Aprons!



The Apron series of images from Lockhart Stamp Company always make me think of the wonderful hostesses we all encounter. I love using these images on hostess gifts as well as thank-yous for the special people who put up with you.

This new Ric Rac Apron was a lot of fun to put together. I started by paper-piecing in a portion of the apron (the stripes, from a Memory Box paper), then stamped the image again onto pink cardstock. I added some tone-on-tone coloring with Copic markers, then cut it all out. Once I mounted it onto white cardstock, it takes on a dimension while still being flat (a great trick for cards that you put in the mail!). I think it makes a perfect way to say thank you to someone who opened their home to you!

Have a great day! Be well.
