There she goes!

She's got her little ladybug backpack on and I'll bet it is empty 'cause she is heading to the Barbie aisle in the local department store!



What do you think? Not that it really matters where she is going 'cause she's a sweetie. This is Bye Bye Girl, a Mo Manning image available in rubber at Stamping Bella. I don't dislike digi, I have quite a seletion of them myself, but there is something about rubber that just makes me happy! She was stamped with Brilliance ink on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. On this image I only used pencil for grass and blue shading. Actually I coloured her to match some entirely different papers but didn't like it in the end so went with these, and had I chose these first, I would have coloured her jacket green. Oh well! You probably didn't even notice.

For those who got the heeby jeebies about my giant man eating centipede you'll be glad to know that we had the house fumigated on Monday! When I came home from work I was very concerned that there was NO smell and NO visible residue anywhere so I was worried that the place was not toxic enough. The next day I went on a hunt to find something dead...anything that would assure me that the toxins were working and finally success...a tiny little dead 'pede' in front of the crawl space door.

Just as I think things are getting better I had a trauma at work this morning. You have to realize that I am still a bit on edge and will pretty much jump at anything that moves right now. So I get to work, check my mail, pick up the phone to return a call and see something scurry in the cradle where the handset sits! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was that classic pede beige and moved FAST! I LEAP out of my chair, THROW the phone onto the desk and I do believe I wailed out a 4 letter word. Well, I work in a LARGE office...with pods and partitioned walls and as I'm standing there about to faint I can see all these heads popping up over the partitioned walls wondering WHAT was going on! It looked like the entire IT department was doing the wave! Oh geeze, I think I need counselling! Pod mate Matty-boy came to my rescue and shook the beast out of the phone and in the end it turned out to be a very fast moving spider disguised as a pede!

That was my excitement for today, let's hope that tomorrow is non-eventful!

Linda, I completely and totally appreciate the fact that you needed to be sure your house was 'toxic' enough...haha. I walked into the bathroom the other day and could HEAR a spider breathing before I saw it...it was THAT big. :) I love those Mo's!!

This is SUCH a fantastic card! I love your coloring as always. Her hair looks wonderful. I wish I could still shop for Barbies, but my 2 boys don't like them and I've already got a house full of stuff I don't need, but I do miss that. :(

I'm glad your "pede" free at home. :)

Good to hear you that you will have no more critter sightings! Nothing's worse that hairy little critters!

STUNNING! Love her & yes I am sure she's on her way to the barbie aisle, at least I would have been when I was that age!

I cannot stop looking at your card - it's absolutely darling!! Your coloring is fabulous!!! I couldn't resist purchasing this sweet image. Now I have to get up the nerve to color her. tfs

I am lol at your 'pede adventures. I'm so like you when it comes to creepy crawlies. I always call to my dh/kisa (knight in shining armor) to "get the bug!" Then, of course, he laughs at me!

Adorable card as always. Keep the peeds to yourself. I don't want any here in Sarnia--LOL.
