Girlie Girl



She doodled frequently in class with just a black pen and notebook paper. Thoughts on paper is what those doodles were...dreams, really...things she wanted to say to people she was too intimidated to approach, representations of what true souls looked like, you know, that kind of thing.

Super excited to be part of the May Denami Blog Hop! Weren't both of Julie Ranae's creations just fabulous?  She always blows me away with her card designs and is a super talented and great design team coordinator!

I went super chic and simple with this card. This Thought Bubble from Denami Design really reminds me of my days in high school. I added some grungy mist, feathered ric rac, sequins and a bit of bling to bring out the girlie girl side of this card. The sentiment is handwritten, I love the fact that I can add anything inside the Thought Bubble!

Your next stop is the talented Karen Larkin's blog, and if you get lost, you can always start at the beginning on the Denami Blog. All the details of the hop can be found there. Be sure while you are visiting to leave a comment on each stop, there are some amazing prizes involved!

Happy Mother's Day to all the fine mothers out there!

  1. I think the pink grungy mist is perfect, and the sequins are so subtle. Does that mean you weren't the girl who put hearts on her i's?
