Hello! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you are enjoying a lovely August day! Kristen, myself and all our kids are off to Maine to the beach today. Hopefully we'll have a nice sunny, but not too hot day. That's not the forecast....but that's what I am hoping for!! LOL!
This Tilda stamp came in the Summer Stamp Kit from Sweden....but I cannot find her individually for sale anywhere else...including at the Magnolia Sweden website. So I have no idea what her name is or where you can get her if you didn't purchase the Summer Kit. I thought she was adorable....looks to me like she might be daydreaming! But I didn't quite know what to do with her. So I am taking a chance and hoping that she looks like she stopped for a rest in the strawberry field and is dreaming away. That is what I am going for anyhow. I hope that she doesn't look like to you that she is 1/2 girl and 1/2 strawberry. :) I used white flowers with yellow centers to embellish, hoping to emulate the strawberry flowers in the pic. I used this week's Friday's Sketchers sketch for my layout. This sketch was another one that I looked at and thought: "hmmmmm.....I am not sure about this one". But it always seems that I end up liking the final result. I know I say this all the time, but that is the great thing about various challenges....It's not your normal comfort zone, but you end up liking it! It's like when we were kids and insisted that we hated a certain food before we'd even try it....then loving it after giving it a try! hahaha
Onto the Blog Yummies!! I just want to thank you all for coming by to check out what I make and especially for all the encouraging comments that you leave! It REALLY MEANS A LOT to me that you want to come by and see what I made and that you take the time to let me know what you think. To show my appreciation I bought something that I think you will like. I was buying a set for me and added a second set in for you. (And a 3rd set in for Kristen! LOL!)
As I just ordered it a few days ago and don't yet have them in my hot little hands, I totally admit to swiping this picture off of "MickeyDee's" blog. Thanks MickeyDee!! It's a great picture of both the Martha Stewart Loop Border punch and the Loop Corner Punch AND what using them together produces. I can hardly wait to get them in my own hot little hands!!
