Garden Party for August 12

Can we just pretend its Tuesday the 12 and not Wednesday the 13th?


When does school start?!! While its nice to have time with the kids, and I like not have to scramble to get everyone out the door in the morning - a big part of me is ready for a regular schedule again!


Anyway - it is Garden Party time, and this is the inspiration photo from last week.


And, I'm excited to say that Tiffany played along with not one but two cards! You can see her card based on the umbrella HERE. Check out all the stitching - I love it. I could never get it so straight and perfect.


And you can see her card based on the little girl HERE. I think she captured the garden feel of the little girl's outfit wonderfully.

Thanks Tiffany for playing along!


Well, here is my attempt. I was going to just use the umbrella for my inspiration, but then I thought about one of the little girl stamps in the Kids at Play kit and I just had to use her. I love all those vintage little kids.

I guess in my mind she matches the shape of the little girl and the card matched the colors of the umbrella?

And I tried to use some of the Prima's in my stash. I'm never very comfortable with the Primas - don't know why....

I pierced the strip at the bottom with my new Tim Holtz Design ruler. I love that thing! I know its silly to love a ruler - but I do! (maybe because its still bright and shiny?)


So, here is the picture for next time. This card won't be posted till August 26.

I'm taking a little summer vacation blog break next week. Well, I'll try to - we'll see if I can't resist sneaking in a post or two....

So you have plenty of time to play along if you want to. Just post a comment here with a link to your card.
