Cheers to everyone!

I've had such a wonderful weekend! Yesterday I spent the day with my BFF'S, Paula, Pauline, Lynn and Kathy at the Novi Stamping show. The show was not so great, lots of fav vendors not there this year, but the company was wonderful! I also found out on Friday that our classes at the Archivers Scrapfest at the Mall of America are SOLD OUT! OMG...SO excited! And today I spent the morning creating a background in my journal for one of my petite dolls that I have drawn with techniques I've learned in Suzi Blu's Petit Doll Academy...don't you just love the name of that class? I'm totally in LOVE with Suzi! HOW DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO FIND HER?

All of this excitement deserves a good glass of wine and a toast to the Babe's...Cheers to a good weekend! There is no other bella besides Winobella that could help me celebrate the end of this wonderful weekend...and of course, we need a toast of Cheers to mark such a wonderful weekend.

Now it is confession time. See those little smudge lines and dots above and below the cheers sentiment? Well, the smudge line above the cheers was a stamping faux pas so I used one of my fine copic liners and added the three dots at the end of the line and repeated the pattern below the sentiment in an opposite direction! What do ya think? A decent save if I don't say so myself! ESPECIALLY because I stamped it directly onto m coloured image and there was NO WAY I was gonna start overl.

I stamped her on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured her with the following copic markers. Of course, I added some shading with pencils, and sponged the edges with versamagic chalk ink.

I'll be back tomorrow with some doodling in my art journal! A new fav pastime! And don't forget, our Bellarific challenge this week is paper get out that pointy tool and pierce some paper!

toodles...(or doodles!)...Linda.

LOVE your save. What a clever idea and I didn't even notice until I read the post so it was perfect. Can't believe your class is sold out and I haven't even confirmed I can go yet. :(
