Good morning, and Happy Happy WEEKEND!

I'm here to share a creation today using lots of brand new Scraptownlady supplies!  Oh my goodness, what fun it was to get my 'fall' box.  I had ordered this sweet summer image, and decided that I should hurry and use it before we get totally into fall and Christmas.  Isn't she precious?  She's a Marianne stamp, and she's one of the adorable Snoesjes girls!  You could color her so sweetly with your choice of mediums! Colored Pencils, Spectrum Noir, Copic, Tombow, or StampinUp Markers....whatever you have on hand!
You can find here HERE!

Here is the easel card all set up.  Isn't she adorable?

This is the inside of the card - all Bo Bunny Goodness :)

And, of course, she folds flat for mailing!

Hope that she brought you a smile today.  I just couldn't wait to get her inky! 

Thanks for looking - hope you'll dash over to the Scraptownlady store and do a bit of shopping.  Cheryl offers an EVERYDAY 20% discount on EVERY order, and if that's not enough, she also charges ONLY the actual shipping costs on each order!  Pretty cool, right?  We'd love for you to follow our blog, too!

Have a great weekend,
Patti J.

Designer's Tip:  When creating a 6 x 6 card or layout, it's fun to make a 6 1/8" square box out of something sturdy, for mailing.  The recipient loves getting a 'present', your card is protected, and you get to show off your box making skills!  It's VERY easy!  Look for a photo tutorial with dimensions next week!

Sweet card Patti! I love the pretty papers you used and the little lady is coloured in perfectly to go with them.
I like the idea of a box for the thicker cards. I make double thick envelopes to hold some but once in a while even they aren't quite thick enough! lol
Thanks for sharing your lovely work and have a great weekend! :)
