Sometimes an image just reminds you of someone

Now I'm not gonna say exactly 'who' this one reminds me of because I know she reads my blog sometimes but I'll just say....this is SO her and I think I'll be keeping tucked in a safe place until her birthday rolls around.

On another note, my housekeeper called last night and cancelled her date for today because poor thing is sick as a dog! She sounded terrible. Jane is a total sweetie and has been my right hand for the last 20 years. Without her, I'd never be able to do the things that I do while maintaining a full time job. Now, as crappy as it is that she is sick, for me it was a bit of a weight lifted because I could go plop myself on the couch with the pooch and forgo the 'pre-cleaning' ....okay, so I don't really 'clean' but I do tidy up EVERYTHING and that takes me quite some time. (remember, I craft in my kitchen so there is usually LOTS that has been left out that needs putting away). The bad part is that I'll have to clean my house this weekend :(.

Back to the topic at hand. This is Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls PATTIE and DOTTIE friends FOREVER.

Do you have a forever friend? I have some friends today that I certainly hope will become forever friends and only hope our lives will continue to cross paths so we can remain friends long into our senior years.

For this card, I stamped these gals with Memento ink on bella's BESTEST paper, paired them up with Basic Grey out of print 6x6 paper and started colouring them with copic markers. Again, lots of pencils were used copics just gave me the base...and Ebru's sketch fit perfectly with this 5x7 card.

Next week is easy peasy, just use a Stamping Bella image and anything else goes. That means you can go to one of your fav sketch or colour challenge blogs and combine them all into a bundle and knock off three challenges with one card. Email your card to Emily at by next Thursday to see it on her blog, but if you wanna a chance to win some Bella Bucks, upload your card to SCS using the keyword BELLARIFIC0612. All of the challenge details over on SCS can be found in the forum here.

See ya soon....tonight I pack up stuff for crafty goodness at Paula's tomorrow.

Your colouring of it is just wonderful!

I love your cards so much and your coloring is out of this world. Okay, I give up - I have to have these images. Oh woe is me - I need to win the lottery!!!!!

OMGoodness you did a fab job on these gals! I can't believe you even got shading on those teeny tiny GORGEOUS shoes!! I ordered this image to make a card for my BFF, and if my card comes out a 1/4 of how yours did I'll be thrilled! Hope you're enjoying your time with Pauline and Paula!
