FWF Good things...

Hello!  Hooray, it's Friday!  This is a card I made for yesterday's What To Use challenge over on SCS.  The challenge was to make an uplifting card for someone.  The big oval stamp is from February's in store kit, and the sentiment is from my Unity stash, but I believe it is the Simply Said set.  The ric-rac and cross stitch die cuts are from K&Co's Handmade collection.  I added some jute twine, blue button and hemp twine to finish it off.  I distressed the edges of the oval with a pair of scissors since I couldn't find my distressing tool.

I am super excited because our carpet is being installed in our basement today!  That means I can officially move into my studio space downstairs this weekend!  It is almost embarrassing how much STUFF I have that I haven't used and probably will never use.  I have learned to be a more selective buyer of papercrafts over the past couple of years, but I still buy way too much!  I will probably be adding more supplies to my FOR SALE section soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
