It's a Pocket Patootie Blog hop with Stamping Boutique!

Coffee of the Day - Texas Turtle

Welcome to Day 2 of The Stamping Boutique's Pocket Patootie Blog Hop! if you were able to visit the DT member's blogs yesterday, then you saw some GORGEOUS creations with these cutie patootie new images that Tracey has drawn! She is one talented lady and I am just as blessed as can be to be a part of this team! :) If you missed any of Day 1, please start over at Rhonda Z.'s most fabby blog! (the master list is also here in case you lose your way)

Well grab your coffee cups and let's get going! I am using the cute new image, '
Birds Pocket Patootie' for my card today. All of the PP designs can be found here at the store, but I know while you are there you will want to wander the aisles and do some more shopping, especially since Tracey has a special discount code available for this weekend only that allows you 35% off your entire purchase!!! just type in the coupon code 'bloghop' prior to check out. easy peasy pumpkin pie!

I am also using Stef's sketch challenge from the TSB challenge blog. Be sure to play along if you get the chance! These are always fun, as well as great to use any time you find yourself in a quandry for a great card or scrap layout. The papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird collection. How appropriate is that?! giggles! The little heart on the pocket tag as well as the music notes have been painted with shimmerz. the little highlights have been accented with my spica glitter pen. I used an assortment of both new and vintage buttons. Because birds love to gather all kinds of things to make their nests, I took a piece of string from an old tea tag for tying my buttons. I left the twine dangling, as well as the little staple showing. I thought this created a fun look with the birds and nest. Kind of a vintage feel with the papers, too. A SU! rub-on (you know how addicted to these I am!) finishes the card. The card base edges were inked with vanilla craft, as well as all paper edges being inked. The matted main piece is distressed.

Now hoppity hop hop on over to *Tobi's most wonderful blog* for more cutie patooties! you don't want to miss one bit of the fun! thanks for stopping for a cuppa with me! :)
