Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge - Y is for Yardage

It is time for a new challenge over at Speedy Fox and Friends.  The challenge this week
is the letter Y.   I decided that yards or yardage would work perfect with this
Mark's Finest Paper stamp set called "I'm in Stitches".   I stamped my measuring tape and the scissors on Doodlebug paper and cut them out.   I cut the buttons from the same paper pad.  I had
a couple of mini wooden spools that was left over from when I use to do craft shows.  I had my DH go to the wood shop and split one in half to use on the card.   I wrapped some shiny cording around it for thread.  Then I added a sentiment, a flower, lace and a bow.  The spool card was cut with a Silhouette.
I hope you will come on over to the Speedy Fox Blog and enter your card in the challenge.  Also, if you have never been to Speedy TV, I hope you will take a look there.  They have a gallery filled with awesome cards.  Anyone can join and upload their cards there.  Each day there is a new challenge there.   Wow, that gives you lots of chance to enter to win  free stamps.  You will also find lots of tutorials there.

Thanks for stopping by today.
