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.
