A Friend Like You

(** Scroll down for my All That Scraps post **)

Good morning friends.  The Simply Sassy stamps were some of the first Sugar Nellie stamps I ever colored and I still adore these images.  So I pulled out my Butterfly Girl stamp and inked her up.


Doesn't she have the cutest expression on her face?  She's colored with copics and colored pencils.  The paper is Pebbles' 6 x 6 pad Sunny Side.  I ran across this pad in my local Hobby Lobby the other day.  My HL never seems to have any of the newer papers so I was really surprised to find this one.  The sentiment was actually part of the paper pad so I just cut it out and layered it on the cardstock.  The corner banner and butterflies are from CC Cutters.  I added a doily and some pearls to the butterflies.  Butterfly Girl is not in stock right now but I'm sure Funky Kits will have her back in stock soon.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

Cute cute - now tell me what that banner is - I haven't seen a "rounded" one like that and I LOVE it!

How perfect the verbiage was part of the papers - can't beat that.

Adorable coloring!
