Paper Sweeties May Release Rewind!!!

Hi Friends!

It's May Release Rewind for Paper Sweeties!  So many wonderful stamp sets released this month.  They are now available for purchase!  The stamp set that is new for the month that I used on this card are the sentiments.  I used this set previously a couple days ago using the sentiment friend.  This set is from the You are the Most Wonderful stamp set.  If you recall, I stated that this set has so many possibilities for those special loved ones in your life.  Those wonderful people such as mother, father, husband, daughter, son, brother, sister, friend, teacher, and host.  It's definitely a stamp set that I'll use often!:-)

The sweet girl is Abigail and her dress and shoes are from the stamp set Enjoy Your Day.  For my card I started with a white card base and used some lovely paper from Echo Park!  I colored Abigail and paper pieced her dress and shoes.  I made a little hair bow using felt and added glitter and tied it with pearl cotton.  And, do you see that little crocheted flower?  Uh huh, I made it all by myself!  I finally found some great easy instructions to follow at this site...Scrapbookandcardstoday.  I used pearl cotton and a small crochet hook 4/3.50MM.  You'll be seeing more of my little crocheted flowers on future projects!:-)

Whew, sorry for the long post!  Please stop over at Paper Sweeties blog to check out the awesome creations from the design team!

Happy creating to you...take care, hugs!:-)
