Start Each Day With Whee!

I don't have a lot of MFT Pure Innocence stamps, mostly because I don't like to color, and you have to color the faces with the PI images. But when I saw this one a few years ago, I needed it because of the sentiment:

I got past most of the coloring by paper piecing her dress, but that face! She came out splotchy since I used the wrong ink for Copics. Plus, I can't color. In spite of this, I think the sentiment makes up for all of that, don't you agree? I'm also very proud that I used scraps remnants from the Basic Grey Picadilly 6x6 pad.

I thought it needed a sun in the upper right corner, but it would be overwhelming, so I used some yellow sequins instead, and I really like how it turned out.

In other news, it's Caturday, and Bobra wouldn't let me go back to sleep this morning, so I've been up for hours. I might go to the farmers' market to get tomatoes and then come home and take a nap. We'll see.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. that is a cool sentiment. I can't color faces or hair yet, I just decided to not go there for my sanity :) Hope you get a nap in, I've been up since 6 with no reason, *yawn*.

  2. Great card! The sequins were a nice touch.

  3. I think she's adorable and the paper piecing on her dress is cute. The sunny sequins are a nice touch - I think a sun would have been too much, too.

  4. This is adorable!
    Love it! Love the paper piecing!
    And that sentiment ... cute!!

  5. The sequins are perfect!
    OMG, you know what I just realized? She is one of those perky morning people. The PI girl, I mean.
    I'm a big believer in "whee," but let's do it around 11, mmmkay?


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
