I’ve emailed you to get your mailing address! 

Now, I’ve finally made myself sit down and make something.  I’ve had tons of ideas lately, but can’t seem to make it into the craft room to execute them.  I wanted to play along with my girlies over at iCopic with their red hair challenge, so I pulled out Drucilla.  I mean, a redhead is supposed to have super crazy hair, right?? 

I also had to play with the March Sketch For You to Try.  Dru is a little large for the sketch, but I {heart} the way this turned out!  I know you’re not supposed to say that about your own cards, but it feels good to like something I’ve made again.  As I’ve said before, one way I get my mojo going is to grab a bunch of challenges and pull them all together to make a card.  So the other challenges I’m adding this to are:

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps #119: CASE a Krafty girl  I chose one of my all time favorite designers, Michelle Boyer – I adore everything she does!  Seriously, if you’re not a follower of hers already, you need to become one!  I used the same stamp and sentiment, somewhat of the same layout and the cute little wood button.

Paper Sundaes #110: Green or Good Luck  Green paper pieced dress and bloomers

Papertake Weekly: anything goes

The Pink Elephant #138: Lets see those layers (at least 3)

A couple of extra details here: her dress is paper pieced, which meant that I had to stamp her little Voodoo doll again and pop that over the dress.  The pinheads are dotted with black enamel accents.  The teal border behind her is the heart border die from PTI…since it got totally covered on the front, I added one over a strip of the background paper to the inside of the card.  Lastly, the little heart button is tinted with the Studio Calico Mister Huey’s Bluegrass spray.  Such a fun little addition! 

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!  I’ll try to make my rounds in the next couple of days since I’ve been so very absent from blogland…I got lost on Pinterest!  lol  Toodles! ;o) lyss
