More Fun at Classy Cards 'N Such

I hope that this blog post finds you all having a blessed and relaxing weekend.  For those of you who work outside the home, I know that weekends are often filled with piles of laundry, a long list of errands, and trying to spend quality time with family.  I remember those years all too well, and my hat goes off to you "working Moms".  Although, I will also say that those of us who have the luxury of staying at home are also hard workers, and always seem to have more things to do than we have hours in the day.  Hopefully, you will all still find the time to "get your craft on" this weekend.  And when you do, I encourage you to check out Classy Cards 'N Such where you are SURE to find some lovely products for your cards, projects and scrapbook pages.
As I mentioned before, I've been asked to design for Classy Cards 'N Such for two months this summer, and because I'm SO in love with their lovely products and super sweet bunch of designers, I want to stay on FOREVER!  So, if you enjoy the cards I make using their sweet products, please stop by their blog and leave a comment to let them know you're enjoying my work (hopefully they'll keep me around!)  Here is a link to the blog where this card is posted, and you can leave a comment here:  Classy Cards 'N Such Blog.
Karen Letchworth for Classy Cards 'n Such
I used several of the sweet products from Classy Cards 'N Such including these adorable patterned papers from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 Paper Pad that I machine stitched together.   I also inked the edges with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Barn Door Red (these awesome ink pads are on clearance in the store and they are MUST HAVE items).  The rub-on sentiment is from Melissa Frances, and it is placed on a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen Die-Cut.  I also used some hand-dyed Seam Binding.  I will be sharing a tutorial on the Classy Cards 'N Such Blog very soon to show you all how to make your own dyed seam binding, and the store will be carrying the Glimmer Mist you will need to make your own hand-dyed seam binding.  Watch for the new products being posted this weekend!  I finished off the card with some of the super sweet paper flowers by Zva Creative in Classic Red and Olive Green.  These flowers are offered in many colors and at a great price, and are the highest quality with the lovely long green wire stems.  You will LOVE them!
