...but you can be immature forever!
Bwaaahahahah! Wouldn't that be a GREAT sentiment for this card! I think I'm on a roll! I read it somewhere once, but for the life of me I can't remember where so I can't give credit. (remember, that memory loss thing due to aging)
So...it's FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!! whoooohooo! And I'm taking the afternoon off so that makes it ever BETTER! But it won't be all fun and games! This is the LAST full weekend I have my boys at home before they are off to school so we got lots planned! Last minute shopping this afternoon, having the fam over tomorrow for a major Thai dinner feast (I make the BEST pad Thai, spring rolls and chicken satay). I asked the boys if they had a 'last meal' request and Alex requested Thai...so that is what is on the menu for tomorrow. Derek wants blackened beef filet so that will be Sunday's dinner. On top of all that I have a few cards to make for some special b'days and anniversaries! YIKES! And for anyone who was in my copic class last weekend you may recall I said that I suck at time management! I'm really good at putzing around though!
Enough of my personal life and on to the real reason you are here! BELLARIFIC FRIDAY! Meahni was the sketch master AGAIN this week and I gotta admit, it looked simple enough but gave me some grief! Lot's of pieces and I don't do well with that. Then for some 'who knows' reason I decided I wanted to sew on my card. So I pulled out the beloved Bernina, dusted her off and threaded her up. Not too sure on which needle to use on paper (ack!) I chose the smallest size needle I had which is really meant for microfibre. Clearly, it is not good for paper because if you look close (please DON'T) you will see some skipped stitches. If this was a dress I would have ditched it. And the big difference between a dress and a card is that when you sew on fabric, you can rip out your stitches without any trace of it....CAN'T do that on paper! There is NO room for error! So for all you paper sewers out there, I commend you! I bow to you! I worship you!
Before the sewing disaster I think I did a decent job of colorin' up Stellarina! I stamped her with memento ink on bella's bestest paper and used copics of course, then I shaded around her with prisma pencils and gamsol.
