Welcome to the My Favorite Things April Blog Hop & Shop. To get started with the hop (if you haven't already), visit Kim at the MFT blog. If you arrived by way of Michele, you're right on track.
I am so happy to show off one of the cutest stamps ever - the new Boy & Dog Tree Swing from the Pure Innocence line. I am so smitten with this image - his precious bald head, the adorable overalls, the tree swing - it just sings of those wonderful, carefree days of early childhood. I stamped him on one of MFT's Perfect Paper Panels, then colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I included lots of earthy, natural embellishments to go along with the outdoor feel - natural twill, woven ricrac, and twine. The corners of some of the panels are adorned with MFT's Chocolate Kiss Baby Braddies.
On the inside, I stamped a different tree and swing image (from Grow Love [temporarily out of stock]) and added the "Missing You" sentiment, which comes from Flurry of Love. I did all the inside coloring with Prismacolor pencils to avoid any bleed-through to the back of the card.
Your next stop on the hop is the oh-so-talented Christina! Enjoy!
