My stamping mojo is slowly returning since the holidays. Sometimes I come in here with the desire to stamp, but I look around the room and can't think of anything that I want to make. Over the weekend, I set out to make a card for mamaw. It seems that I have slowed down on sending cards to her, although not intentionally. I visit once a week--not the same day each week--which makes it difficult to find the right day to put a card in the mail so that she'll receive it between visits. My sewing machine was still on the table, ready to use, so I knew that my card for mamaw would have some sewing. This is what the front of the card looked like . . . very, very simple in design:
But the inside had a neat 3D paper-pieced pop-up chair in a pretend living room, complete with a neat embossed rug and an outdoor scene visible from the window.
The sentiment (which happened to be so perfect) was attached to the chair with a vintage brad.
