Life is Wonderful

Good morning, and Happy Friday!  It's my day to post for the Scraptownlady Blog, so without further ado, here is my creation for today.

I guess with our upcoming first grandchild, I have babies on my mind.  This sweet 'Pearl' seems to be a great mommy, don't you think?

 The image panel and die cut are actually white cardstock that has been distressed with a sponge dauber, and some brushed courduroy ink.  The pennants and butterflies were fussy cut from patterned papers - I love Scraptownlady's assortment of papers!  For a full list of supplies, see below!

I have an itty bitty blog candy for you today!  Up for grabs is a sweet pair of bird dies from the Scraptownlady store!  These are Impression Obsession Dies, and cut like butter...for real!  All you have to do to win these dies is become a follower of the Scraptownlady Blog!  That's it!  One lucky follower will win! I will announce the winner next week on my Scraptownlady post!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs & Smiles,
Patti J.
