Little Lady reads a book

There once was a Crafty Nomad who wanted her very own stamp for her very own creations, so, being Crafty, she MADE one!  And now she's sharing her stamp with all who would like to partake, and after one look, I was smitten, so I partook, and now Little Lady is reading a book!
Isn't she cute?  Jo/The Crafty Nomad drew this Little Lady and is currently sharing over on her blog and has a challenge going to use her.  With her long and thin shape, I instantly thought bookmark for me!  So I paper pieced Little Lady and gave her liquid pearls and glitter plus a shoulder corsage.
Here she is peeking out of my current library book.  Once I was done with my project, I gave it a good spray coating of Krylon clear paint to make it a bit more durable.
I was also inspired by the current challenge going on over at Wee Memories to use butterflies in your project.  I LOVE butterflies, and like flowers, they can go on just about anything!

Well, I hope you'll hop on over and check out Little Lady and make something with her...she's just too cute!  Thanks Jo for the opportunity to use your wonderfully adorable image!!!  Thanks for stopping by!

HOW'D you get that exquisite shot of that sweet little butterfly - I think I see the wings MOVING! {It's SO lifelike!} Dane! You are SERIOUSLY something! You have put the ball in the highest hoop! This here bookmark is downright SPECTACULAR! Whoot! Whoot!

Oh my Goodness! What can I say! First I am flattered you took part! Second, I LOVE that you gave her eyelashes! I also love the corsage, her cheeks and the fact that you gave her a book to read instead of the card!! Just wonderful, thanks for taking part!
