I love July! It just seems like the best time of the year to me. The 4th is always such a fun holiday, my sister's birthday is in July as well as my granddaughter, Allie. The weather is always nice and hot and swimming, picnics, and watermelon are on the agenda. It doesn't really get much better than that for me. Oh, and I just love all the patriotism and fun colors in all tones of red, white, and blue are everywhere! This week's challenge for Tuesday Throwdown is Stars and Stripes. We're being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and they've provided us with some adorable images to use to inspire you.
Based on all of the above, I chose "My Little Cook" and simply adore her!
Isn't she too cute? She's colored with copics and I added some Stickles to her hat, hair ties, blouse, apron, and socks. She's cut out with my floral oval by Nestabilities and the flowers are a punch from McGill and the branches are a punch from Martha Stewart. The papers are from BasicGrey and Graphic 45 (I am trying to use all my scraps, can you tell?) and the gems are from Studio G. I added some distressed ink in Scattered Straw around the frame and the sentiment.
Here's a closer look at her. I can just see one of my girls standing up on that little stool wanting to held their dad flip burgers or face a crowd and yell, "The burgers are done!"
I plan on entering her in the following challenges:
