Life Can Be Full of Surprises!

My blog has been quiet the last week and a half but I have been busy stamping away! Sometimes life just gives you some little surprises! A few weeks ago I became part of the MFT Design Team. This is a dream come true for me! And today I get share another one life's surprises, unbelievable as it seems, I am a "Dirty Girl". I am truly surprised and shocked to be one of the newest members of the Dirty Dozen. I just feel so honored and appreciative today.

If you are a member of the Fan Club at Splitcoaststampers I hope you will hop on over and see all the wonderful work in the newest gallery!

Today I am sharing a sweet birthday card I made with another one of the new Pure Innocence stamps just released by MFT, My Balloon. Isn't she adorable!

She is stamped on a MFT Perfect Panel, colored with Copics and her dress is paper pieced. The DP is My Mind's Eye. I added a little stitching, some eyelet lace, MFT Perfect Plaid ribbon, an invisible heart, and a heart button. The I took some embroidery floss, wrapped it around the card twice and threaded it through the button. The sentiment is included in the stamp set.

I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. The fact that I have a blog and people actually read it still amazes me! I appreciate your encouragement and comments.
