In a Jiffy....

Wow! I can't believe an entire month has passed since my last Just For Fun challenge with my girls Alli, Carole, Lori, & Michele! Someone decided that we should be called "Jiffy" girls (sounds catchier than 'JFF')... and it seems to have stuck. So... once a month, I'll be posting a Jiffy project. Basically, one of the girls picks a stamp... and one of us picks out the paper. We mail it out and have a surprise combo of fun new goodies.

This month, Emily (THE Bella, herself) surprised us all by sending Alli's stamp selection - Bluebell Bittybloom! (Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!) I think this is one of the cutest stamps I've seen in a long time. I colored her in using my Copics... but she's a perfect image for paper piecing too. I can't wait to see how the other girls decked her out!
This month... I chose this fun, girly paper from Cosmo Cricket. ("Saturday" from the Girl Friday collection) My main image sits on a dark brown piece of felt that was sewn in place.
