Dare to dream

Happy Sunday, all! Here is a card that I made for the paper piecing challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog.


This is also a little peek of the secret Spring stamp kit - Love Bug collection. This kit will be available as singles starting March 1st.


Isn't she pretty? I masked her off and stamped the tree image (also from the same collection) behind her for a little scene.


Her dress is pieced with patterned paper from the yummy Stella and Rise Mabel collection by My Mind's Eye. I love those yummy papers! =) I used a few Copic markers and added a little shading on the dress. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Did you see the peeks on the new gnome images at the WoJ store and Katharina's blog? They are super cute, I tell ya! I am hoping to have some cards made with them for you soon. =)


Here are some simple corner bookmarks that I made for the Whiff of Joy Tutorial & Inspiration Blog. These images are also from the new Love Bug collection. Please visit this post to find out how to make these simple corner bookmarks.

That's all for today. Have a beautiful Sunday! =)
