I have been blog hopping. I have such a large list that I try and go see these days. I don't think half of them are on my Inspiration list due to the fact that there are just so many of them. I really need to update my list for you guys. So that you can go see some of the awesome blogs out there right now. So many talented ladies, so little time.
Anyway on my usual hop I found out that Silly Monkey Crafts http://sillymonkeycrafts.blogspot.com/ are looking for a new DT member. I loved the sketch that was provided and had the very image and sentiment pop straight into mind. So I thought I would try my luck and see what happens.
Here is the Sketch:
and here is my attempt at it:
I used Groovy Guava and Sage Shadow cardstock. The DP is from Cosmo Cricket. I found it in a little scrapbook store in Fredricksburg, TX. They had it reduced to .50c a sheet so I think I took all they had left which was 9 or 10 sheets. I also tried paper piecing for the first time ever. The DP is double sided so I used the alternate side for the umbrella. I then finished the card using Prima flowers attached with silver Brads.
Thanks for looking and wish me luck.
