Adorably Yours

Hello friends.  Are you having a fabulous weekend so far?  The horrible storms and stifling heat have moved on ... at least for a few days.  The weather today is gorgeous.  I love being able to spend time outdoors without feeling like I'm sitting in a sauna lol!

I have a new image to share with you today.  Whimsy Stamps has a new artist that has joined the group.  Her name is Kathryne Kittmer (StampArt Design) and this image is one of her designs.  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it ... it brings back lots of childhood memories for me :)  This image is called Raggedy Girl - Adorably Yours (Pigtails) and you can find her over in the Whimsy Stamps store.  I colored this little sweetie with copics and colored pencils.  I cut out my background mats with my nestabilities and ran it through my embossing folder.  I stitched my papers and added some ribbon and a bow.  There's no glitter, stickles, or glossy accents on this card ... can you believe it lol? 

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful!
