Girls' Night Out


Hello!

I have another card to share that I made with stamps from My Favorite Things. I'm really having fun with these sets lately -- they're much more fun to color with Copics! *grin* By the way, thanks Mom and Grandma for the Christmas money!!

Since it's been so darn cold and snowy here (and in many places lately), I was thinking how nice it would be to be inside on a cold evening with a glass of liquid warmth! It's Girls' Night Out at the cafe -- so pretend you are there at the table with me, okay? The sentiment is from Baby It's Cold Outside, and the other images are from At the Cafe. I used the corner scroll image to create the pattern on the awning -- I thought it looked like the curly snowflake pattern on the Figgy paper. I used Liquid Applique for the snow, Crystal Effects on the glasses, and Stickles on the dress and shirt. I machine stitched around the dp and added Glitter Dots to the corners.

As I was taking the photo of this card, I had this conversation with Caroline (our 4-year old):
Caroline: "Did you make that card?
Mom: "Yes. Do you like it?"
Caroline: "Where did their heads go??"
Mom (laughing): "I don't know!"

I do love MFT's Headless Woman. She could be any of us, you know? Most days I feel like a chicken with my head cut off anyway! :) Thanks for coming by today -- have a wonderful day!

Stamps: At the Cafe, Baby It's Cold Outside (MFT) Ink: Basic Black, Cool Caribbean Paper: Sahara Sand, Regal Rose, Cool Caribbean, Whisper White, BasicGrey Figgy 6x6 pack Other: Copics, Cotton Candy Stickles, Baby Blue Stickles, Crystal Effects, Liquid Applique, Glitter Dots, dimensionals, sponge, sewing machine

I love your card. My daughter asked me the same question about every card I make with MFT. Sometimes I tell her their hiding in their hat or whatever accessory but she thinks they need heads. LOL Kids are great!
