What Would I Do Without You

Hi All!
Today I'm introducing you to a new designer.
 Mabelle R.O. of WhimsyAndStars.
She's actually not a new designer at all, she's just new to me and before you ask, no, her shop is not related to Whimsy Stamps. Totally different. So today (and this summer as Guest Designer) I have the privilege of showcasing one of  her cutie patootie images called "Girl With Kitty". You can find it here.


My recipe:
Colors: prismacolors with paper piecing
Papers: K& Co.
Postage stamp sentiment: Whimsy Stamps
'Without You' Sentiment: Scrapalicious
Die: Spellbinders
Sewing: Machine done on a Singer Touch and Sew
Buttons and ribbon: from stash

Isn't she adorable? And kitty too?

So I'm also using this card as part of my DT assignment over at The Catered Crop.
Here's what's cooking today:

This was the card of inspiration  created by Hannah Clark:

And here is the ingredients Hannah utilized which we'll be mixing and matching to make our own creation with:
(My ingredients are in red)

 Colors – blue, brown, kraft and green
* Stamps and Stickers – nature, birds and birdy things
* Color Mediums – Copic, craft aint
* Embellishments – pearls, beads, stick pins, crocheted/lace ribbon, recycled cardboard (fun!) 
* Tools – paper piercer, sewing machine, distress tools, die cuts
* Techniques – paper piercing, sewing, distressing
* Theme – nature, birds, shabby chic

OK, so I know my card looks nothing like Hannah's and you're probably wondering why I didn't jump on the egg and fowl theme. Just givin you all a beak, I mean break. I'm not sick or anything:-)

So I hope you can all join in the fun at Catered Crop as well as pop over to Maybelle's etsy shop and check out her goods. She's got something for everybody unless you like ugly scary monsters or something, but hey, even so she's got some flies on a picnic, who would've thought flies could be cute? I think its the big drippy eyes. The "puss in boots" look lol  
Anyway check it out. :-)

Also , before you all run away I have a teaser sneak peak for you of Mabelle's upcoming new Summer release on JUne 18th. All being well I will have a card to share with you on the day. :-)

I was introduced to these images last summer I believe. I am not surprised that she as one of the best colourers to be a Guest Designer. Your work is outstanding. I set at my laptop and drool over all that you bring together here. My only problem with it all is that it makes me want to be just like you when I grow up! lol. Just kidding, but I do! I really need to get me some Copics or Prismas becaues my hands can't take using watercolours much longer! But more because I see your work and fall in love each time. Today's card is so beautiful and love the country feel to the design of he card. You are truly amazing. Hugs.
