Mother Goose Time

The Nursery Times stamp set is so cute, and I have to think of a brilliant project for it... but in the meantime, a straight-forward swap card for Leadership. I made a couple versions.

I remember the Real Mother Goose nursery rhyme book when I was a kid, with the black & white pattern on the back. What it square- or harlequin-pattern? This led me to use the harlequin pattern from Backgrounds I Texturz Plates.

I added some clouds, because of course Mother Goose needs to fly. I can't get enough of these Itty Bitty flowers with pearls. I love making them!

If it's not a new stamp set and I'm not be clever with the image, then I'll beat down the swaps with cute details, right?

Stamps: Nursery Times, Petite Pairs; Paper: Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Just Eat Cake DSP, First Edition DSP; Ink: Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Pumpkin Pie, Blush Blossom, Basic Gray, Black Stazon; Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Aquapainter, Sponges, Itty Bitty punch pack, Circle punches, Cupcake builder punch, Square Lattice embossing folder, Backgrounds I Texturz Plates, 3" Circle die, Scallop Circle #2 die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

:) Just because it isn't groundbreaking, doesn't mean it isn't gorgeous! I love all the texture and soft sweet colors. And yes, I think those flowers are the fastest way to make the most darling accent on just about anything!
