love with these pins when I first made one and now so many of my cards have them on.  These two little beauties are made for Sam's Hat Pin Swap on SCS.  I almost pulled out of the card section because I just couldn't seem to come up with any ideas and my mojo seemed to be gone..... then..... WHAM it hit me and I made these two little beauties in record time.... can you believe it???

I really loved making this card and it was so easy and fairly quick too.  Cut the designer paper out and stitched it on the machine (finally remembered that step), put it all together, added a lace strip, a flower, some twine and a bow with a hat pin.  And of course a nice birthday wish!!

Could not be any easier and it looks so speccy!!

The above stitched card is entered into the Dolce Stamps and Cards: It's a "faux" Real Challenge

This one was really easy too, dark cardstock base card with white (Alabaster) fluid chalk stamping, a panel with a label frame cut out, and fixed in place with dimensional tape.  Some die cute foliage, gold cord and a fabric flower (cut from old curtains), with a button to finish off.  A ribbon sentiment of cherish, some pearls to balance and a little bow with the special hat pin in it.

This is a very pretty card too.

Well Sam I hope you like them.  You nearly missed out, how lucky can you be???

Just keep in mind my lovely followers and lookers, I will be having some blog candy very soon, I need to have 40 followers and I will be giving away some stamps and flowers.  So if you visit, become a follower, you can follow me even if you don't have a blog, just become a member of Blogger.

Get inky sometime soon.
