Crafty Sentiments Designs New Release Day 2

Morning all.

Welcome to the second day of peaks of the new stamps available from midnight (just a few hours to go) from Crafty Sentiments. I can hardly wait, I really need them all. Check out the Crafty Sentiments Inspiration blog for more details.

Today's image is called Summertime, isn't she just gorgeous? I'm saying Summertime with my tongue very firmly in my cheek cos I've got a horrible feeling that Tuesday was it... and it's back to winter again.

I've got to be honest, this is a bit of a Murphy's Law card - cos if it could go wrong with the card, it did... and I was stressing I wouldn't get it finished but there you go, I managed!

I've paper pieced her dress and just echoed the gingham with some ribbon and card candy. I think it looks vaguely summer like... maybe. I've forgotten what summer actually is.

Murphy's Law holds true for every single one of my DT cards too. But I would have never guessed that you had trouble when I saw the card. It's so cute! Thanks for sharing at Craft Your Passion. Hope to see you again.
