Momma always said

(You can find my Whimsy and Stars Studio blog hop post here)


     Can you tell I had a little play time on my hands again?  LOL  Yep, another Uptown Girl and everything but the kitchen sink as you can see by my supply list.
     You might be wondering where the green came from.  Well, originally I had planned on paper piecing her dress with some tiny black and white polka dotted paper.  The white dots had a soft green ring around them so I was matching that.  Then I moved the cut out dress off and liked the look of the white dress better.  I was pretty happy with the coloring, so the green stayed.  LOL
     All the polka dots are for this weeks recipe challenge at the Catered Crop.  The DT took a little break but we're back with this challenge.  You can hop over to the blog and check out all the inspiration from my team mates.
     I've used some more of my newer goodies.  The corner dies are from Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs and see that little birdcage?  There's one just like it in my Blogaversary Candy.  Some of you have left comments after signing up, which was not required but oh so appreciated and uplifting.  Kjersti left me this sweet one on my Whimsy blog hop post:  "Love your cards Tracy, they are made to make people happy - thanks:)".  I hope my cards do make you happy, smile, or even giggle a bit cause THAT makes me happy.
     If you've been around here any length of time you'll know that finishing the inside of a card is not the norm for me, but this one's for my bestie and I needed to complete the sentiment.



     So break out those polka dots and come play along!
