I spent yesterday afternoon crafting with some fun new toys...because who really wants to be hunkered down for hurricane Earl? I have yet to bring in the patio furniture and the kids toys. I'm probably more in denial about how "bad" this storm is actually going to be? The storm is predicted to hit us between 5-7 p.m. this evening so we will be prepared by then! In the meantime, I plan to stay in my studio over the long weekend and get on some projects I've been eager to try. I've already got teacher gifts completed for Christmas...SCORE!This is a sweet little card I made for my girlfriend to go with this lovely GIFT. Since I knew I wanted to use the new felt with the grass die from MFT and cloud die from PTI, I kept the bg simple by arranging a few words from Friends 'til the End. Both manufacturers dies work great! I loved how well the felt cut the grass. The felt is soft to the touch and leaves no frays or excess material after releasing from the die. I did notice while attempting to sew with the felt though, that it does have a tendency to stretch under my sewing foot. Almost forgot, there is one more of my favorite stamp companies, Verve Stamps-Blue Skies that I used for the sentiment.Alright, enough procrastinating! I've got things to get done today and they CAN'T wait! Going out to get a few things, then home to put on a pot of chili and ride out this storm!
