Taking myself "Not So Seriously"!

Good Day My Friends!

I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.  It's dull and overcast here today, a good day to curl up with a book or some stamps.  I got up early and had a lovely breakfast and my Latte.  Can't get started without one.!! 

Yesterday's  post was a picture frame, and now I am looking at it and thinking,  Humm this would work with a baby picture.  Yes it would, especially a pink one.  My DD is pretty sure she is expecting a little girl.  So I will be working on that one in a little while.

Today's offering is not a card or any of the usual suspects but Business cards.  I need to have them in my pocket at all times and every so often I do a pile of them.   I try to make them fun.  What's the point of doing this craft if I can't make them personal.?? Right?

So here you go. - (and of course I have to use a retiring stamp set to go with this month's theme)  The set I used is one that I am sorry to see go.  It was introduced in the catalog last year and I really find the whimsical look is something that SU doesn't have much of.  (Not a criticism just an observation)

"Not so Seriously"

Is she not an absolute Hoot!  Love this look!  I used Melon Mambo, Blush Blossom, Crumb Cake and Basic Black  markers.  This is a lot of coloring but since I like to color and find it very relaxing, no problems.  When doing so many I can sit for hours with my hubby and watch TV (well really listen to it) and that way he feels like I am spending time with him.  It works! hahaha

Here's the whole gang!  I used various markers in contrasting colors but stayed with the Crumb Cake for the hair.  Can't wait to see people's faces when I give these ones out :O)!

Back tomorrow with more retired stamp sets!  Have a great day!  Brightly colored call me hugs!


  1. Great idea!!! I'm a fairly new demonstrator and love to see ideas for projects that can be used to promote my new business! TFS!
