Peachy Keen Challenge #3

Good Monday morning! I hope it's a good one for you, and I hope you had a glorious 4th of July celebration. It was rainy here most all day on the 4th, but we made the best of it, and had a great day. I received my Peachy Keen stamps last Friday, and I couldn't get through the weekend without inking them up. I stayed up till the wee (and I do mean wee) hours of the morning this morning playing with this cute little Lulee stamp, but I didn't feel so sleepy, because I took a three hour nap yesterday afternoon. I do love the quiet time in the night that affords some special moments for creating. I can't do that every night, but once in a while, it's a good thing.
This stamp is a new one from Peachy Keen Stamps called Party Girl Lulee. Isn't she the sweetest thing you've ever seen? My Lulee is a blonde, because she reminds me of my adorable niece, Madisyn, who just celebrated her 4th birthday last week. Party Girl Lulee comes with flower, heart, and pocket accessories, along with a smiley face, and the happy birthday sentiment for the balloon. All those accessories allow you unlimited creating possibilities for this little cutie, so hop on over to Peachy Keen and place your order today. Don't forget to check out the July specials. Kathy's offering some great deals that you won't want to miss!!
Here's a closer look at the details. As I've said before, if it weren't for dimensionals, I would NEVER be able to ever put a card together! I LOVE popping up layers on a card for that 3-D look. I did some faux stitching along the edge of the circle. I really wanted to sew it, but my machine hasn't made the trip to grandma's house yet. Maybe this week!?? In the mean time, faux stitching will have to do.
Supply List
Paper: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

I'm thinkin' I need to be thinkin' about some blog candy. I haven't offered any yet, but it sure seems like a good idea to me. I'll be gathering some things up this week, so be sure to check back in, because I want to give away some goodies starting next week. Thank you so much for stopping by today, your support is what keeps me going! Have a blessed day!
Love Ya!

I must say your faux stamping is amazing. If you hadn't mentioned it I never would have known that it wasn't done by machine. Your card is adorable, she's the sweetest little thing.
