Just a little cutie pie!


Happy Monday everyone!

Today I just felt like having some fun with a real feminine color scheme! This reminds me of my daughter's room when she was little. I love these soft colors together... and I don't think I'll ever get too old to love them! LOL!

This was for the Penny Black Blooming Beautiful Challenge this week. It also is for the CCEE catchy name challenge here. Charlene chose the name Flowergal36 as the catchy name on SCS and the gals were to create a card around that name. Well... this has flowers and not only that but it has a cute image which is the style my friend Dawn loves... so here's to you Dawn!

The base is Certainly Celery, the Nesties frame is Pretty in Pink, and the dp is DaisyD's. I love this pack of paper! The ribbon is Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink and the pearls are Hero Arts from the Our Daily Bread Store. I added Stickles to the flowers and the bee's wings are Shimmerz Angel Wings. I used my new Bow Easy for the bow. It's my first shot at it and I'm not sure I got it perfect... maybe I should have practiced first like the directions said! LOL! Oh well... it is a neat tool and for $6.oo how could you go wrong? They are back in stock at Sharon Johnson's No Time To Stamp site.

I hope you have a blessed evening! It's so hot here there's not much else to do but stamp! I finished my grocery shopping and after dinner, I think that's what I'll be doing...stamping! I need to work on Father's Day cards!

Grace - that bunny is the sweetest!! Great job coloring :)

I think I saw the neatest bow tool a few weeks ago at a SCS get together - all you need is a plastic fork!!!! It makes the neatest little bow - amazing :)

*thud!* Okay, now I need to dust myself off . . . Grace this is gorgeous! Have I mentioned I like bunnies? Have I mentioned I'll have another birthday in . . . only 11 months? :) This is gorgeous! I wish I were stamping, I am here in Iowa with DS for his college orientation. . . . maybe that comment doesn't belong in a blog comment . . . but then where would I say it? :) Okay, going now, lovely card!

Gorgeous card, Grace! I love your scrolled frame, double layered ribbon, and especially the colors. They were in our second DD's bedroom when she was a child--a real cottage look. Blessings!
