Sew Special

Anyone know who Special Agent Oso is? The opening song goes: "he's Oh so special." Just made me think of him when I put my title for this post...yeah, I think I hang out with my 3 year old too much.

So, every now and then I pull out a Cricut cart (at random) and look through it and make something. It's kind of a personal challenge. So last night I pulled out Happily Ever After. I didn't really want any of the characters, so I went with an Icon.
This uses the JaqGus Icon at 2 1/2". I did some shading and added real pink thread. The papers are Pink Petticoat (digipapers that I just LOVE!). 3 buttons from my stash (probably considered vintage), nesties and Lipstick Ranger Ink. Of course, some sewing. And boy did I make a MESS with the glue! But I cleaned it up as best as I could.
This is going to my ma who put in an "order" for 6 cards to send to friends. I especially like this because it's so versatile:

Sew Special
Sew Grateful
Sew Much Fun

The layout is Card Positioning Systems CPS181. Thanks so much for stopping by!
