First up is a card featuring the hot air balloon!!
Funny how we get a little girl set, and I run for the primary colors, hee! I could not resist pairing this set with papers from the My Mind's Eye Everyday Flair collection. Isn't the sentiment so sweet? It will go perfectly with Half Pint Heroes, too (as will all of the images in this set)! The chevron border was made with dies from My Favorite Things.
I paper-pieced the balloon sections with various papers and added some fun punched flowers with pearls to turn up the girly factor :) Even though the sentiment says "Aim High Kid", I could not resist putting my two little girls in the basket (even though in real life Eva and Claire both have blonde hair and look much like the girly on the right :))
Next up is a card that features a sketch that I created for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog this week. Play along HERE! This card features a softer side of Half Pint Heroines...
These "Once upon a time..." sentiments are my absolute favorites from the set. Claire thought of the sweetest things to say to provide encouragement for all of the little girls in our lives. I thought of how happy my girls will be when they get cards with these! Used some more papers from My Mind's Eye, but this time I used the Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Collection. Tucked this heroine inside an image from Oval-Classic Frames.
I paper-pieced this sweet girl's dress with the papers and then shaded a bit with Copics. I colored right over the bunny, too...kind of like how the pattern shows through. Makes him look all worn and quilty :)
Come back tomorrow to see another fantastic set that will be releasing on Tuesday. But for now, RUN to these blogs to see more adorable creations featuring Half Pint Heroines!
