Grow where your potted :)

This is the last card to share that I had made on my girls getaway.
I sure dragged them out didn't I, teehee.
I used this image from the gorjuss girls line....isn't she adorable :)
My friend Phillane gave this stamp to me, thanks Pea :)
I think this is one of my favourite cards.

I used my Copics to colour her up.
I paper pieced her dress. As you can see, I also shade the paper piecing I do. It gives the image a bit more dimension.
I also drew in the grass., and added some clouds in the background with some distress ink.

The inside of this card.
As always I used left over papers and a recipe/index card.
I edged the papers with black distress ink.

Onto My Day:
I can't believe that October is already here.
So with a new month also comes month end. I was working all day today.

Tonight (while I was working) Wayne and I have been watching Dexter. I really like this show. When I first heard about it, I had no desire to watch it. But after watching a few shows, we are hooked on it.
It is so not what I thought it was.
We are also excited that Bones and Castle have started up again. We just hope that Bones is better then last year, and it doesn't focus so much on baby stuff. Actually Heather stopped watching Bones last season because of that.

Hope you all had a creative Monday :)

Tracy :)


  1. My gf was telling me about Dexter yesterday! :0)
    Great job on the background, very subtle! Another cutie-pie!

  2. I love your card! What a great job you did with the coloring. How did you draw in the clouds like that? It is so subtle.

  3. I think that is one of my fav cards of yours, too. Love the way all the colors work together and you can definitely see the dimension in her dress. I just wonder, where is her mouth? It's on the wooden leg, I know, I know....

  4. Love this card-that image is so cute and your coloring looks perfect on it! I'll have to remember that paper piecing tip to shade the edges. Great idea.

  5. oh my golly this little girl is just way too cute! as always your coloring is awesome and love the paper piecing!

  6. You put so much work into your cards and it shows!

  7. Ah, love that image. This is a sweet card. Love the browns and that you can pull out such a unique color combo for the card based on how you color the image. Love it! I just started watching Bones on Netflix. There are so many shows that I never watched when they were on the air but it's fun to catch up. Dexter on the other hand...I don't think I need those images in my head so I just avoid it. :)

  8. This is a really cute card!! I love the dress!

  9. Very cute, love how her dress matches the card. Have fun watching dexter =)

  10. Beautiful card! Well done! :)

  11. Awesome card Tracy, love that cute image. The paper piecing is awesome, love the shading! I'm also hoping Bones is better this season, and love Castle too! ;)

  12. This is a great card. I love how you shaded the paper piecing to make it pop.

    I hope Bones gets better. I hate when a show changes the focus like that, it would probably make me stop watching too!

  13. Another beautiful image and really love how your shaded the dress. Fabulous. TFS

  14. She's beautiful! Your coloring is so beautiful, her hair looks real! Love how you paper pieced her dress. We are very happy our fall shows are back, too.

  15. the paper piecing!

  16. She is beautiful :) I still need to figure out how to paper piece. I started coloring my new stamp last night. We'll see how I do with it. Ha! We watched Dexter for awhile and then got out of it. Need to pick that back up again, it's a good show. We're going to try that new show this year, Elementary. We'll see...

  17. Very cute! Thanks for sharing your talent.

  18. Your card is so beautiful and the imag is so cute and sweet.

    Fab work.


  19. I know you are counting down like we are to The Walking Dead new season! Isnt Oct. The best month ever for scary movie fans!

  20. I love these stamps but I wish the had a nose and mouth? Great colouring, I love the colours x
