Suck it Up!

You have noooooooooo idea how much I hear this at work!

You may, or may not know that I work in an IT department...you got it, technology...it changes as fast as I change my underwear! Quite often we find ourselves having to introduce new technology to the not-so tech-savvy world. Fortunately I don't usually have to do that myself, but I work with a gal who does, and sadly she is leaving that prestigious role for a new job. One of her fav sayings in our weekly staff meetings that go over the course of the last seven days is 'suck it up'. That is what she wants to say to those change resistant folk, but business etiquette prevents it...so she gets it out of her system every Wednesday morning in our staff meeting.

Now that you know the background you can understand why I just HAD to make Stamping Bella's Suck it Up Stella for her departure. The sentiment on the tag on the front of the card was computer generated and composed by yours truly, then I used the 'suck it up' sentiment that came along with Stella for the inside of the card. You might also notice that little Kajinker flower...I seriously love those things and every card I make I pull them out to see it they will mesh in...I think it meshed here perfectly! As usual, I coloured her with copics, shaded with pencils and cut her out with my nesties. What did we ever do before those nesties came along?

Well, that's my story of suck it up Stella! Hope you enjoyed it and if you have any other just 'perfect' opportunities to use her I would love to hear about it...I really think she has a lot of potential and plan on putting her to good use!

Your coloring is always fabulous!! I just received this image on Friday and have not yet inked it up. I keep working with my Copics, but they never look as gorgeous as yours. I tend to get frustrated with the Copics and revert back to my medium of choice - water coloring with Tombow markers.
