Lots of hugs

TGIF my fellow stampers!

I'm enjoying a nice day off today and after I take care of a few errands I plan on spending a lot of it working on some new SN images for later this summer. There are so many fun new characters in the works and I really can't wait to share them with y'all! :)

In the meantime, I've got a simple little card featuring the sweet new Annie image by Christy Croll. She is part of a small set that Christy did for Stamping Bella and I couldn't resist all of that curly hair. I don't know why but I really have so much fun coloring wild and crazy hair, LOL! And bonus... these cuties are now back in stock at ATS along with a few other previously sold out Stamping Bella stamps. So if you are in the States and have been looking for a US hook up for SB stamps then check it out!
More Stella and Rose scraps were also put to use on this card and I even paper pieced her dress as well as cut a flower out from the print for Annie to hold. I still can't get enough of these papers. :)

Alrighty, I'm outta here... have a fab Friday my friends!

Love this card - especially the way you coloured her wild & crazy hair! How do you manage to cut out things that are so tiny, like the flower stem? (Or did you cut the bloom & draw in the stem?) Hope you have a great weekend & enjoy your sunshine - it's too cold to be pleasant here still!
