Hi it's me! And a DD Challenge

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. My daughter, Lisa, has been home this week for spring break, love having her around whenever I can, it is the first day of spring and my wedding anniversary. Definitely classifies as a good day!

I cannot believe I only have one month left on the Dirty Dozen. It has gone so fast and I am frankly still in awe at being included in this group of stampers. This is my take on the March Dirty Dozen and Dirty Dozen Alumni Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge is hosted by Joanne and she challenged us to use either a bird or a bee in a project and the restricted element is no border bunches. You will find the rest of the DD girls projects in this gallery.

I am using on of my new Pure Innocence Stamps that I still had not had a chance to ink up, Happy Mail. She is colored with copics and her dress is paper pieced. The paper is from my new BG Kioshi paper pad. I added some stitching with my sew machine, a rhinestone bird and accents, and ribbon. The sentiment is from the PI set Heart Stripes.

Here is look at the inside.

Thanks for stopping by!
