...and today, Izzie has a cupcake

Seems I was on a bit of an Izzie trend! But I love them...that wild curly hair (that I wish I had) those cutie girlie vintage dresses (that I wish I looked good in) and the darling little shoes with ankle sox (okay, i draw the line there!)

This is Izzie with a cherry on top from Stamping Bella. Like just about EVERY card I make, she was stamped on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. I love the turquoise/red color combo and when I think of cherries (or apples) I always seem to want to use gingham ribbon...they just seems to go together!

Another thing I should point out is that she was coloured on white, but cream would have looked better with the cosmo cricket paper. No problem, I'll just sponge the edges with some wheat ink...BUT there was a problem...I forgot all about it and went ahead and stitched. ACK! they was NO WAY I was gonna put the stark white image on that DP so I sponged anyway...know what? makes little difference! Ya sure, it will stain your stitching a bit, but NOBODY would ever notice but you! So if you want to go back on some of your existing cards that have been stitched and add some sponging of color...go for it!

That is about it for today. I've been in a technical training course all week and that is more exhausting than sitting at my desk all day! You can't turn it 'off', even for a moment without losing track of what the instructor is saying. It makes for ONE TIRED BRAIN DEAD BABE at the end of the day! So now, I'm gonna turn it brain, and the computer...and lay my tired self on the sofa and watch some Criminal Minds!

Till Friday!
