Football girl

My family is obsessed with sports. Football, to be specific. If there had been a powderpuff league growing up, I certainly would have played. Which makes me think now...I'm glad there wasn't. Because I would have been the injured one. Over and over again.

But, I can get my football fill with this cutie pie little stamp from My Besties, Touchdown Trixie. I bought her on clearance at Joann, but unfortunately she isn't available any longer. It look me awhile to get into My Besties, but they are just the most adorable. Ever.
I colored Trixie up with my Copics, fussy cut her out, and then popped her up on this scene I made with some Pebbles paper and a sunshine stencil (actually a die doubling as a stencil) from Stampin Up. I hand lettered the sentiment. After taking this picture, I put glossy clear accents on her eyes (which I actually don't recommend). Oy.

And if you look closely enough, you can see where Cat 1 got her fur into the stamp...

Thanks for popping by today!

The Amigos

So, I've wanted to purchase Three Amigos by Mama Elephant for a loooong time. So, I was so surprised when I found a variant called "Two Amigos" At Joann Fabrics! Yes, by Mama Elephant! (Sorry, they don't have it listed on their website so I can't link you). AND it was 50% off! What I love is that the critters are totally different than those in the Three Amigos set, so someday I'm gonna have five amigos!!

The picture isn't that great. I took it really late at night, so I had to hold it up to the light source. ugh. But anyway, isn't it super cute?!

I used my Copics to color up the bunny and the teddy (I used a stippling technique on teddy to make him look furry).

I masked the images off and colored up my background with Pumice Stone distress ink, some stencil brushes, and this stencil from My Favorite Things. Gotta love stencils!

Thanks for popping by today! See you next time!
