Friends with Flair ~ Face the Sunshine Tag

I ordered the Phyllis Harris stamp, "Face the Sunshine" with my last Unity stamp order, and managed to color it up...I thought it would make a perfect bookmark for my niece to use now that she is in school help remind her of summer! She actually started school three weeks, that seems so early to me!

I dyed the ribbon myself...I'll share more about that next week, but here's a closer look!

I do love the style of Phyllis Harris' illustration...I need to save up to get some more of her sets...the hardest part is choosing which ones...since they are all so adorable!

Here's hoping that she will like it!
