So I'm bringing this lovely chaise lounge to help decorate Belassiz's villa so hopefully Bodacious will win her hand. I added a soft comfy pillow and a matching teapot and cup to make it more versatile! (see the Teapot challenge for clarification of this sentence!)
The chaise is paper pieced and the wood part is colored with a copic. The teapot, cup and pillow are up on foam dimensionals.
Thanks for coming by today!

My scene this week is a little whimsical using the fun Doodle Factory country background stamp - I paper pieced the moutains and fields - the 'snow' capped mountains and clouds are puffed with liquid applique. The sun, butterfly, flower and almighty tag are all up on foam dimensionals. I made the black borders using an EK Success scalloped punch.

Ok - I'm off to bed - trying to catch up on some sleep after a busy weekend!

I was inspired by these images because I knew my Doodlebug Factory stamps were PERFECT for this!
Paper: summer sunrise, white: PTI
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, summer sunrise: PTI
Accessories: sponge, yellow flock, zig glue pen, foam dimensionals, star punch, heart punch, oval punch, copics, sequins
I get these great little boxes from Clearbags.com. The stamps are from the My Punny Valentine set by Papertrey Ink. The ribbon is from PTI also. I used Naturals Ivory and More Mustard card stock from Stampin Up. Inside I just tucked a square of green tissue paper.
And you can see the Sugar & Spiced nuts (Recipe by Denise) tucked inside. This will be included in a bag of treats I'm giving some friends.
Thanks for stopping by today!
