A Sketch For You To Try!

Happy Sunday Friends! I hope that you are having a great weekend!

The heat is starting to let up in New England. In fact, it has rained here all morning, but that is just fine with me! I end up with a little bit more stamping time when it rains, so I'm happy.

My niece will be starting high school in the fall. (How on earth did that happen?!?!? It seems like she was just in Kindergarten!) Her birthday is next month. I thought that this new a la mode girl would be perfect for her. I also thought that this image would work wonderfully with Jen Del Muro's July Sketch For You To Try.

My image and sentiment are from the My Favorite Things You Are Unrepeatable set. This sweet growing up girl is colored up with Copic Markers (BG11, BG13, C0, C1, E000, E00, E23, E25, R11, RV11, RV34, YG03, YG13, YG25, YG63, and the Colorless Blender) and then cut out. She is popped up with foam squares and then layered onto some papers from the Lime Twist collection from My Mind's Eye. The buttons were made with The Cat's Pajamas Button CutUps and I used some matching "Happy" twine from MME to tie everything together. A little machine stitching in the right corner finishes this one off.

Enjoy what is left of the weekend! Thank you so much for visiting with me...Toodles! :D

Your niece is going to love that card! The little lady is too too cute and the colors are wonderful too! In NC and it has been baking for almost 2 weeks now. Rain tonight I hope.
