You're too sweet!

 Happy Monday! First of all I would like to thank all of you who left sweet birthday messages on my facebook page....the kind words were so nice! So.....in honor of that "sweetness" I decided to pull out a retired set from MFT that is still one of my favorites....so if you have this set...lucky you!
I colored up the little lime wedge on the card using a YG21, YG93 copic color combo (I quite like it). 
I have seen these adorable felt coasters all over ebay and etsy so I decided to make a few for myself....
 If you look close you will recognize that I used the Banner Day Die from My Favorite Things for the fruit wedges....so much easier than cutting perfect triangles myself! I hand stitched some embroidery floss and then blanket stitched the edge as I used 2 circles for each coaster to give it a little more weight.
Here is some pure handmade sweetness. My kids and my niece blessed me with some handmade cards for my birthday....these I truly treasure!

I am totally looking forward to the end of this week where I can start sharing some new stamp release teasers with you....and some other neat posts coming your way this week too! Until then :)

Very cute coasters! It's actually very easy to cut the triangles though! Just die cut a circle smaller (maybe 3/8-1/2") than the one you used for the main part of the coaster then cut it in half, then each piece in thirds. Doesn't have to be too perfect because real fruit segments vary in size. When you sew them on, spread them out so there is space between each segment. Then the segments not only are the perfect size but they have a nice rounded outside edge too. HTH!
