just one little card tonight

hi, guys!  i'm sorry for not having much for you lately...the time change kinda messed up my photography routine.  the best light is now an hour earlier but my "super-elaborate" setup requires Mr. Bagubian to be elsewhere while i try to shoot (he was down for his nap before the time change).  the best light now is right at lunchtime so i've been trying other avenues and they just aren't working.  so, again, even though i've been busy working on things, the photographs aren't turning out that great.

i have one card to show you tonight, using Basic Grey's Lucille collection.  i love this line--it's so feminine and fall-ish!  i'm also a sucker for anything with a sewing notions theme and this has a whole lot of it!

i added some vintage sewing pattern tissue paper pleated behind the "laugh, giggle, be silly" piece and stitched everything into place.  i also used a blue tag from the French General collection at Michael's and added a vintage cream button to it.  

lastly, i used a Lucille sticker and stitched a couple of lines onto it.  a stamped jeweler's tag and a bit of glitter glue to the roses of the patterned paper and this card was in the books!  

gosh, i feel bad for being so blog-boring lately.  please know that i am definitely working hard "behind the scenes" in preparation for the holidays.  i have so many ideas that i'd like to execute and it all takes time and planning, but if everything goes well, December should be brimming with posts!  please hang in there with me while i try to figure out this new photography situation, too (it's really frustrating!).  until then, i do have at least one more post lined up for this week...
