Sitting Pretty




Hi Friends and Family,

If you are family, you are wondering if I got a stamp made that looks like I did when I was little, lol.   Hair disheveled, dress all a mess and "Where are you shoes, Holly?"  I am not sure how many pairs of shoes I lost over my childhood, but I can tell you, quite a few.  My poor parents, I had to have the Buster Brown wide ones too, lol.  So expensive!  I would be thinking to myself, "I wonder if anyone will notice if I pop all these buttons off this chair?"  lol.  I was a mess.

This cute little Mimosa is called Mimosa bare feet.  I picked her up at Loves Rubberstamps Store and paper pierced her little dress, the chair (which will be in Laura's store soon-shhh it's a secret) and colored her with my copics.  I used October Afternoon Sidewalks, PTI blue, and SU brown.  I added some Elements Brads. 

I found this cute little sketch over at "Seems a little sketchy"  And I love that name, lol.  I did shorten the middle pattern though, it balanced the card a little better with my big images. 

A couple reminders.....

1. There is still plenty of time to play in Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week, AND there is a Guest Designer Team spot to win, read all about it at Loves Rubberstamps!

2.  Do you see that cute stamp set on my sidebar?  There is still time to enter, simply click on it and leave a comment and you will be in the drawing to win. 

Thanks for Looking and for you Kind Comments!!!

Holly

Adorable! And how fun that the image looks like you as a child! Too funny about your shoes! A barefoot child is a happy child. :) Your card is really cute and I love the papers you chose. Thanks for joining us at Seems A Little Sketchy!
