A Posey for you

You must know by now how I love my SUN BONNET GIRLS from Bugaboo.  I thought a dash of Lipstick Natural Copic marker would pop the flowers with color but not SHOUT out over the girl.  A little touch of blues and why I chose browns for everything else, I don't know, but I like it.

CCC July Reveal

I sent Greta in Oregon this card, a total "friendship" card.  I love this sentiment.I got to use a little chocolate chip boy from Bugaboo.  Does this make you hungry for chocolate chip cookies?  It does me.  I'm ready for my milk and cookies before I go to bed.  Happy cookie crumbs to somebody out there.  This is the closest I'm coming to an actual cookie tonight.

This is my Chai

Somehow this purple haired Stella connected with this purple hued background and stuck.  She's certainly awfully fond of her chai.  I decided to use some beautiful lace on this card and I'm making it for a friend whose favorite beverage is chai tea.  I made up the sentiment and hope she likes this card especially made for her.


Remember that Bugaboo has 50% off stamps in July.

I know It's Not Monday!

After I announced that I knew it wasn't Monday, I had to go check for sure on my calendar.  I really do think chocolate CAN make up for Mondays.  How about all of you?

I do think this lady is fun and funny.  Gosh these Bugaboo images just color up so fast.  In no time, I've got to find another image to color, tsk tsk.

Yes, the background square scalloped panel is a recycled item - a tissue box, semi-cheap kind, but it certainly does provide a pretty background.  Hope you have some chocolate today too (even if it isn't Monday).


Close-up of the image.  You see that brown button?  It's hiding an opps in coloring - you know OOPS - I've got green mixed in the blue and it doesn't want to go away!

Blue Blue Blue

Blue Blue Blue is the color of this maid.  When I saw they had a maid with a button, I knew I had to have her.  I've got quite an accumulation of these wonderful sun bonnet gals from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I just love coloring them.

We've got a challenge going on at Die Cut Divas for Buttons and Bows.  This gal made the scene with a bow in her bonnet rolling an oversize button.  I couldn't think of a sentiment when I made this, but she'll go to a friend who sews with a suitable note inside..

"Don't talk to me until I've had my coffee"

I thought of naming this Untapped Potential, but then, I thought "Let's be Realistic".  When I drove up with a girlfriend to Reno, Nevada for a Toastmasters' Conference, Lesley made a speech about me waking up feeling full of energy.  Her quote was "Don't talk to me until I've had my coffee".  I think this gal needs her coffee before anyone talks to her.

I have to say, cuter in real life.
