Hi Friends! Thanks for all your sweet comments--I'm feeling the love!
For a couple of months I've been wanting to post a card for Unity's Friends with Flair, and I finally decided to just do it! I actually made the card for a PaperCrafts submission (didn't feel the love), but I still adore this card and laugh every time I see it.
I originally made this card with my aunt in mind. She used to tell people that she was adopted (she wasn't) because she couldn't believe her super straight-laced parents were actually her parents. She was a free spirit who crawled out of her bedroom window the night of her high school graduation and headed to the South (this was in the 1940s...she was definitely a rebel). So while she saw the rest of her family as ultra-square, she was the artsy rebel...the cool one. I could hear her saying this sentiment in a joking way. Okay, I'm rambling. Here's the card:
I used Unity's "One of a Kind" stamp and colored it with Copics. Love that stamp set! I paper pieced the outfits and hands, and I made the tongue-and-cheek sentiment in Word to go with the idea. I gave the rebel girl a tan, too. Maybe she was making cards on her yacht.
Anyhoo, I wanted to share my excitement that Kristina Werner featured my "Head and Shoulders" card as one of her featured 6 for this week's Online Card Camp. She's one of my crafting idols, so I was too excited to sleep (which is why I'm still awake and blogging). Thanks, Kristina!
Thanks for looking! Have a great day and weekend!
