CR84FN #58 ~ Lazy Hazy Days of Summer!

Hello out there in blogland! It's a HOT one here in Ohio again so it calls for a bit of laziness indoors ~hee! Hey I went to the dentist this afternoon and have been numb on the left side of my face, so that calls for laziness! I had a chip on a molar that needed repairing and at this moment I can feel my nose again!!! So on this lazy hazy day of summer I whipped up a fun little vintagey number for the CR84FN challenge that calls for red and yellow.


I was drawn to the flowers and polka dots (go figure)! My card base is covered in this fun Lily Bee Design: Double Dutch polka dot paper and some sweet red paper by October Afternoon that was die cut with my PTI scalloped border. Some fun OA: Farmhouse diecuts got the the sewing theme rolling. Two tiny wooden spools were used; one covered in a scrap of paper and the other with twine. I made two MFT felt (PTI harvest gold) mini rolled roses and scattered a few buttons. My sentiment is from the PTI: Love Lives Here set. I love these little vintage safety pins and thought they fit in nicely.


I also want to give a BIG WELCOME to my newest followers! THANKS so much for joining me at My Paper Tales, I appreciate each and every one of you!!! ~Lisa

What a beautiful card, and I LOVE your theme to pieces!

Nobody likes dental work! You take as many lazy, creative days as you need, girl ;). The heat is enough, all alone, to do it for me. Sigh.
