I’m supposed to be doing 20 other things this morning, but it’s time to post my Just For Fun card in collaboration with my JiFFy friends: Alli Miles (a bit later today), Carole Burrage, Julie Campbell and Michele Boyer. (Sweet Kim is taking the month off, but she’ll be back!)
Each month someone secretly picks patterned paper while another gal picks the image. Then we see what everyone comes up with. It was my turn to pick the image, and I’ve had Daisy for several months, just sitting here waiting for some love. I was delighted with Michele sent us Pink Lemonade from Basic Grey. They worked so well together.
Daisy is colored with Copics (specific colors at the bottome) and adorned with Tiny Twinkles from Taylored Expressions on her laurel wreath. I used my machine stitching to set the paper and a cuttlebug & button flower accent. I paper pieced her shirt from a small snipped of the polka dot paper.
This may be one of my favorite stamped images of all time. I have plans to meet Karen, the owner of Sugar Nellie this week in Orlando. Meeting people I work with for the first time face to face is one of my favorite things about CHA.
As for that swim meet I was off to on Friday – here’s a shining moment from my weekend. This was the 50 meter breaststroke where my sweet little daughter set a new personal best.
Here’s the finish. Love that girl!
See you from Orlando!
