Penny for Your Thoughts.....{TAWS}

Good Morning Everyone!!
It is my DT day over at
The Alley Way Stamps
and I have a card to share using the new release freebie stamp set for this month~
Isn't this mini set adorable??? It can be your's free with a min.. purchase over at the store :)
I wanted to play along in a few challenges so using this week's Retro Sketch

I came up with this........
I am in love with playing with the newest trend right now...sequins and when I saw this adorable card on my friend Jennie's Blog, I scraplifted her sequins stitched in a glassine bag and used it for my card....Hope she doesn't mind :)
Along with the sequins I stamped a bunch of the adorable coins and popped those into the bag as well. I then sealed with bag with some machine stitching (surprise, surprise...right?)
and added some of Trendy Twine's new color Totally White 
Here is a close-up of the bag and that adorable piggy stamp :)
I stamped her on some Bazzill cardstock and then stamped her nose again so I could pop it up....Since there is lots of bling and sparkle I added some cotton candy stickles to her as well....How adorable is she...right????
The pattern paper is from the 6x6 paper pad~Lucky Charm from the Dear Lizzy collection/
Finally I stamped the sentiment from the set and added a die cut arrow from My Creative Time's~Stitched Mini Frame and Arrow Dies

So what do you think??

  4. Awww! That is just so sweet! The piggy is adorable and your "change" is a fantastic idea!

  5. SOOO totally cute!! Love this and love all the details with the stitching. I will break out my seewing machine from the box one day!! Lord help the paper that day cause I don't know how to sew. I once tried to sew my pants while I had them on cause I ripped them on my bicycle chain (this goes back a ways!) and I sewed them to my sock. Well my sewing skills I know haven't changed!
    Love this!

    BTW.. to answer your question about the assembly of the Lori Whitlock frame, it was easier than I thought! My only suggestion would be, when you are gluing the strips around the outside of the frame, be sure you properly align the pointed part correctly and then glue that part first. :) (That should make sense when you are doing the project.) Have a wonderful day!!
