A little birdie told me.

Hello all!
         Hope the heat has now cooled off where you are - phew, what a humid week that was here in New Jersey and in Pennsylvania, where we just spent a few days 'junktiquing'.  I managed to pick up a few treasures and we also got to go to a Drive In movie which was so much fun!  It was one of those typically American things that we, as Brits, just had to do.  We saw 'Despicable Me 2' - loved the first one and this was just as funny, especially all the Minions :)
      Anyway, back in NJ and I've been busy doing up some small pieces of furniture which means the card-making has taken a bit of a back seat.  I did manage to get a CAS card done with a lovely stamp from Jane Davenport, available from Stamping Bella.  I stamped the image onto my card base and again onto some old dictionary paper so I could paper piece her dress and just added some Copics colouring to finish her off.   Such a simple card but so effective - I love taking back views photos of people so this stamp was a must for me and is one of my current favourites!




    I would like to enter this into the challenges at  613 Avenue Create , One Stitch at a Time , The Crafter's Cafe , Creative Creations and Through the Craftroom Door




Thanks so much for popping in!
