Blog Candy Winners & SAB Day 5

Holy cow - why didn't anyone bug me?!?!?! I totally forgot to post a blog candy winner!!!!!!!!!!! Stupid flu! Ok, so since I was such a horrible person, EVERYONE who posted a comment on that thread is the winner! Send me an email at with your address and your favorite Stampin' Up! color, and I'll send you a surprise box of goodies.
Ok, now to the card I made yesterday... A friend of mine is a crafter, but she is a sewer, not a paper crafter. So, I had to show her that I could sew too...

Stamp Sets: Simple Friendship, Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel
Ink: Not Quite Navy, So Saffron
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Delicate Dots DSP (SAB)
Accessories: Clips Assortment, Chocolate Chip Tafetta ribbon, Certainly Celery Twill ribbon (SAB), Kraft Courderoy button, Pop dots, Scor-Pal (to crease "pocket")
Punches: 1 3/4" Circle, Crop-a-Dile
Big Shot: Scallop Circle Bigz die, Scallop Circles # 2 Bigz die
Here's a little trick that I just HAPPENED to get right... I started my "sewing" at the last hole on the scalloped circle before the folded down flap. Once I went all the way around, I was able to cut the ribbon off the roll and finish it on the flap, and then both ends went in to the button. I also did not sew the last hole on the flap. It's under the button, anyway, so you can't see it. I hoped I explained that right... if not, let me know, and I'll post some pictures to better explain it. I saw Jarod do this at convention in 2006 and hadn't done it until today. He showed it on the scallop circle punch... this circle is a tad more friendly, since it's bigger. In any event, my friend LOVED it, and she said it was just what she needed, as she has been feeling down. YEAH!!! Mission accomplished.
Reminder - those of you who commented on the Blog Candy post, email me your address ASAP!
