Happy Sunday!  I've been spending mine inside where it's cool, 108 degrees out there right now, BLECH!  And what better way to occupy my time than to craft a few cards!  This one is for a special Aunt of mine.  She used to be a professional seamstress.  At 92 she still sews and does crafts!  Hope I manage to be that chipper if I am lucky enough to reach that age!

I used a lot of distress ink and distressed the edges to give it an aged look.  I stamped the image onto come patterned paper and cut out the bonnet, apron and lacy bottom under her skirt.  I sewed the pieces together, added a bit of ribbon on the bonnet and some hand made flowers of the same paper pattern.  The papers are from a stack called "Crafty" by DCWV.  The stamp is from my FAVE company, Bugaboo and is called "Sewing".

The inside:

Enjoy the rest of your day and have a great week ahead!  Aloha!
