Gracie!

I have a very special stamp set from Sherrod Studio to give you a sneak peek of - meet Gracie!



So what makes Gracie so special? Well she is the 1st set from Sherrod Studio that will raise money for childrens' charities, the 1st one being The Christmas Box Lifestart Iniative. This program helps children who have been in foster care for years and suddenly find themselves 18 and on their own. You can read more about this program here: http://www.operationkids.org/lifestart/

Gracie was stamped on PTI white cardstock and cut out and colored with Copics. Her clothing was stamped on DP (the same as the card base, only I used the reverse side) and then cut out and added to Gracie. The flower was added to her hand and also colored with Copics. The card itself was cut with the Peony Nestabilities die and I added a few pierced holes around the edges. It's hard to tell in this picture but the small flowers on the saying have tiny pink sparkles added to them as centers.

The Gracie set also comes with the flower seen in yesterday's post as well as an adorable teddy bear, more sentiments, another flower, a balloon....an all-around adorable and versatile set!

Don't forget to check out the other sneak peeks by some of the other DT members - one of them will be drawing a name for a free stamp set when Sherrod Studio has it's grand opening on July 1st so be sure to check out these gals and leave them a comment!
