TGF Garden Variety Tuesday~GIRLY GIRL!!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today starts a new Garden Variety Tuesday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm. The theme for the next week is:


Oooooh, I had so much fun with this one! I'm always making girly cards because I have a boy and I need some pink and flowers and pearls in my life, haha!

I used the new Baby Anya & Ian Set for my altered Baby Frame. I stamped Anya and the Giraffe on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics along with some paper-piecing!

Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11
Hair: E44, E47
Outfit: Paper-pieced
Giraffe: E40, E41, E42, R81, R83, RV002, Stickles

I like to buy these cheap $1.50 frames at Michaels just to have one hand for altering. I have several sitting in a storage bin and decided to put them to use this week! My dps are from various paper pads...MME and Authentique. I inked all the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The Heart Banner is from La-La Land Crafts. The flowers are from Prima, Recollections and my friend Cebelica. The pearl swirls are from Recollections.

In the side view you can see I raised the banner and giraffe on pop-dots. The quote is from a pad of clear transparency girly quotes that I got from Hobby Lobby years ago. I'm finding all sorts of stuff while I'm unpacking! It's like Christmas in June, haha! And yes, it's been 10 months since we moved to Texas...and I'm still unpacking....UGH! :)

Here's how to play:
* Use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
* Submit your entry via InLinkz (below) no later than Monday, JUNE 17th, 2013 at Noon CST. You can add a direct link to your entry from your personal blog, SCS gallery, Flickr or TGF galleria. (If the InLinkz tool is missing, please add your URL in the comment section.)
* The fabulous prize: A random participant will be selected to win a digital image of choice from the TGF store. 
*** But WAIT! Each week, our friends have the opportunity to DOUBLE that prize to either two digis, or you can trade those two digis for a single rubber stamp of choice, as long as we have 20 or more players each week, so encourage all your friends and family to play along! *** 
Good luck! We can't wait to see your Girly Girl creations!!
Rosie :)

This really is very girly. So cute!!! I keep saying that I will also buy a cheap frame and then alter it, but I haven't gotten around to actually do it. I think that I just keep adding things to my "to do list" instead of (also) crossing some of those things too. Oh well ... At least crossing everything from the list will make me busy for a while. :P
What I really like about your frame is also that you used lots of those small pieces of craft paper. Such a great way to use your scraps! Beautiful!
Hugs! xx

What a gorgeous altered frame! I saw this on TGF's blog and had to stop by to tell you that all of the details and colors are perfect. Someone is going to love this when they receive it.
