Ok- I'm really trying to be better at posting. I had some time last night and a co-worker has a birthday (great combination for a stamper). I know that she likes purple, so I thought I would search through my stash and come up with something. Sometimes I just don't get how my mind works... but anyway. First, I looked for a sketch. Again, I turned to Julee's Mojo Monday sketches. I found one I really liked and looked like a great option. Now.... what stamp to use. That took about 10 minutes and then I remembered that I have ALL of THESE images from the PIF thread. So I start going through them one by one and... voila! Paige has a present. That will be perfect! I reach for my handy dandy copics and go to town. I have now finished coloring and realize that the sketch calls for an Oval scalloped piece. This image really won't fit in a oval. I guess I'll try a circle. Over to the CB with my nesties..I cut out the image and a scalloped back and... ooooppppppppppsss, this is too big to justify putting a square behind it like the sketch.. So I improvise again. Below is what came out. So, thanks to Julee for unknowingly providing my inspiration for this card!
