Good Morning! Have you recovered from daylight saving time? I think I oversleep every year after the change. I’ve heard many people say “we should just do away with it.” I think I might agree!
So today I have a card for the latest The Paper Shelter challenge. The challenge was to add a charm to your project and/or give it a St. Patrick’s Day twist. Since I actually picked up some charms when I was in NYC the other week, adding a charm was the perfect way to go.
I decided to use Sophie in the Country — she’s so cute! I colored her up, cut her out with Labels 8 and then sponged grass & sky around her. Now, did you ever go rolling through the grass or down a hill as a kid (or maybe you still do it)? Sophie was definitely rolling in the grass, as she has some stains on her shirt and feet — in other words, I thought I could sponge closely without getting the ink on her, but I was wrong. LOL! I’ve used this layout before, actually with my first The Paper Shelter card. It’s a great way to feature some designer paper. I thought Sophie might be thinking about someone she’s missing, so I added a “Miss You” sentiment, as well as some butterflies and pearls. My charm is on my bow.
