Let's Hang Out In Denim SFYTT


Hi there everyone! Happy Monday!  I don't know about any of you, but we are experiencing some HOT weather here in California!!  We were clost to 100 yesterday and are expecting a little cooler weather today but still in the low 90's.  We don't have air conditioning so my house is like an oven!    Can't wait until we get back to our normal 80's!

Anywho...I decided to stamp a bit this morning before the real heat set in!  I have been wanting to use the darling dress image from the Hangin' Out set from Taylored Expressions and thought it would be fun to stamp it on denim!  What do you think?  I gave it more of a country feel with the gingham sash and gingham ruffle.  I think it looks so cute!  The papers are a mix of October Afternoon Farm Fresh and Thrift Shop.  I love how you can combine the different paper packs and it still coordinates.  The sketch is this week's Sketch For You To Try from Jen del Muro.


I didn't leave enough room for the sentiment on the outside, so I decorated the inside!

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back with Mercy's Tuesday sketch at Midnight EST tonight!  This week's sketch is AWESOME!!  Have a great day!

I love the demin dress! Such a fun, unexpected touch! I just got my packs of October Afternoon dp in the mail last week and am so enjoying them! They're definitely showing up on a lot of my cards. :) Such great colors and patterns.

What a fabulously tied together card! All of your elements match so well together, including that super paper (real denim?)pieced dress, the ruffled ribbon and perfectly matching buttons! Just dazzling!
