Perk Up Soon

Hi Friends,

I  finally managed to finish off a fourth card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - yippee.  


This cute little girl from Pure Innocence MFT Stamps has been sitting, coloured up, on my craft table for the last two weeks.  When I coloured her I had no particular card design in mind and when I sat down to create a card I drew a blank.  I must have played around with different ideas for her for two days and was going to give up. I then decided to grab some complimentary scrap pattern out of my scrap box and work with it whether I liked the result or not!  Here is the final result....I don't hate it but I don't really love it either, but I'm glad I got her on a card!

Supplies:
MFT Stamps - PI Steeped in Love (retired)
MFT Die-namics - PI Steeped in Love (retired)
Hero Arts Design Blocks - Designer Woodgrain
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle Stax
MFT Die-namics - Slanted Sentiment Strips
DoodleBug Designs - Swiss Dot Rainbow Petite Prints 6x6 Paper Pad
Wooden Heart

I would like to link up with some challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a great weekend.
