What Time is It? It’s JiFFy Time!

Yep, the Jiffy girls have another challenge to share!  This time around Lori chose this adorable (and very popular) Daisy image by Sugar Nellie.  And before she revealed her image to us, I mailed to everyone “Sun Dress” and “Strawberry Patch” patterned paper from Basic Grey’s new Lemonade collection.

It’s Been a While


I used a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils to color my image.  The girl’s hair, skin and the background were colored with Copics and the rest was done with pencils. 

I shredded the paper edges a bit and then used my psychotic sewing machine to add some stitching.  Normally if my machine is acting wonky,  I would murmur some choice words and start over, but since the card is kind of scrappy, I decided the stitching could stay kind of [email protected]

Be sure to check out what the other JiFFy girls have done with this same image and paper:

Julie, Carole, Lori and Alli.  (Kim has a lot going on this month so she had to sit this one out.  She’ll be back though! 🙂 )

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

  22. White or off white? Many guests wear very off white or muslin colored [url=http://www.eastbridal.com/bridesmaid-dresses.html]bridesmaid dresses[/url], which is absolutely fine for any wedding. Historically, guests wore “THEIR” best bridesmaid dress to the wedding, and the color wasn’t dictated by anyone. Now, if it a frilly, lacey white-white dress, that is a different story all together! So many things are dependent on culture anyway.
