The challenge that Melisa gave us this week was to use pleats on our design.
I chose to make a little fancy dress. Easier said than done! After several attempts, this is what I came up with!
I cut a slit in the branch on the top and slid the dress shoulders up into it, so that it would look to be hanging from the branch. The little decorative edge was cut with Fiskar's scissors, and the edge that was trimmed was what I used at the bottom of the dress bodice. Papers and stamps are all The Angel Company.
Yesterday was like Christmas in my girl-cave! I received a wonderful care package from Pat in Surrey, UK. It was packed full of beautiful things. I can't believe that I have met so many kind and thoughtful people through this blog. Pat, if you are reading - thank you so much! I will treasure all of the things that you made!
I also received a couple of orders - one was from Susana's that I cannot wait to ink up! She included the cutest little freebie to say thanks for the order. What a nice way to do business! The other order was from Unity Stamps, and I am so anxious to find time to play with those as well!
Last but not least, a box came from Anna! It was the blog candy that I won from her a short while ago. It took three postal workers, 10 mules, and myself to carry that huge box of stamps out of the post office! Lol - just kidding, but Anna, what a ton of stamps! If that's what you got rid of, one can only imagine what you have! If you have not been to Anna's blog, it is well worth the trip!
It's a glorious Tuesday in Missouri - hope it's as beautiful a day wherever you are. Have a great day! I'm off to paint a window frame! The remodeling is about to start at our place, and once it does, my craft time will be somewhat limited!
