Patriotic Pillows

Hello all and Happy June 30th! I'm a little late on my Fourth of July projects, but I was finally able to put together a couple envelope style pillow cases.  I've been inspired by Flamingo Toes who is sewing her stash and decided I too could make some pillows with what I already have on hand!
I used Cricut's George and Basic Shapes for the stars at 3" and 6".  I had the bandana material with just enough for these two pillows.  There literally was nothing left.  The jean stars are from the cut off portion from pants turned into shorts.
These took less than an hour from start to end - I did have to re-thread my serger and that probably took two hours!  I love em!  I think I'll keep these out for the whole month.  I will be sharing these with the following linky parties: Keeping It Simple, Flamingo Toes, Free Pretty Things For You , Skip to my Lou and Make it and Love it.

Sign Girl with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all and Happy Thursday!  Today I'm sharing a card using a new release from Bugaboo Stamps: Lil Girl Sign It!
She sort of has a concerned look on her face, but it's still darling.  This is already on it's way to my Aunt who is terminally ill.  It doesn't seem quite real that she might not be with us in a year.  Anyway, hopefully this will brighten her day a little.

Martian Birthday with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello and Happy Saturday!  This week at Catch the Bug, the challenge is: Anything Goes!
Always a favorite!  I'm featuring Martian Planet from Bugaboo Stamps for my quirky card.  It's actually a birthday card, but it looks more like a little guy's card doesn't it?  Oh well.  It's already in the mail.  BTW, I've mailed out 16 cards so far this year!  I think I've missed a couple in my count, but hopefully I have brightened the day of a friend or two.
