Geisha Girl...




Time for another Fairy Fun Friday challenge. Seems like forever since the last one. This one is Let's here it for the girls. Well I thought Roberta's sweet Gillian would be the obvious choice, but I just love this stamp, I've used her quite a few times. Always makes for an elegant card and she is so beautiful paper pieced. I have coloured the non-pieced parts with copics. The gorgeous papers are the Far East Pack and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made the pins with a mixtures of beads. And the perfectly matching sentiment is from my fellow DT Lynne's store Sentiments 4 You. The gorgeous seam binding is Trisha's Grandma's, thanks Trish!
I have to tell you a little story. We bought a new Toyota a few weeks ago and DH decided to take us for ice cream last night. Well my 5 year old daughter was so misbehaving in the store that I went and sat in the car with her. We had planned on eating our ice cream outside but I was not having any part of it with her bad behavior so we got in the car and left ice creams in hand much to DH's disagreement. Well she wanted a lick of her big brothers and then in return he tried to lick hers (which she shouldn't have had, but it was already made)... anyway she pulled it away and in the process crushed it and you guessed it ice cream everywhere - BLUE Bubblegum flavour. Well DH was not impressed!!!! My oldest son and I said we would clean the car and sent Darling Daughter straight to the bath. But I have to say yay it all came out!!!!
