Thank yous and another tshirt day

Today is a beautiful sunny day with a temp of 83*. This is my kind of a perfect summer day. Ive been on the computer almost all day, (I miss my craft room). I had asked a few people on Facebook that I have friended if they could help announce my blog on their blog posts. They responded postively and it helped me get some followers. Im asking for you continued support as I am new to the bloggers world. But I really wanted to say thank you for your support. Without you My Blog would never be seen. Also thanks for your crafty computer advice. I am making plans for a followers give away. More about that to come in the near future.
Also today, I wanted to share a t shirt I made for my grand daughter Dani. The image is is appropite for todays post and that is "Making Friends". Thats what I want my followers to be, my new friends. The image is from "Best Friends" Imagine cartridge printed on tshirt transfer paper, then ironed on a cotton tee. I used Printworks t-shirt transfer paper,compatible with all inkjet printers.
Bye for now, Im going to enjoy the rest of this perfect day.
Hugs, Dawn

Looking For FOLLOWERS...

I haven't posted in a while and Im sorry for that. I've been quit busy and the heat wave that affected most of the country was too much for me. Today here on the East Coast it's a litte cloudy and the temp is 74*. This is my kind of weather, A little more sun would be just right.
So today Im looking for followers to my blog. Im looking for help to get the word out and I'm open to suggestions to attract followers. My goal is to post at least 2 times per week through the summer. With the cooler weather I should be able to get more time in the craftroom and on the computer.
Todays card is what I will try to accomplish, admitting one follower at a time to build my blogsite. "Admit One". thanks for stopping by today.

Paper Piecing

Todays cards are done with a technique called paper piecing. When I went to the Stamping and Scrapbooking stamp show I did a few of the make and takes. I stopped at the Bella Stamp booth, which happens to be my local stamp store. In the picture I used the same stamp and have 3 different looks. Paper piecing is where you stamp a stamp then cutout the pieces of designer printed papers. In this case I pieced the dresses and changed the backgrounds creating a different look with one image.The stamp set is Pure Innocence for My Favorite Things. The set is a set of 2 sentiments and a image stamp. I fell in love with this set called, Bunch of Blooms and the little girl. So I thought Ide share this with all of you. Hope you enjoy.

I have since gone back to Bella and bought more stamps of this little girl. I uses my Copics markers for the coloring.
