Howdy ya'll...
I've been struck with Midwestern inspiration today.
Meet the cutest little gal here called A Girl and Her Overalls!
Ain't she adorable??
Her's all pertified up with copics and a few embellishments.
A hand stamped sentiment using miniature alphabet stamps.

Before ya'll scoot, I'd like ya ta take a gander at this har down right perty
PICK(s) OF THE WEEK!! (I couldn't pick just one!)
Well, I tried, I really did, but narrowing down the choices this week was just too difficult a task for me.  I have three (blushes).  Each so uniquely different and really gave me some great ideas.
How wonderful is this for an Anniversary card? It really struck me as such a unique and perfect depiction of a happy couple.  Great card Jan!
By simply adding a little extension to the regular tag, she's created an even more elegant piece of work. I really liked the innovative thinking on this. Beautiful tag!
Wow! I got lost trying to decipher the intricate and detailed layers of this card. I really love the amazing work on the framing and yet it lends itself perfectly to support this fabulous image.  A beautiful piece of artwork Heather!

If the post wouldn't go on forever, I would have loved to post everyone's work. Thank you so much to everyone who shared the most amazing creative projects with us this week!

I reckon you best be on your way then and headn' over yonder to the best linky party there is in these har parts....
And you can get the cutest lil' gal in overalls here at

Hello Q
My favourite part of this amazing card is not your cute girl, but the raffia bow with the Red hearts and your corrugated cardboard, I just want to run my fingers over it and feel the texture, adding these natural elements to your design delights my senses. Of course your little girl is cute, but for me, personally it is all about the Bg.
A lovely card Q.

Lol is it wrong that I read all of that in a midwestern voice? hehehe. Love the image and all of those much beautiful texture! I need to get me some raffia I think :D

Shelby said...

You got that midwestern stuff all down to an art form. Thought you were my old neighbor there for a moment then realized, hey wait, it's just Dory. Love how you've colored up her overalls and the sentiments are perfectly done.


Tracy said...

Now girl you know that Ellie Mae has blond hair. LOL She looks great in the middle of all those fun bright colors. The little touch of cardboard and denim keep her from being to uppity. ;-) Hope you have an awesome week Twang.
P.S. As much rain as we've gotten I might have to send it to you in gallon jugs instead of jars. :-)

Margaret said...

Awww... She's so purdy! It actually looks a lot like me when I was little-needs more dirt and grunge though...and lose the shoes! :)
I love all of the 'extras' added to tie into your theme. The bit of denim, raffia w/ hearts, and corrugated piece make this so 'country'! Super sweet card!
