On Tuesday night, I was playing with this lovely Tilda--I hadn't colored her ever though I'd had her for a while. And she's such a cutie! But I was to find out that she was a bit demanding . . .
"Why did you color me? Why am just laying here on your desk? What are you going to do with me?" I heard her questions all morning and afternoon on Wednesday. She was adorable--I had tried for a summer-looking gauzy feel to her dress--you know the kind that has been washed and is so soft and faded that it's 'almost' white, but still has a hint of the original color? And I was happy with my effort.
Little Red-Head was undaunted, though, and by Wednesday night, I had to cut her out. She lay on my craft table, giving me 'the look'--"Well, now what?"
So I pulled out some of my favorite paper--the BoBunny dots--and set to work on Thursday afternoon. Mind you, I had every intention of cleaning the house, as we are having company for the weekend--but I felt the constant chatter out of Little Red-Head might keep our guests awake. I cut the center circle with my Nestabilities die, and punched the lace strip--and a few hours later, she was happily nestled in with some crocheted flowers.
I imagine I'll hear from her a time or two yet--we haven't agreed whether she's going to be a birthday card or a thinking of your card, or what. For now, though, we are BOTH happy!
Supplies: Paper--GP (white), BoBunny (Dark Denim Dot), green scraps for leaves; punches--Martha Stewart, and unknown large leaf punch; pearls--Crystal Stickers; Nestabilities (large circle); Magnolia--Striped Tights (Magnolia-licious); hand crocheted flowers by me. Copic markers as shown, except for hair colors--I honestly don't remember all the ones I used.
Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments, so please feel free to leave one!
