Florida sunshine

A few weeks ago I was down in Florida with my Mum and as I do on every trip to Florida now....a day was spent driving to one of my favourites places.  Not Disney World but the My Favorite Things store in Eustis, Florida!!  This trip we took a friend with us and I'm not sure Vicki, or even my Mum, fully understood my love and excitement of going to the MFT store, but they were both good sports in letting me shop and look and ooh and aah over everything.  Vicki and her parents are often our chauffeurs to and from Tampa airport when we visit and I wanted to make them a special thank you card.  I used Karen's SSSC208 from this week.


This sweet little PI seemed to fit perfectly with the glorious, sunny, warm weather we had.  I had a lot of fun paper piecing her shorts and t-shirt.  It was a lot of layering but I love the finished look.  I added some Tiny Twinkles to her hair barrette and her purse and of course her little sandals shimmer from my Wink of Stella pen.


 I used my fav Fishtail Flags again on the inside. 


We always have a lot of laughs and I am very appreciative of their transportation services while I'm there.  Although the drive to the MFT store was only about an hour and a half for us, we managed to get lost - or as I like to say, we just took the long way - LOL.  However long it takes to get there it is SO worth it - the store is a dream!  I know you can order online but there's nothing like seeing it all in real life!

Here are the copics I used.
