Little Girl Inspiration, A notecard party, and Chasing Mini

Recently I told you about Judy Ginns from Queensland, Australia.  She used some of my fabrics to create these magnificent frocks for little girls. Just look what she did with my Alice in Wonderland fabric.

Judy inspires me.  I printed these photographs out and put them on my inspiration board.  Since then I have designed some new Alice in Wonderland fabrics about Alice.

This one is called Alice in Wonderland Frock, which I am waiting to receive.

Alice Down The Rabbit Hole with a white background, which is for sale on Spoonflower.

Judy and I have only communicated through e-mail, yet I feel like I know her.  Well Judy has just opened up a shop on etsy which she calls Chasing Mini.  Please stop by, mark her shop a favorite and browse around.

One of the most inspiring things for me is when one of my customers shares what they create using my fabric designs.

Judy is from Brisbane, Australia, and she creates the most gorgeous outfits for little girls.

Here is another design of Judy's.

Don't you just love them?

When my girls were little, I loved everything pink and pretty.  Looks like they have grown up, but I still haven't.

I still love to play with pretty pink designs.  How fortunate when a customer shares her work with me.

sigh.  this one and the Little Ballerina were printed in Cotton Voile.

And so was Birds-on-a-line in Pink.
and blue.
So, please stop by and see Judy's shop, Chasing Mini on etsy.

You're Invited.

To a note card party.
My lovely friend Vee from A Haven For Vee is hosting the most delightful party.  It's all about cards.  She is going to create a Mr. Linky party and host a Note Card Party on March 21st.   It's all about which photographs from your blog you would use for a note card.

The song for this post is Thank Heaven for Little Girls.  Speaking of girls, Bev is hosting another Pink Saturday over at How Sweet The Sound.  I have added lots of pink inspiration on my Pink Saturday board on Pinterest. Pink Saturday is Pink and Green today for St. Patrick's Day.

These are amazing Karen! Your designs translate beautifully for clothing. Do you have a Flickr page yet for people to post what they make with your designs?
