Be Yourself




Being a little different - and yes, unique here today!  This is probably how my hair looks every morning when I wake up.......or maybe it's Jim after SEEING my hair in the morning when I wake up!!

Either way, this is a cute little gal with that top knot of yellow feathers.  It's from the Birds of a Feather set by The Alley Way Stamps.  I colored her with Copics and then paper pieced the polka dot strip across her belly to match the sides.  Added the die cut heart and tiny sequin.  Her eyes were covered with Glossy Accents and the rest of the sequins added.  The sentiment, Jibber Jabber, is also from The Alley Way Stamps.

I'll enter in the Be Inspired challenge from TAWS.



Thanks for stopping by......
Lynn

This is just too funny, Lynn! Love the yellow feather top knot. Is there some rule that says we all have to look that way upon waking when we've passed the 60 year mark? lol NC

Hello Lynn,

I managed to enter your blog... yaay!

This card is as funny as your story and it brought a smile to my face.

My short hair also looks kinda funny in the morning when I wake up and Aleeza often has a good laugh at my expense, rather at the expense of my hair.

We are trying to finalize the deal for the home.

Love,

Monica xxx
