By the Cute & Girly challenge – Guest DT projects

I am so excited to share with you my guest designer projects for the September By the cute and girly challenge. This month’s theme is “Indian summer” and I have to say I was a little perplexed as to what to make. One of the sponsors this month is whimsy stamps and they offered some images for the DT to use on their projects. I used one of their images called “Emma swinging” on my card. I also decided to make a sweet little gift box after seeing the fantastic tutorial on the Whiff of Joy tutorial blog. Here are my projects:
