I also made a Resolution this year. I normally don't, but for 2009 I really want to be more organized. I'm generally really organized but I seemed to have lost it in 2008. I like being organized, I like knowing where everything is and everything having a place..... It's time to reclaim my space.
Here's Snowbunny Bella. Just like you, I'm not quite sure why she isn't wearing pants. I would think that if she needs to wear that big heavy coat that perhaps her legs would be a bit chilly. Maybe she lives here in NC though, I saw several people in shorts yesterday on the 63 degree January day... Even though we've been here 3 winters, it's still weird to me.
K, I used DP from SU! and from Basic Grey's Wassail pack. I admit that I made the base for a Christmas card and I never got around to stamping an image for it. Bella was colored with Copic markers and SU! markers. I tried to make the fur look like fur. Her hat reminded me of this giant Russian looking hat that my mom got in Canada in the 1960's It was giant and furry and I'm sure very warm during the Canadian winters. I do know that we (as precocious kids) politely asked her not to wear it in public any more.... I digress...
I got Craveabella because there is a pregnancy epidemic going on right now. I have 4 pregnant friends. 4... there must be something in the water... I'm drinking Diet Coke. :) So this one is for one of my oldest friends who happens to be expecting her 2nd baby. The tech said that she was 80% sure that it was a girl. Just 80%... Mmmm, I would like to start buying pink stuff and my mom needs to know so she can start her "winter project". 80%'s pretty good but there's always the "what if". I'm routing for a girl since 95% of my friends have had boys. I think we need some more girls AND the clothes are SO flippin' cute! Kristin, if you read this post, this one's on its way for you!
I did a LOT of paper piecing on this one. I pieced the footstool, the chair and her shirt. I thought about the doing the pillow but then I decided that Kristin would prefer to sit in a sparkly pillow. I also added Stickles to her pink slippers. There's puff paint on the sundae to make it pop. All the DP and cardstock are from SU!
I added this sentiment to the inside of the card....
Alright, I have a pile of clothes to fold. Wish me luck!
