Good Things Come in Little Packages
After coming in to rest, I thought of this new stamp I just received from My Favorite Things, Pure Innocence Little Gardener. She is so cute in her little overalls and holding her potted plant. Looks a lot like me, (chuckle, chuckle) when I was younger. I used to help my Grandfather plant his garden, he had a small plot where he planted anything he could find seeds for. He grew beans, and squash, corn and okra, radishes and cucumbers, and lots of tomatoes. He loved tomatoes!
To start my card, I picked out a red base card and added a crackled green background of kraft core stock from Tim Holtz. I also had a scrap of a printed paper that had pods and flowers on it. I stamped the Little Gardener on white card stock with tuxedo black Memento Ink and colored her in with my Copic Markers. I then fussy cut around her and used foam tape squares to pop her up on the right hand side of the card. I cut out a title strip die shape and then stamped the Memory Box sentiment, "good things come in tiny packages" on water color paper and shaded around the edges. I then used a twinkly pack of little critter bugs to rub on as accents to my card. Adding a brown checked ribbon and knot vertically completed my card.
I am entering this card in the Fun Friday "It's a Bug's Life Challenge".
This card could be used for celebrating Mother's Day, because everyone knows that little children and little packages always mean a lot to Mothers. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I will see you again next week. Take care!
