Introducing Little Frieda's Daisy!

Hi there! I can hardly believe that tomorrow is the big day... the grand opening of my store! Yikes! I hope I'm ready. lol

Someone once told me that the definition of an entrepreneur is someone who is willing to work 16 hours a day so they don't have to work 8 hours for someone else. I'm beginning to see the truth in that... it's 2:00 am as I write this post. But it's a labor of love!

Today I'm showing you Little Frieda's Daisy. She comes with three greetings, one of which you see on the card ("smile"). The other two are "he loves me, he loves me not" and "thinking of you."


I made this card for this week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, which is to create a card or project that has something hidden from first view. I used one of the fabby kraft envelopes from Maya Road which you will find in the Emma's Shoppe kits on Monday!!! And yep, that's Emma's Shoppe paper and embellies. I'm in love love love with this collection!

I'm so happy to announce that tomorrow I have several Friends of The Craft's Meow (i.e., some very special friends of mine) who are joining me in celebrating the Grand Opening of my store. I'll have a complete link list so that you can visit their blogs for more looks at Little Frieda and the wonderful stamps created for me by Claire Brennan. Plus, I'll be announcing the winner of the Copic Ciao markers set! I hope you'll be here at 8:00 am Pacific... 'cause that's when the fun begins!

Thanks so much for hanging out with me this past week!
