PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! To enter the draw, simply leave a comment HERE and at EVERY stop along the hop by 12.00pm noon on Friday July 11th.

For today's project, I have inked up Little Apple Blossom Summer Icecream by Elizabeth Bell, and coloured her with a mixture of Distress Inks and Inktense pencils.



I've paired her up with some gorgeous papers from the latest Maja collection, Coffee in the Arbour I think these papers look so summery, don't you?



I distressed my straight edges and inked all edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and hand stitched them as always with top stitch thread.



Some lace, satin ribbon, seam binding, a brad, flowers, an ice cream charm and a beautiful butterfly from Kay's Kreative Korner to finish the card off.

If you're in the UK or  Europe you can get your Whimsy stamps fix from Tracy at Dies to Die for
