I made up my mind when I was a young girl...I've been given this one world...I won't worry it away...

Morning, y'all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We had fun, ate too much, and played with the baby donkey at my mom's. He's so fun...just like a little puppy right now. He wasn't too sure of the mud after all the rain, so as he ran, he would fling his back legs trying to get the mud off. It was pretty funny to watch!

So I have a fun treat for you's Whipper Snapper Release Day! Anna has whipped up three FANTASTIC sets for you this time, and all of the Featured Designers and Anna herself are showing off some cool samples today.

The card I have to show you today uses the Simply Bloom set. You all should know by now how much I love handwritten-type sentiments, and this one had me drooling from day one!

The second I saw this set, I wanted to use the sentiments as a stem for the flower. Originally I intended this card to be portrait, but as I was working on it, I laid the main panel sideways and ended up liking it better that way. The images were all stamped in Stazon on watercolor cardstock and colored with my reinkers and a waterbrush. I did use my Stamp-a-majig to line everything up just right. Then I cut the image out with my long rectangle Nestabilities...I knew they would come in handy someday! *grin* A little lace, stitching, and sponging on the Soft Sky layer (I love how Baja Breeze ink looks when you sponge it on the edges of Soft Sky), and a button in the center of the flower finished it off just right. It has a real homespun feel, I think.

Here are all the sets for your viewing pleasure. Simply Bloom, Chicken's in the Kitchen, and What's Cookin'...aren't they awesome?

I will post more eye candy with the other two sets over the next week, but in the meantime, you can check out the rest of the fabulous Featured Designers to see what they have to wow you!
