New Stamps, New Toys, New Card
I'm on my Cornish Heritage Farms kick today...I'd been eyeing this Coneflower stamp for some time and now it's mine! It's such a happy image even though the coneflowers are all but gone with the rapid approach of fall but on a gloomy rainy day it's always good to "ink happy thoughts"!
What new toys you ask? Well, let me tell you - after much thought and thinking I didn't need one, I broke down and purchased the Janome Sew Mini machine. I already have a sewing maching and really don't use it much these days and when I went to use it discovered it is way overdue for a tune up. So enough procrastinating, a new machine was cheaper and faster than the tune up (don't you like my logic?). After sitting here for over a week, I broke it out of the box today. This little gem of a machine is super easy to use - sews at just the right speed for crafting - not too fast so it's a breeze to create nice straight lines on your projects - I love that!
So now that I have my new stamp and my new sewing machine I thought I'd create a new card...
