FMS400 Congrats

Happy Monday, everyone!  A real quick post today, Cassidy is back from camp and I am babysitting Lee and Jackie as well, so it will be a full house!  I wanted to squeak in a card for the latest FMS challenge---they're celebrating 400 posts!! Woohoo!  That Lesley, she was the queen of challenges for sure!  They are going retro and bringing back the very first sketch they offered:

My card is a congratulations card for another recruit that signed up, and I've let the Mosaic Mood DSP do most of the work:

My first step was to emboss part of the card base with the Subtle embossing folder.  Then I chose two of the patterns, die-cut them to size with stitched dies, and backed them with Soft Suede mats; I fussy-cut one of the butterflies from the paper and popped it up on a stitched circle:

It's also coated with Wink of Stella, which you can't see, but it's very pretty in real life!  After stamping my sentiment from Flourishing Phrases, a few metallic pearls were added for the final embellishments!  Off it will go in the mail today!

Dana posted a few pix of Cassidy learning how to make a blanket with a new type of yarn called Loopy; apparently you can make knit stitches without any needles!  She is already planning how to sell them, LOL!!!  Dana is an accomplished (and self-taught) crocheter, so I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Gorgeous card LeAnne - another fabulous mosaic dsp creation! Congratulations on your recruit too - feel free to share any tips, I could do with one or two of those too! Cassidy’s blanket looks really interesting- I’ve heard of this no-needle knitting and I’m quite intrigued. I would love to see a photo of her with the finished blanket when she’s done. Have a great day!
