Put on Your Party Dress...



I'm telling you, the sketches over at Operation Write Home are so great to use when you start to make a card. Their latest sketch challenge enticed me to use it on my sister-in-law's birthday card. It's Sketch #124 If you use it, post it there so we can all see it.

I'll be stalking Ippity's website today to see if they're having their Monday blog hop because I used my new favorite stamp, Angie Girl. I love that it's a large stamp and that it's a girly girl. So many ideas come to mind. One is to treat her like my very own paper doll. Stamp her clothes on different patterned papers, etc. We DO do this crafting thing to feel like little girls again, right? Lol.

I did a little masking with the flowers that come with Angie Girl, then found the perfect sentiment in the Unity set called Undeniably You. I'm also lovin' text papers (like this Stampin Up one) and papers that are already embossed and glittered like this one from The Snapshot Stack by DCWV. It's so new, I can't even find it on their website but if you click on DCWV that I highlighted just before, you can go see their other stacks. Love them all.

Used my favorite die of the moment, too. Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Ovals. They work perfectly with the standard oval set, yay.

Thanks for dropping in. I need to work on a card for my nephew, so I will be back soon.

Oh, and I set up an email subscription widget so if you want to know when I've posted again, sign up and it will be delivered right to your inbox! *smile*

Hi Cindy,

This card is VERY cute. Reminds me of the She Art by Christy Tomlinson.

Hugs,
