Hello all -- I'm posting as I'm watching Idol so pardon the typos :)
One of my good friends is leaving our workplace --Friday is her last day & I am sooooooo sad :( She was very pregnant when I started last summer & had her baby just a few weeks later. When she came back from maternity leave she was placed on our team & we immediately bonded. Who knew just a few months later she'd leave....sniffle.....I will miss her greatly! I bought her a small gift & made her this card:
This is Tilda in Paris --an oldie but a goodie! I got this as one of my two stamps when I won Jacque's Sunday Sensations candy a few weeks ago. Thank you Jacque & Diana! She's always been a favorite & I'm so happy to finally have her!
I used Prismas & Goo Gone to color the image --cut it out & placed her on a panel I stamped with SU's French Script. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink & the papers are K&Co Julianne. I used lots of SU's Artichoke Ink ---for the background & distressing. I think this is my favoritest color of all the SU colors :) I used the awesome sketch on the Friday Sketchers blog this week ---Rach's first time hosting & of course she had a great sketch! I would expect nothing less from her!
I had to include a close up because I'm also entering this into the Just Magnolia challenge which is anything goes WITH THE OPTION of adding glitter. So I added just a wee bit of glitter to her hair bows & I used Sparkle Fluff on her beret ---which is kind of glittery :)
As I was making this card, I kept saying "Au Revoir, girlfriend" in my head ----so I decided that's what needed to be on the inside. Of course, I don't have any such stamp so I had to print it on my computer. Couldn't get the color quite right --but I'm hoping she won't notice, lol
I'm kind of nervous, because NOBODY knows about my "secret hobby" at work. It's just not something I talk about. So....people will be seeing this that don't understand the passion of paper crafters. I'm ready for the "you do THIS in your spare time? Why?" lol......
XOXO I Love You More
