Quirky Rosettes Guest Designer - It's a Sweet Summer!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (because it's my all time fave!)

first of all, Happy Father's Day to all of the dads, grandpas, uncles, and single moms who have had to be all of the above.... days like this I miss my dad like crazy, but am so very thankful for the short time we had together and the wonderful example Dave is to our sons! :)
For my card today, I was asked to be a Guest Designer over at Quirky Crafts. the theme for the new challenge is 'Quirky Rosettes.' now I had never in my life made a rosette, so okay, challenge here we come! ;)

Thankfully I had a die I had never used before (shock! horrors! none of you have any of those, do you?!?) to the rescue marches the Tim Holtz mini snowflake rosette die. I know you are thinking, snowflakes? in the middle of summer? well, hey. it's all I had. so this gal was gonna make do!

I was provided this cutey pie image, 'Siannie,' by Kaz Kraftz at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet. all of the papers and elements are from the Echo Park Country Drive collection.  her little dress was paper pieced, while the edges of each rosette were covered in stickles. her socks & the flowers in her hair were painted with shimmerz. buttons are from my stash, and flowers are an assortment of Wild Orchid Crafts & misc.  a doily peaks out from behind the main image.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'll have my blog candy up in just a bit. :)

I am intrigued by rosettes because I have never made one before either. I've watched YouTube videos in the past but I guess I must have found them intimidating because I haven't tried it yet. Yours look gorgeous - lucky you found that die! Love the sweet image!

Diane said...

Oh just adorable Jennifer.
