Lovin' Botanicals

Hi everyone!!  Happy Sunday to you!!  I hope you have had a great weekend so far, we sure have!!  We have been able to spend some time with some old friends!!!  On Thursday morning I leave for CHA in Chicago, I am SO excited to see all of my stamping friends!!!
Today's card combines quite a few challenges, more than I have ever done before :).  Gina is challenging us to make a card using our favorite Stamp TV episode.  I've chosen 2, the first that came to mind was the Cracked Glass video,  I love the look and it is such a fun technique!!!  The second is the sewing video.  I had been wanting a Janome Sew Mini for quite some time but was intimidated, I was never good at it and I always failed miserably at the set up.  Gina gives such great step by step instructions, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a machine!!  And having a great time playing!!!  My card also incorporates 6 Dare to get Dirty challenges, if you are a fan club member on Splitcoast you can find all of the great challenges here!!!  I'm still planning on playing in a few more challenges before heading for Chicago, crossing my fingers that time will allow!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
