Grand Opening of The Craft's Meow


My gorgeous friend Lisa Hjulberg is launching her dream today - The Craft's Meow - her very own online store selling papercrafting kits from companies such as Crate Paper and Graphic 45. She's also introducing her very own stamp line featuring this little cutie! Her name is Frieda and there's a lovely story behind her name! Lisa's mother's name was Frieda and she was hoping Lisa would name one of her children after her - but Lisa had 4 boys! So now Frieda is remembered and honoured in ink. This image is "Little Frieda's Flowers". There are 2 other cute Frieda images to check out too. 

There are several of Lisa's friends who have jumped on board to help her out - and most of us are celebrating today with previews - you can check out who else is playing along today at The Craft's Meow Store blog HERE. I can't tell you how honoured I am to play a part today - especially amongst such talented crafters.

In honour of Lisa's kits I used Crate Paper DP - these are from the Restoration paper pad. I'm not sure yet if it's one being used in the kits. I also coloured Frieda's dress in green - Lisa's favourite colour (and mine)! The flowers and wreath have a little sparkle on them from my clear Spica pen. The sentiment comes with Frieda.

I used this week's sketch from Friday Sketchers for inspiration.

Good Luck with your new adventure Lisa!!!
