Blackberry's garden party

Happy Tuesday my friends!
Sure the rain is still falling here but the day is a bit brighter just knowing that I have Glee to look forward to tonight... woot, woot! :)

So the Review Preview of the Sweet November Flitter Friends is up today over at the ATS blog and I'm joining in the fun! Little Miss Blackberry has been quite insistent about getting on another card lately so this was the perfect excuse to grant her wish. ;)

I really wanted to use this fun banner paper from The Girls' Paperie Kitch line (LOVE these papers but SO wish that TGP would start shrinking the patterns down to 6x6 pads for us card makers) and because of the red in the print I decided to color up the berries more like raspberries. Once I had done that, the scene looked as though Blackberry had managed to crash one of Raspberry's fabulous garden parties... they are the event of the season ya know! It sure doesn't look like that little ladybug minds her company though so party crasher or not I'm sure she will enjoy an afternoon visiting her pals in the raspberry patch. LOL
At least Blackberry wore her prettiest pair of bloomers for the occasion... I ended up paper piecing them from one of the small banners on a scrap piece of the paper. The prints inside the banners are a perfect small size already... still, I will keep my fingers and toes crossed that The Girls' Paperie people join the 6x6 bandwagon sooner rather than later. ;)

Alrighty, don't forget that all of the new Flitter Friends are now available in the ATS store along with all their other Sweet November pals!
