MM #125

IMG_6266


Happy Friday, for me this week just flew!
Gearing up for a busy weekend, my niece is getting married tomorrow.
For those of you who remember her shower from the summer HERE, the answer is yes, the bride will be married with purple hair.


I have a card to share today for Merry Monday. The theme this week is transportation. I knew right away I wanted to use my woodblock Hero Arts Car with Tree stamp that I bought two years ago and just inked up for the first time. A huge accomplishment the I would able to fussy cut the image without amputating it. I even cut out the windows and I cut it before I coloured it just in case.  Now you are going to be seeing a lot of the Mama Elephant Femme Frames dies because I am so stinking excited to have it. It was out of stock for a long time so now that I have it I want to use it on everything.  So have patience with me.

Super cuteness on that little car, with its darling Christmas tree carefully perched on the top, climbing the wintry hill. Such a festive scene (kind of looks like the weather we had last week!). As for your niece's hair colour for her wedding: EXCELLENT! Now there's a gal with sparkle and spirit!
Hugs~c
