The Craft's Meow Grand Opening!

Little-Frieda-Smile

Hello blogging friends! I'm so excited to be sharing this card with you today, as it is for the Grand Opening of my dear DT sister, Lisa Hjulberg's Store.... the Craft's Meow! This has been a dream of Lisa's for a long time and it is finally coming to fruition! Be sure to visit the Craft's Meow Blog for lots of fun!

This adorable little image is made exclusively for the Craft's Meow. This sweet little girl is Little Frieda, and the name of this stamp set is Little Frieda's Daisy. Isn't she adorable? Lisa named this stamp after her Mom! You can read all about it on the blog!

I paper pieced her dress and hat band with my new Prima dp, Sparkling Spring. I used my Grand Calibur to cut the Grand Scalloped Square (#3) and the Grande Square. I also cut the Lacey Circles (largest) in the same pass with the grand scalloped square! Gotta love that big platform! My pink matting is Papertrey Sweet Blush, and the Blue mat is a scrap of Soft Sky (SU!). The ribbon is Martha Stewart and the flowers are ZVA Creative. The little tag has one of the sentiments in this sweet set stamped on it with Memento Ink. I adhered my scalloped square to a white base which allowed me to not have to cut off any of the pattern for the top fold.

You really need to hop on over to Lisa's new store, The Craft's Meow and check out the great things she has there!

I am entering this into the following challenges: Catch The Bug - Baby/Child, Really Reasonable Ribbon - must include ribbon, Send a Smile for Kids - Anything Goes, Sugar Creek Hollow - Anything Goes, Fashionista Friday - aquamarine, Stamp Something - something sweet, C.R.A.F.T. - Paper Piecing, Charisma Cardz – Use Die Cuts, Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything Goes, Paper Play - Embossing, Shelly's Images - Show us What you Got, Southern Girls - Use Flowers, Stamping Vacation - N - Nestabilities, Gingerloft - Die Cuts or Punches, Let's Ink It Up - Die Cuts or Punches, Paper Sundaes -Embossing

Thanks so much for looking!
