Itty Bitty Mushrooms





Check out these Itty Bitty Mushrooms from SCACD. Originally, I had planned on using them to build a scene for a Fairy stamp (Willow). However, the second that I put ink to the rubber, a million ideas came to mind. Even though they are such a small image, check out how this frame literally magnifies them and draws your eye front and center.

As I sit here typing this up, more ideas have already come to mind and I have decided to finish the inside of the card as well. Thinking something along the lines of "Have a Groovy day"!! As you know, I have grown daughters that are both very fun, eccentric, independent, free spirited, groovy gals and I have no idea why, but this card makes me think of them! Guess I better make another ;o)

Today over on the Follow your Heart Blog, Danni, one of SCACD's design team members is going to be featuring a TUTORIAL. Danni and the rest of the Design Team are unbelievably talented crafters and I plan on using this month as the Lockhart Guest Designer to absorb as much of their wisdom and talent that I can. When I grow up I want to be just like them so I have added their names with links over in my side bar so that you too can check them out!!!
