Good Luck

A Day for Daisies is offering some free digistamps and this sweet little pixie was perfect paired with Graphic 45's gorgeous "Once Upon a Springtime."  I love it when a project comes together so quickly!   There's some paper piecing on her dress, cap, flowers and shoes and I popped her voluptuous wings.  Tammy's images have that vintage feel...I love that they're simple but not cartoony. She has some really adorable animal and holiday images in her Etsy shop just now, and even though I normally wouldn't pay $4 for a digistamp, there's a darling Santa's list image that I'm predicting I will end up buying.   What can I say...I'm weak. 

Good Luck Pixie digistamp by A Day for Daisies; Bazzill CS; Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime; Spellbinder Oval, Magnolia Doohickey flourish die,  Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, EK edge punch, MS butterfly punch, Prismacolor pencil/gamsol, Kaisercraft pearls, Liquid pearls, ribbon, SU dimensional.

Happy Tuesday, my friends!
Kathy xoxo
