Time to Bloom

The flowers at my house are blooming! so is the water bill! :) actually we have a water well for that purpose or we'd be looking at a lot of brown grass.

The sketch is from Mojo Monday #150 and the theme is Floral Frenzy for the MFT guest designer challenge. The Pure Innocence image is Happy Mail. I cut the mailbox off to give a little more versatility. Do you see the ruffled ribbon at the bottom of her dress??? CUTE! I love paper piecing the dresses. It takes me back to paper-dolls. 

I made an accordion flower using this tutorial. It was easy. I cut my paper strips 3/4". Next time I would do 1/2" so that it sets a little lower.

Have a marvelous day! ~Rhonda

  5. I just love PI....the addition of the little ruffle was just the perfect touch!

  6. Great card! Love your accordion flower!

  7. Rhonda, I love how you altered the PI image. Her dress is adorable with the ruffle. I am so addicted to PI images and agree it is kind of like playing with paper dolls to paper piece and decorate her clothes.

    So hot here too--105 today! I have been watering and watering and unfortunately have to use city water so hate to think of the bill!!

  8. Rhonda, this is so cute! The ruffled skirt is my absolute favorite thing I've seen visiting blogs tonight! It caught my eye right away. You are so clever! I saw that flower tutorial too, and hope to try it out soon. Love your summery one!
