For Loll

My friend Loll is the CAS Featured Stamper on SCS this week.

Loll inspires me every time she posts
sometimes in between posts too.
Here's her blog.  She'd love to have you visit.


This is Loll's card that inspired me.

I used a piece of "smooshed" background behind the outcut circle and
another piece for the butterfly.

Since I used snippets I can go for a spin on the merry go round at
Pixies Snippet Playground

I'm so glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!

I know, isn't Loll amazing? I see many beauties coming from your blog that have been inspired by her creations.

This is a gorgeous way to use the smooshing AND multiple dies. It's so pretty, and definitely spring-like.

Thanks for your comments lately, Bonnie. I'm trying to get caught up on mine!

Loll does make fabulous cards and so do you! Love this one and the smooched backing behind that pretty butterfly. Great way to use the corner die too.
