Start each day with "whee"!

I just love this sweet little gal. This stamp set is the Pure Innocence line by My Favorite Things. She is paper pieced (every piece of her!) and her shoes have a thick coat of Diamond Glaze. IRL they look like patent leather Mary Janes. The swing is pieced with CC's Mr. Campy woodgrain paper. Her headband heart is a Hero Arts pearl. Her skin is colored with copic markers.

Wishing you Sunshine!

When I first saw this challeng I knew I wanted to try piecing this umbrella image. The image only has 3 openings for piecing so I did some extra stamping and drew in a couple lines to give me more umbrella 'panels'. Oh how I adore this October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper. The background text was stamped with PTI Background Basics Text Style. The umbrella  image and sentiment  are from the PTI Scattered Showers stamp set.

Teacher's Day Card Set

I made 2 sets of these - one for Peyton's teacher and one for the student teacher that also does a lot in the classroom. This idea is from Betsy Veldman's post on the Papercrafts Connection blog. I made mine a little larger because I want them to be able to mail these. They are an A2 size.

Wishing you the Best

I was over at a friend's and she had a roll of this very wide and beautiful lace on her table. I asked her if I could have a small piece. Isn't it pretty? I layered it over some MME reddish CS and trimmed along the edges of the lace. Sentiement is from Papertrey Ink's  Wishing You set. Thank you Nancy for the lace. You can double click for a closer view.

Friendship is the Sweetest Flower

I really like this sketch #1 layout. CS and ink is PTI Smokey Shadow and PP is Cosmo Cricket. The flower is Prima.
