Lawn Fawn Love

Poor hubs didn't sleep well last night due to Lucy's snoring.  I actually found him on the couch when I woke up this morning.  Poor guy said he ran out of sock bombs, and gave up and went to the couch to escape.

The three of us hit up the mall early this morning to do a little walking and window shopping.  We also contemplated getting G's picture taken with Santa until we saw the 309,384 mile long line.  I decided I'll be taking him at some point during the week when it's likely to be less crowded. I also wanted to get Epic Mickey for our Wii, but the $49.99 price tag stopped me.  I'll ask someone for it for Christmas.

This is a random bit of information, but I am finding it extremely annoying that I cannot find a nice pair of yoga pants to save my life. About 5 years ago I got the best pair from Old Navy.  Sadly, they have a hole in the crotch that I believe is beyond repair.  I have looked at Old Navy, Lady Foot Locker, and Target and have not tried on a single pair that I am happy with.  They are either are way to long (it stinks being short), or make my butt look awful. It's quite frustrating, so any suggestions are welcome!

When we got back I made more ribbon in a new colors, so that was fun.  I also finished up this lovely card I started yesterday.  I made it in honor of my new interest in sewing. In fact, I asked for a new sewing machine for Christmas since my little one just about blew up when I made that flannel blanket. I used Lawn Fawn's Sew Lovely set, it was perfect!  I used the little needle stamp to make my own little patterned paper (the strip of melon berry cardstock). I'm pretty much in love with all of their sets.  I sent Hubs a little email with the link to their website and a list, let's hope he gets the hint.

Tonight we have a Christmas party, so that will be fun. For now, I am off to crochet a moose for a special order...wish me luck!

  1. Love the pink girly ribbon around the stamped image is really cute and the little pearl accent is just the perfect finishing touch.

  2. Girl I am ALL about Yoga pants and I am SHORT!!! I just bought a pair from Gap Body and they are so perfect. The best part is that they put stitching on 3 different levels and you can cut them yourself to your height. I cut to the 2nd one and they are perfect and now they just roll up on the bottom naturally and they are a really great taupe color so they look great with my black tee shirts and the black ones look great with everything else....... so there problem solved :) And now the card~~ LOVE IT ....... your wrinkle ribbon is great!!! Enjoy your Christmas party!!!

  3. I love your "girly" card. So cute.

    Wow, little Lucy's snoring wakes up hubs. Too funny about the sock bombs.

    Lucy is so cute. Every time I see her picture I want to reach through the monitor and pet her -- her nose is so cute.

  4. Love the card... just got my first sewing machine and trying to learn the basics. Maybe you might be someone I can ask for help :-) (right??)

  5. Love how you used the wrinkle ribbon around your image. It's perfect! Very cute card!

  6. This is really beautiful, Danielle. I LOVE how you made your own patterned paper with the needle. Great color combo, too.

    I adore Lawn Fawn stamps and I've had this set on my wishlist forever.

  7. This is SOOOOOOOO pretty!!! I love what you did with the wrinkly ribbon - JUST LOVE IT!!!

  8. Lovely card, I love the soft color and the feminine ruffle of the wrinkle ribbon.
