Isn't this paper so pretty :)
I coloured up this cute Pure Innocence image with my Copic markers. I then paper pieced her dress with some of the pattern paper from this same collection.
I drew and coloured the sidewalk on some X-Press It paper and then adhered it to the base of the card.
Popped the image up with some dimensional foam.
It was going to be to difficult to fussy cut the skipping rope out, so I made my own with some twine.
I was planning on just cutting a square shape out from the image, but it covered to much of the background paper and I wanted the birdies to be focused.
So I fussy cut her out, and my whole card took a whole different turn.
I like how it turned out.
Don't you love when that happens. You plan for a project to be a certain way, but comes out so different then what you had planned. You get 2 ideas out of one project ;)
The inside of this card.
Onto My Day:
I had to go for my yearly check up today.
Everything seemed good. Well, I guess I should say nothing has really changed, lol.
As I was leaving, I had to make an appointment for Heather.
When the receptionist punched in her name she asked me: "Did you say Heather was your daughter?"
Me: "Yes, she is."
Receptionist: "Is she 21 yrs old."
Me: "Yes, she is."
Receptionist: "I thought you were about that age! I was shocked to see your daughter 21!"
Me: "Seriously, lol. I have been told I look young, but not that young."
Receptionist: "Well can I ask how old you are?"
Me: " I am going to be 45 this July."
Receptionist: " Wow, whats your secret? What type of cream do you use on your face."
Now I was going to say something really silly and get her going, but I just couldn't do it.
Me: "I don't use anything on my face. It must be all those preservatives in the chips and pop I eat."
Receptionist: "And you eat junk food too, its just not fair."
I thought it was funny.
Why am I telling you all this? Because I can, lol.
Yup, I am shouting it loud and proud, because any day now everyone is going to think I am twice my age not 1/2 my age, so I will take it when I can ;)
Hope you all had a creative Thursday :)
Tomorrow I am making a run for the border ;)
