Lil Pumpkin


Wow, this weeks sketch was a brain twister.  I am not sure if it's the sketch, my brain, or the dp I was using, lol.  It was like putting together a puzzle and I was just hoping all the pieces would fit.  And I was hoping the color combinations would work.....yeah, they do. 

Doesn't she remind you of the 2 1/2 year old who is determined to pick up and carry a pumpkin that outweighs her?   I so remember this age and it cracks me up.  The determination and shear stubbornness to "do it myself".  When my middle son was 2, he carried a 10 pound sack of potatoes up a flight of stairs.  He was my Bam-Bam for sure.  My daughter used to pick up big things to carry and because she was so slight, it would tip her over, lol.  My youngest son would figure out how to get it from point A to point B, by either log rolling it or talking someone else into doing it, lol. 

Have you seen the MFT's Laura is carrying in her store, Loves Rubberstamps?  She just added a few and can get mostly anyone you are looking for you, but you just gotta ask by emailing her.  She is also carrying these fabulous die-namics and Memento inks.  My favorite adhesive for laying these dies down is The Best Glue Ever!  Plus there are loads of other Stamps, Dies, and Goodies in her store, all in one fell swoop! 

The paper I am using today is Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor.  I love this DP!!!  Heck, I love all the dp, lol, who am I kidding?  I paired it with some off brand white for layering, SU Kraft and SU black.  I've got some MFT paper and some new Bazil Paper Card Stock I am hoarding away, lol.  I need to break these out and use them to see if I like them, but there is just like a page or two of each color, so I am reluctant to use them up.  What if I love them?  Then I will HAVE to order more and I will HAVE to wait til it gets here.  You are laughing because you know exactly what I mean, lol. 

The copics I used today are: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E93, E33, E31, C7, C5, C3, YR24, YR23, YR20, YR31, YR27, TG99, YG95, YG93. 

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a great day!
