Sweet n' Sassy!

This is my first card using the ever so cute, Sweet n' Sassy Stamp set, Pond Pals. You will have to check out Splitcoast, because Korin has an ad there for her awesome line! Anyway, getting back to the card, I decided to create a "scene" which is totally out of my comfort zone. (Also do you see that dang KI Memories paper? I keep using it cuz scraps of it are hanging around my desk! I think I have finally used ALL of the polka dot paper!) I stamped the pussywillows (Oh , Simone get your mind out of the gutter!), water lily, dragonflies, and duck, colored them with my Copics, and cut them out. I used pop dots to give everything dimension. I pulled out my handy dandy sewing machine and went stitch crazy! (Can you tell we watch A LOT of Blues Clues in my house? ) I hand cut my sun and stitched that too. My scene was now complete.......and yes, this card DID take many hours to create........I am definitely not a speedy stamper! Hope you like it!

Now I can't stop laughing.
Wow, what a card!
You should make up these little scenes and put them in little 3D frames girl...they would totally sell. Imagine how cute that would be for a baby's room...keep that idea, I got more. LOL
(ps..Max and I are still giggling about your balls...LOL)
