Maisie Sitting Pretty


Hello blog friends! I'm so excited to introduce you to a new LOTV character, Maisie. Isn't she just darling?! She looks like a Maisie doesn't she? Cute as a button, but a little precocious, haha!


I went with bright, summery colors for this card, again an old My Mind's Eye collection. You know what I really struggled with though? Of all the spools and spools of ribbon I have in every color of the rainbow, I did NOT have a pretty pinkish red! Not even close. Imagine that. So what did I have to do? Dye my own. It's not as dark as I wanted, but what could I do? BTW, I used 'Starfish' Glimmer Mist to dye some twill. Close enough anyway...



So have you been visiting the other DT blogs? Which stamp do you like best so far? I'm saving my favorite for Thursday's challenge.
Just one more week, and all will be revealed. Thanks for dropping by!
