Listen Honey ~ God didn't promise it would be easy...


... He just promised it would be worth it!


This Emerson image was sent to me by Stacy (jbgreendawn) at the Stamp Shack.
It makes me smile. : )
It was colored with prismacolor pencils and I doodled around the edge with a fine ZIG pen. The oval at her feet was created using the small SU oval punch. I punched a scrap of cardstock and created a template to color inside.
This is a standard size card 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". I've covered the front with a piece of Stampin' Up chocolate chip and then I cut a curved piece of "Au Chocolate" polka dot. You'll notice I colored in the white dots with my tempting turquoise SU marker. The image is quite large so it is difficult to see how I did the background, but I'll try to explain... I was looking through my June/July Papercrafts Magazine and saw an advertisement for the BoBunny Flex Ruler. This thing looks COOL! Well, at the bottom of the ad is a photo of it and an "actual size' curve. So, I copied it onto cardstock and traced it onto my polka dot paper! EASY as can be and FREE! :) I'll have to try it again with a different image and you'll be able to see it better. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Stamping and smiles 2 u, Pam :)

I love these colors and you made such an adorable card with this image. I never would have thought to make the mask or to color in the polka dots. Thanks for sharing the details.
