A card and a wallet for Mom

It was my moms birthday a couple weeks ago. We went with the kids to see Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs. It was so cute! Anyway, I made her this card:

It uses the pattern stamp from the Unity Folk Inspired kit found HERE. I did a sponging technique using a versmark pad and SU ink pads.

I sewed the 4 pieces together and left the seams showing, then roughed the seams up using my scissors. I then sewed it onto some warm and natural batting, then sewed that onto the card base.
On the inside of the card I stamped the Love EWE sheep from Unity Stamp Co. with a Staz-On pad, and just cut it out.

I also made her this wallet. I used an old wallet I found for the pattern. I think I really like it. I'm making a few more for some friends.
I used fabric I got from our local city fair(Peach Days). This cute couple that lives here designs their own line of fabric. It's FABULOUS!!! It's called Joel Dewberry. CHECK THEM OUT!!!

It sure feels good to create and blog again. :)
