Changed My Mind

     I love the expression on this gal's face!  She's the freebie for the month of June on The East Wind's FB challenge.  She looks exactly like a friend of mine when she was annoyed by something, usually me!  :-D  She would just give me that stare...


I started with the sketch from Sketch Saturday.


      On this card, I combined something new (the image) with something old (the die set and the ribbon.)  The image is colored with Promarkers, then die cut with a framing die from Spellbinders.  Both ribbons are from my stash and I layered everything onto Ocean Blue CS.   I added pearls to the die cut and to two of the corners.  The sentiment is printed and hand cut, matted, then hand cut again.  I mounted it on dimensional dots.

     The new week is underway, and the new month of June is speeding by.  Can you believe the first week of it is already gone?  I guess we have to get through another day or two of 100 degree temperatures even though they had predicted that we'd drop into the 90s today.  I know the hot, hot, hot temps of summer have just started but I do hate hot weather and will be so glad when it cools off and begins to feel like fall.  No, I'm not wishing away the summer -- just wishing I lived somewhere with much cooler days and nights from June through August.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST POST YOUR COMMENT, IT'LL BE THERE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.
