Have been wandering around to all the blogs that I love to check out, spent more time doing that then creating, but did get a couple of cards made. Paper Craft Planet has a tutorial on how to use paper towels to give texture you your card stock. Looked very interesting so had to give it a try.

It is a little hard to see but I did use the paper towel to add the texture to the background of the card. It does give an interesting effect and is simple to do, I used Chocolate Chip ink on the off white card stock.

You have to overlook the stitching, it is not straight at all, this was my first time using a sewing machine to make the stitching. Thought this would be pretty easy, but as you can see I need a lot more practice sewing on paper. Stitching on the card was a challenge at Sherrod Studios.

The layout for the card is a sketch from MOJO MONDAY Week #121. The papers used are from Lasting Impressions. A corner punch was used to add a little more interest to the sentiment and mat.

Well, it is my Monday, and going to work. Let's see what is in store for us this week. The tourist in Las Vegas is so unpredictable with the economy down. They say things might be on the upswing, or was November just a fluck.

Have a crafty day.
