Peace Within

This is my Stamp TV sketch challenge. Now the story behind this card :). I went to my girlfriends house Sunday at 10:30 am (she is also a demo) to use some of her new stamps and her new copics, (mine are not here yet) We talked, laughed, looked through all her new goodies experimented with inks and mediums and when I looked at the time it was 3:30 and I had done nothing but stamp and color this image :), I had to bring it home to finish it. But we had a good time.

Stamp is Stamping Up new one "Peace within" which I do not own yet.. Colored it with copics, Cut out using my nesties, paper pieced the pillow with the same design paper for background, which is SU, I do not know which one because my girlfriend has so much and gave me this piece. Added a little bling bling and ribbon from Micheals using my new "bow easy" This thing is great, I love toys that makes things easier.

Well have a Great Day

Just had to share this funny joke I saw this morning..

BATS IN THE BELFRY

Three pastors were having lunch at a diner.

The first one said, "You know, since the summer started I've been having a lot of trouble with bats in the loft and attic at my church. I've tried everything -- noise, spray, cats -- nothing seems to scare them away."

The second pastor replied, "Me too. I've got hundreds of those things living in my belfry and in the narthex attic. I had the whole place fumigated, but they still won’t go away."

The third pastor then said, "I had that problem a while ago. So I baptized them and made them members of the church. Haven't seen one back since!"

You did such a nice job with the paper piecing on that pillow. I also like the variations in coloring the chair. Beautifully done.

I'm glad you had a good time with your friend! Your card is adorable, and thanks for sharing the joke! If you don't mind, I think I'll copy and paste it for my pastor. She'll probably share that one in our newsletter. Thanks for all the inspiration!!!

Love Ya!

Aren't Copics fun fun fun???!! I'm addicted. My new saying will be "I'll never meet an image I won't want to color!" :)

Your card is so pretty!! You did an awesome job on the coloring and I love that image with the kitty soaking up some sun on the chair!!

I'm glad you got to play with stuff and visit with your friend. Those are the best days!!

This turned out beautifully becky! I love it! Yanno, I ordered and received one of those "bow easy's" too but, I am a hands-on learner. I watched the videos and read the instructions that came with it but, I just can't seem to figure it out! I know I'm probably making it harder than it has to be....LOL as usual.

Cute card! My cats have their favorite places to sleep too, and they look as comfortable as the cat in the image.

Holly said...

I had to chuckle at your post not only because of the joke but because your visit to stamp at your friend's house is exactly what happens to me when I go to my friend's house to stamp!
Your one card turned out beautifully though!

This is a wonderful card Rebekka! I'm feeling more at peace just seeing it...of course, it could also be the two post dinner martinis that I've just had - LOL!

In all seriousness, you card is beautiful!
