The 3 C's, and a new outlook

OK, so here's my new outlook....I'M NOT GOING TO STOP UNTIL I GET A CARD IN THE TOP TRIO AT 365 CARDS!!!!!! I know, ambitious huh? But I swear I've made some cool cards that people said should have been in the top trio for 365 cards, but I just can't seem to get one there... so... I'm making it my mission!

Here's my first attempt. The card challenge from 365 today is to include the 3 C's, circle, cream color, and cross stitch. I got it!! The circles are the brads at the top of the black paper, the cream color is obviously the card stock, and (Yes Rose I did go old school here) the cross stitch is the sentiment. I know that I always complain about not being able to do some of the things that Pam challenges us to do (i.e. whip stitching!!!!) but I can cross stitch! I made this one especially for this challenge... just sat down, found a scrap and some threads, and voila! A cross stitch sentiment (bows) yes, yes, I know, thank you, thank you! hahahaha (pats self on back) I just wanted to go clean and simple here so that the recipient could enjoy the cross stitch and not a bunch of embellishments to get in the way. I hope you like it! Have a great day.... now it's off to register my little guy for preschool! Yeay!
