Thank you for your kindness

I love polkadots! So, when I walked by a consignment store on my way to do groceries on Friday and saw a big pile of fabric I just had to stop - and this is one of the many (very inexpensive) fabrics I found. Oh, I was so excited. I admit I love a bargain, especially if it is something I can play with in my craftroom! So, I came home with probably about 10 different fabrics, in varying colors and sizes and paid a whopping $4.00 for the whole lot. Woo hoo, that was fun!

I've been wanting to put some more fabric on my projects, so pulled out this polka dot as soon as I had a chance and started playing. I was inspired by this set of cards at MADE. Dana's work is so inspiring - she is always "reminding" me to use my sewing machine and even makes me want to sew clothes!!! Hmm, well that requires a little more work than these cards I dare say.
Anyhow, I am entering this card in the challenge over at Allsorts as they are looking for Hearts & flowers this week. I'll be back again tomorrow (so long as my scheduled post works!) as I have a few more challenge cards ready to go this week.
Wishing you a happy start to your work week!

What I used:
stamps: CTMH - Thank You & February Word puzzle
