Three Little Ole' Ladies

This is the other River City Rubber Works image I coloured up on Sunday night snuggled into my couch! You may or may not know that I just sit and color with no papers in front of me for inspiration. For this one, I started with the turquoise dress...next decided on the cinnamon then hummed and hawed for a bit and went for the purple....well...it ended up being a bit brighter than I had in mind so I knew I'd have a challenge when it came to mount it. I didn't even bother to go thru my stash of paper cause I just knew it would be a futile attempt!

I played around a bit with some lace background stamps because I knew I wanted lace for these little ladies but nothing was working for me. So after work I headed off to Fabricland (for you Americans, it's a poor Canadian substitute for Jo-Ann's) to buy some 'real' lace! I knew that is what it needed! I waited in line NO LESS THAN 15 minutes to get my selections of lace cut because only two people were working. One was on cash and the other was unloading a shipment! LIKE....do that stuff in mid afternoon when us full timers are sitting at our desk! NOT at 4:30 when we are racing around getting our errands done! But I waited patiently without a huff because i WANTED this lace!

You can imagine after waiting for 15 minutes in line i was DETERMINED to use a piece of lace. I bought a length of 4 different ones, and this is what I decided on. Despite the deep purple dress, I think I may have pulled it off!

Well, off to cut ribbon for class tomorrow. I have all papers cut and packaged up for the 4 upcoming classes, just need to get the ribbon done. For once I'm ahead of the game....YAY!!!!!!!!!

Oh...one last thing if you are still with me. I couldn't resist adding my little Westie's to the pic. I can just totally imagine these little ole' ladies being Westie mamma's!

Great job!! I think the lace looks perfect! And, as I look at this card, I am reminded of an old movie: Arsenic And Old Lace - although there were only two elderly ladies:) Wonderful comedy! TFS
