Hi - hope everyone had a good weekend.  I had a very productive weekend as far as card making goes.
I have all my 3 cards done - woohoo!  I don't think I have ever been that far ahead!

I think what had me going gung-ho this weekend, was I had some new papers in the house.  Yes, some new 6x6 pads of MME- Paper Pickle had 5 of the 7 that were released  in the store, and guess what, yes I bought all 5 - see, I have a paper addiction.  I just couldn't make up my mind, and I knew if I just bought a couple I would regret it once I got home.

My image I'm using today is called Sadie by Mo Manning in rubber through Stamping Bella.
I thought she would fit the bill just right using one of the new MME papers called Dilly Dally - love the wood grain paper, plaids and polkadots.  Here she is, what do you think?

 I started by stamping her on bella's bestest paper using black memento ink.  I paper pieced her apron and kerchief, the rest was coloured with Copics.  I also did the shading around her with primsacolour pencils.
After triming the image, I sponged some baja breeze ink around her. Used an EK success scallop border punch for the plaid piece along side her and also used a MFT die for the strip across the middle.
Finished up with a red bow.

Thanks for stopping, see you on Wednesday. Till then....

Pauline your paper piecing is perfect! (try saying that 10x fast - lol) This is so gorgeous! Love how it all goes together so beautifully. Love that MME paper... I'm still waiting for my LSS to get it in.

This is just darling! Love the paper and details and, of course, the super cute image. I need something to get me going. I've been dragging my feet in regard to stamping. I have nothing this week at all!
