I'd really love to but...

… I'm watching my aerobics class.  OMG, is this a riot or what? Smiley And it's SO ME!  Seriously, I hate exercising!  I always tell people if you see me running, look behind me because somebody is chasing me!!  Uggggh!  So of course, when I saw this stamp, I HAD to have it!  Tee-hee!  I made this card for Lil' Chick since she's havin' a little bit of morning sickness.  Poor thing…  At least it made her laugh.  Yay!  Ok, so I started off by stamping this onto some Strathmore watercolor paper and colored it with my distress markers and a water brush.  Then using my oval Nestabilities, I cut the image out and leaving the die in place, sponged some chalk ink around the edges.  I have a video on that technique HERE.  The rest of the card was a cinch as all I did was mat the DP to some rose CS using my handy dandy Perfect Layers tool and then stitched around the edges.  To finish, I added some glitter to her slippers using my Wink of Stella pen and tied on some twine before adhering the panel to the SU Kraft card base.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a FABULOUS Friday and a WONDERFUL weekend!  {{{hen hugs}}}

  1. How funny! You did an awesome job on this card! I love it! I hate exercising too! To bad when we watch aerobics, the pounds do not fall off!

  2. That is how I would love to workout! The BG looks like a great way to use a few scraps. Really fun card.

  3. This is adorable and I certainly can relate. :) Glad it brought a smile to Lil' Chick and hope her morning sickness doesn't last long.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. Omg!!!! This is the best thing ever. I love it and the paper and your colouring. Love it, love it!!!
