I Told You So...


Ever had to bite your tongue when you wanted to say this oh so badly?  Or the joyous moment when you can point your finger and spout, "ha ha."   I'm usually the recipient of the fun bantering, but I have a special card just in case, one glorious day I can finally say the words, "Way to go slick...just couldn't listen to me could ya? Just HAD to go and try that on your own."  Well, that day may never come, but what the heck, the card was fun to make and I enjoyed the process.

Card base was run through embossing folder and inked with white craft ink and then stitched.  The copic colored image received a crepe paper fringe and stitching.  For a ribbon strip I used a wide band of tan elastic and placed a crocheted banner that I made atop it.  Added a yellow bow, a handmade hat pin from a straight pin and even threw in a couple wilted flowers.  The flowers are Prima Flowers, tinted with TH Vintage Photo DI and spritzed with water to sag.  The leaves are highlighted with a bit of the same.  Needed a little 'umph' at the top so I included the 'OOPS!' banner as well.
Good ol' Stella with her keen since of humor can be found here at Bugaboo if you've taken kindly to her.  We sure would love for your to show us what you've been up to lately at Make It Monday for our linky party #88 and remember the prize is from Bugaboo and they never disappoint!

Here is my
PICK OF THE WEEK
The wonderful assortment of musical notes and this beautiful image all in white and black make for an original and unique style.  This really caught my eye.
Thank you to Angela at Mijn Hobbyhonk for sharing this with us.
Loved having you stop in to my little ink spot in the world.  Before you go, be sure to grab some tea and cheesecake on the way out!
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
Lisa xx

Hello Q
Great card,Stella always plays her part so well, the 'oops' is the modus operandi for sure. It brings the whole piece together. And only you could get away with making a card with wilted flowers!!!!I must say I am really impressed with your crochet border, it adds a different texture and creates movement to the piece.

There was a day that I thought I was actually going to bite through my tongue from the excessive restraint I showed...I decided a tongue was definitely needed for eating, so I just let er rip most of the time:)! love your coloring and of course a fantastic design.
