Thinking of You


Hellooooooo and happy Thursday!

Today's card was meant to follow a sketch that I had printed off my computer and have been contemplating...but then I started to deviate. And when I went back to add the elements the sketch called for, I was already in love with this layout too much to comprimise.
For this card I used Day Dreamer from my set of Sugar Nellie Leanne Ellis stamps. This is very much how I grew up...always a dreamer...always thinking of the world outside my window and very curious about how people think, feel and differ from one another. I love this cutie patootie image. Oh and if you're curious as to whether or not I overdid it with the distress ink...nope, none, the patterned paper comes distressed already. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Deets:
Stamps:
Sugar Nellie, Leanne Ellis Day Dreamer, Amuse sentiment
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday-Tuesday, Whisper White
Ink: Copics, Not Quite Navy, Momento Black
Embies: Paper Piercer, Teal Thread, Jewel Dots

This is just so darling and sweet. I love how you popped up those birdies and the flower in her hair. That is some delish patterned paper.

Kadie, this is so adorable. Yes, I can see you dreaming by the window and I can also relate because I did that often as a young girl! Did you thread the piercings? How did you do that? It's so beautiful!!!

This is so cute, Kadie! I love the story behind it - I'm definitely a day dreamer, looking out the window.
Love the DPs and coloring on this. The stitching is wonderful and I love the birdies and her flower popped up. Adorable!
