Leisel and her Wheelbarrow

Hello all!  I hope you have been enjoying your week! 

I’ve been absent here the past few days as we were on vacation to Cedar Point in Ohio.  We had a great time but it’s always alot of work getting ready and then unpacking too, isn’t it?  LOL.  I am told that the roller coasters were great!  (I’ll keep my feet firmly on the ground, thank you very much!) ha ha.

So while I was gone, the previews for the GREAT new sets for August started over at All That Scraps!  I’ll start playing catch-up with this new Swiss cutie named Leisel and her Wheelbarrow.  I love her and the new Heidi stamp is awesome too!

Last week I was asked to make a baby shower gift.  The baby shower was in 3 hours!  Eeeek!  But I couldn’t say no, so my mind was thinking about what I had on hand to create.  Thankfully I had this frame tucked away to be used for a name frame, and she knew the mom was having a girl and naming her Jillian.

I immediately thought that Leisel with her wheelbarrow would look cute with the Martha Stewart Picket Fence punch to create a scene.  I was wishing I had more time though.  I would have stamped a soft background on the blue and maybe add a few tiny words.  I also would have finished the little Primas with some Stickles or Liquid Pearls.  But there was no way it would have had time for that to dry….the frame was finished 5 minutes before it went out the door!  LOL.

Here’s a close-up of Leisel:
