Shoes & Barbie

Ah...let's talk about Barbie first, what do you think? But don't jump ship after seeing my Barbie card; stick around for my next card which is pretty darn funny too (well I think so, we'll see what YOU think!)!

I am such a sucker for funny sentiments; I love them! BUT sometimes I end up with a sentiment and I have no clue what to do with it. It's too small to be the focal point and I can't quite figure out what to do. For the sentiment inside this card, I asked my BFF for some ideas and alas, my Barbie stamp came to life. tee hee

This young lady is from MFT's BC Dzyns set called "And Then I Said". Such a great stamp set!!

Well here's what she said, "If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?". Come on, doesn't that make you giggle? The sentiment is from Whipper Snapper and I just love it! It just makes me laugh every time.

The girl was colored with Copics and mounted onto a rectangle scalloped nestie. I so love my nesties - I need more!! The DP is from SU!

I might still add something on the outside - maybe a sentiment in the lower right-hand corner, or maybe some jewels - not sure yet.

Next up I created a card while thinking about my BFF. You see, she has a SERIOUS shoe problem - that girl owns more shoes than my entire family put together! I AM NOT kidding! This image is from MFT's "Window Shopping" set.

Look how that window shines!!! The only thing I did wrong was I should have put the girl in a blue dress; my BFF loves blue. Alas, I was coordinating paper, so it's just not to be! I colored the shoes with Copics and then added Crystal Effects all around the images and the girl. So you "think" this is a window? It's really my BFF drooling down the window - LMBO! :D

All the DP is from SU! and covers the base card which is actually SU! Ivory. I added several layers, a ribbon & bow and a couple border punched strips. See that black ribbon? Yeah, it used to be white, but I colored it black with my Copics, I so love doing that!

I'm glad you popped in - I hope one or both of these gave you a chuckle for the day! Hugs, ~M.

Love it! That Barbie is colored so beautifully and the inside made me laugh right out loud! My gosh, you won't believe it, but I've got a window done pretty much the same way sitting on my table at home! Great job with the window shopping. And you could have gotten away with the blue for a dress. You can do anything you want! Love the both!
