Happy girl...





     Greetings to you all! Feel like I have not been around much.   I am a bit of a frazzled wreck ..feeling out of sorts.  Winter blahs I suppose...even though it isn't officially Winter yet. So I have been grabbing the chocolate.  It cures everything right? 
                                       I am always happy though when I get to share Pink Persimmon   goodies with you.   A good way to cheer one up!   The first card was made using Happy Girl  and Vintage greetings stamps.   I love anything to do with sewing.  Reminds me of my  Mom.  Something so homey and warm about it.  I love the Happy girl stamp (including the name)....so many things you can do with it....fill the inside with buttons, flowers, another stamped image.  So fun!  I kept mine soft and feminine.  I fussy cut her little dress to add a bit of detail.  Added a few little touches..ribbons, tiny millinery flowers, and my sentiment.    The other card uses what may just be my all time favorite stamp...sweet heart silk card .  The size of it is larger and makes a great backdrop for other things.   I chose to wrap mine with lots of yummy seam binding...kinda mimicking silk embroidery thread.  I added a big rose cabochon and vintage stick pin..and couldn't help but add a mini tag with a stamped cameo image from the mini silhouette set for a bit of added vintage goodness!  Well that is it for me...can't wait to share other projects using these stamp sets!  Make sure you check out the Pink Persimmon blog for more inspiration.   I am always in awe on how others create with the same stamps and their unique take on them.   Night, night!  Hugs, cherry
