Enjoy it


I made this card using a really beautiful image from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection by Elisabeth Bell called Summer Ice Cream.  It is a new August release stamp available now at Whimsy Stamps.

I just love this stamp it is so very sweet!  It was lots of fun to colour too!


I paper-pieced the two patches on her jeans with the same paper I used for the background.  I cut that into squares too and zigzag stitched it to mimic the sewn patches.

I would like to enter the Sizzling Summer Days challenge at Elisabeth Bell’s World  with this card too.  I have only just discovered this challenge blog and it looks like it has lots of inspiration there.
