Winter Mimi

Happy Friday friends! It's such a nice end to a very busy week and a good start to a packed full weekend. It is homecoming at the high school this weekend and both my kids will be engaged in all the festivities that this event brings - parade, floats, football, dinner, dance and lots of fun.  I should also mention it brings a day full of prep for my daughter - hair, nails, dress, flowers, etc.  I am exhausted thinking about it now that I have itemized everything here!  So let's divert our attention to the card and the release today of this darling Mimi Winter2 collection at StampFairy...
Here's the full collection - it's the second collection featuring our sweet Mimi in winter scenes.  The sentiment circle is today's freebie.

Isn't she sweet in her digitally paper-pieced dress, hat and scarf?  The fun, colorful papers are called Mod Xmas from Clementine Digitals through the MyGrafico online arts and crafts store.  The snowflake embellishments are made with a MS Cornflower punch with a snowflake button on top, sewn together with little french knots in pink thread. Some sparkly stickles on the image, pearls on the Spellbinders die and some MFT flourish diecuts finish it off.

My layout was inspired by this sketch that Carole created over at the Friday Sketch Challenge. I thought it was a perfect fit with this image and the paper I chose. This card is being entered in their challenge this week.  A couple weeks ago a card I created was selected as one of the design team's top three picks - thanks ladies!

So that's it for today's StampFairy release.  To see more creations from the team of StampFairies using this new image, head on over to StampFairy World.

Thanks for stopping by today!
