Its an Extra Specially "Fun Friday!!"

Good morning and Happy Friday!!  You all know I *love* Fridays right?  This one is even better than my usual Starbucks Run, Daycare Closed, Fun Friday, I've been keeping a little secret the last few days.  giggle.....

I am over the moon excited this morning and its not only because I'm on Nantucket for the beginning of a girls weekend, but also because I got an email from Taylor earlier this week asking me if I'd like to be her Cupcake Sampler this week!! Would I?  EEEEKS!  

I've had a big cheesy grin on my face all week! Thanks so much Taylor! You all KNOW I love a good sketch challenge right??

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew it was the excuse to use the stamp set I've been itching to play with "Fish Friends" from Whipper Snapper.  The whole set is so sweet, but my very favorite image is the little lady bug hanging out on this daisy. 

The image was stamped to Watercolor Paper and then stitched to a layer of Kiwi Kiss cardstock.  

For the scalloped element, I just had to squeeze in a little bit of red to tie in with the ladybug and I had some Rockability paper handy.  I added some piercing to each of the scallops to mimic the dots on the lady but and on the kiwi paper too.  Of course, I couldn't pass up a little "bow-tunity" to add a little scrap of gingham ribbon tied off with a piece of linen thread. 

I can't wait to see what Taylor's Cupcake Sampler team came up with for this sweet little sketch! Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!
