Diva

So here's a stamp which is just perfect for the occasion. Tomorrow is the birthday of a friend who reminds me SO much of this Bella Diva that I could not resist using my brand new stamp.

I only recently got a couple of the Diva stamps from Stamping Bella, and I cannot tell you why I had never ordered them before. I just love them, they are great for woman my age, lol! The only difference with this image and myself is that I would have had 3 tequilas piled up on top of one another. I am not so sure though that I would be able to balance them that well. Then again, I would not have wasted time balancing them, but had them instead.

As usual I coloured the image with prisma pencils, but I did mix my lyras in there too. I used them for the hair. I cut the image out with nesties and mounted it on 3D pads.

When I put the card together I realised I should've inked the edges of the image a bit, but it was too late, and now it has to stay this way. I also look at it now and think maybe the shoes should've been red too. Oh well maybe next time....

I used this week's Bella sketch for the card, and I have to admit, it made my life SO much easier. I have struggled so with sketches in the past, but this time it was a huge blessing cause I didn't have much time to finish it and not having to figure out a layout was a big help.

Tonight it is 3 below freezing here. Do I need to remind you all how cold I am, probably not. I HATE winter. I can't wait for summer to return... sorry those of you in the northern hemisphere.

Oh just quickly, I met two new South African Crafters in the past week. The one lady, Paola, even has a scrapbooking shop and I had never heard of it, I thought I had sussed them all out, lol!!! I went there today, spent money what else.... don't tell. The other lady, Rene, lives a bit far away so I have not met her in person, but they each have a blog, so if you interested go check them out.

Paola's blog, which she only setup last night, is here; and Rene's blog you can find here.

Now I am off to bed, it's late, it's freezing and I need lots of beauty sleep.
