Lisa used the brand new Make Yourself at Home stamp set to create this delightful paper pieced scene. I'd love to sit a spell in the light of that cute green polka dotted floor lamp!

Inge added a pretty polka dotted dress for the giant pencil-wielding cutie from the Straight to the Point stamp set and Die-namics. I love how she added some lavender to the collar of her dress with a marker for extra detail and to tie it into the rest of her design.
