LOVE potion #9

Love potion number ni-hi-hi-hi-hine.... LOL!! So how was your weekend??? I hope it was a good one. My hubby took me to Home Depot and Lowes yesterday shopping for garage doors. Can you say, "JUST SHOOT ME!!" Seriously!! Now I know there are quite a few women out there that probably just LOVE shopping at home improvement stores (I even have a few in my own family) but I'm NOT one of them. Uh, no paper, glue, ribbon, what's to like??? But my hubby knows how to put a smile back on my face, because on the way home he pulled into DQ!! Oh yeah!! Now you're talking!! I was like a dog panting at the window, with my nose pressed against the glass!! Kinda like that dog on the commercial but instead of BACOOONNN, I was like, "BLIZZZZZZAARRRRD"!!! *snort*

Man, I'm so LOVIN' these Moonlight Whispers stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Each time she comes out with another one, I'm on it!! This is Josephine and she's spreadin' her LOVE potion all around. Kinda looks like me in the morning with my perfume. he-he!! I LOVEEEE perfume!! I thought Josephine would make a great Valentine's Day card so I colored her up to match this Basic Grey DP that I bought last year. I really like the soft pinks and browns in this collection. I stamped her onto some SU Very Vanilla, colored her with my Copics and sponged some chalk ink around the edges. I did add some Glamour Dust to her potion fumes and some Stickles to her gypsy earing to give her some sparkle. I stitched around all the edges and made a cute double loop "bubbly" bow from this pretty pink saddle stitched ribbon, finishing with a brown button in the center. Check out 'dem bare feet!! She's a girl from the South fer sure!! Have a good Monday ya'll!!

Oh, I wanted to add that I had a comment on Friday's card from Jenny that read:

"Too Cute! Can you share how to make your cute bubbly bow? :) Thanks!"

LOL!!! I just LOVED that name for my bows!! So thank you Jenny, my bows now have a NAME!! In answer to your question, I've never done a video before but I've asked for a video camera for my birthday so maybe if I get one, I can make that my first tutorial. Thanks so much for the comment and suggestion!! I just LOVE all my comments each day, they REALLY do make my day!! {{{hugs}}}
