Yours Truly

In honor of Betsy’s new Dress Up Dolls, Nicole and PTI  challenged us to create a new project that was inspired by a piece of clothing/outfit from your closet or online clothing retailer.

 I love red and gingham! Here’s a dress that I would love to have for this upcoming summer.  I own a light blue gingham dress, but in a different style.

Here’s my card:IMG_4507edited

Quite straight forward. Covered cs with washi, die cut heart, attached panel to card, stamped sentiment and XOXOs.

My card was also inspired by several other cards.

This one, by Hannelie, which I have long admired:

My card also reminds me of Joyce’s for CASology’s #184:Valentine.

I’d like to play this at CASology’s Week 184, Word Art Wednesday’s: Challenge #219: Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. My family and I are away from home now, in the Oberammergau area. (Oberammergau is a municipality in the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in Bavaria, Germany). We had been hoping for lots of snow, but the ground was bare when we got here! Two nights ago God granted our pleas and sent some snow our way. My kids went sledding yesterday and had a BALL!

See the 2 tiny snowmen that my 2 youngest girls made?
