Meet Frieda!

Hey there everybody!

I've got a fun post and card to help spread the news of a fantastic new venture that my bloggin' buddy Lisa Hjulberg is embarking on today! :)

Lisa has started her own online shop, The Craft's Meow, and we are celebrating the grand opening by sharing cards that use images from her new Frieda and Friends stamp line! Lisa has named this little sweetie after her mother and you will find Frieda in three different clear acrylic stamps. There is one scene stamp and two image and sentiment sets. For my card I used Little Frieda's Daisy and one of the three sentiments included with her.
That great hat Frieda is wearing totally had me thinking of Easter... the kiddos all dressed up in their Sunday best, waiting to hunt for eggs... so I just had to go with some fun spring colors on this one. Then I wanted to play off of the daisy she is plucking by giving her a whole garden of colorful daisies to be strolling through. :)
And while it is not an official hop, be sure to check out the complete list of all Lisa's friends that are part of the celebration today over at The Craft's Meow store blog!

Now stamps aren't the only thing you will find at The Craft's Meow, Lisa has stamping cardstock and she has also put together some fabulous crafting kits! And one of the kits includes a wee stamp image and greeting from Claire Brennan of Waltzingmouse Stamps. So don't forget to take a look-see at all the fun goodies found in the store!

BIG HUGS Lisa... here's to much success with The Craft's Meow and many more adventures of Little Frieda! :)
