An Apron for a Friend

Stef showed us the Lama Designs web site for the inspiration challenge on Split Coast. I was inspired by this pretty apron.
I've been wanting to use this apron stamp by Lockhart stamps - it lends itself so well to being paper pieced. I used Cosmo Cricket DP's - Early Bird on the apron and Girl Friday for the towel. I left the ends of the twill loose to suggest apron strings. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Earth Angel set

This also qualifies for the Moxie Fab World's around the house challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

So cute, Julia. I think I need that apron stamp, too -- however, I have the other apron by Lockhart and haven't used it yet, so perhaps that should do that first. Great paper choices, great card!
