"Just Ducky" Lazing Around

EDITED:  I've been asked by so many of you how to make the flowers.  Well, I had to go back through a lot of blogs to find the tutorial and it was created by Selma at Selma's Stamping Corner.
Here is a link to her tutorial. 
Thanks Selma for the great inspiration!

Drue Cabral, DT member at There's Magic In The Air/Paper Cupcakes challenges us this week to use some type of sewing on our project. This was my  first time sewing on one of my cards cause I was always afraid it would ruin my sewing machine, but trust me, if you haven't sewed on one of your cards yet, it won't hurt your machine and didn't even dull my can barely see the yellow thread though.

This new image "Just Ducky" by Nina is soooooooo cute and if you'd like to have it, all you need to do is play along with us this week or visit the Paper Cupcakes store.  You must use an acquired image from Paper Cupcakes or the freebie from the challenge blog to be eligible to win.

Now hop on over to PCC to see the fantastic projects created by the Design Team.
This week the winner will be able to chose the image they want from the PCC store.
Don't forget to join us for the first TMIA/PCC blog hop coming August 11, 2010

My posts have been way too long lately, so to shorten them, I'm going to start leaving out the recipe.  If you would like to have it, please indicate that and be sure to leave me either your email or blog url in the comment section and I will be more than happy to share.

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope you take the time to leave me a comment so I can come over to visit you.  Have a fantastic week and be sure to join the challenge this week at PCC.
"Hugs" Granny (Carol)
