Eat Dessert First!

I got this great image in an image swap from Flossie. It just cracks me up! Words to live by though, don't you think?!!


This is for Nicola's Sketch #4. I've never made a tent topper card before, so I wasn't really sure of sizes, etc., but this turned out just fine. I wanted it to fit into an envelope, so I used that as my size guideline. The card itself is a 4 1/4" square with rounded corners. The square scallop was cut using Mini Monograms. I used colored pencils and gamsol for the coloring, and I added a couple of Primas with a rhinestone. The card front is DCWV Pocket Full of Posies.


Here are my girls after the music competition on Saturday. They're proudly wearing their medals! Them both wearing striped sweaters was an accident . . . they normally don't dress alike!! I was really proud of them! Then again, I'm always proud of them!

Thanks for stopping by!
