I can not even tell you how much this stamp means to me. I love all of my Donkeys stamps, but I think this one will touch my heart forever. Helene, from Alota Rubber Stamps, did it again - she has brought out an adorable collection of stamps - many of them are named for her DT, how sweet is she to that. But I am sorry the stamp named for me, is the most special. This is "Michelle and Bonnie" - how touching is that? Especially now, Bonnie is still "ok", but we are now starting to see some changes, and see that her Cancer is starting to effect her body more.
No sad right now, cuz this stamp makes me happy - Would make me happier if I really looked that cute! LOL! I just wish my legs looked that skinny... and hmm that is what ankles are suppose to look like - and sorry - but you won't ever see me in heels like that... I am a flats girl - I don't do well on little post under me.
Well when the new stamps arrived I just had to color it up first. Sorry to all of the other Lady DT's- their images are wonderful too. Well sitting new on my desk was the new paper pack from Memories - Sabrina - ooooohhhh this collection is just so pretttttttyyyy! I love brown and pink, but this black and pink is really gorgeous! And they have so many wonderful embellishments that match as well.
I started out with a black card stock as my base, I picked four patterns from the collection, and then colored my image (or Me and Bonnie) with my Copic Markers and high lighted with white gel pen. I doodled the edges of the image with little hearts and wavy lines. I cut down my four patterns for the card, punched the bottom of the pink dot with Martha's little Valentine border punch, then sewed the edges of each piece. I changed from Black thread to light pink on the one black piece. The ribbon is one from the collection, as is the flowers that I have stacked and topped with a jewelry spacer and one of the mini heart brads also called Sabrina. The sentiment is also from Alota Rubber Stamps is "Forever Friends" and is part of a great collection of universal words. Then to finish everything off I just had to gel pen stitch the edge of the black card.
I finished off the inside of the card as well.... but forgot to take the photo and now my camera is dead and is charging - but I did do the inside, really.
Man this week is flying by! Can you believe it is already Thursday? Wow! Today is more cleaning and Puppy patrol, Libbie and Gato, the Cat, really are bonding, in reality tearing it up and chasing each other through the house - it is really cute and funny to watch. Bonnie could care less about the puppy and just ignores her completely. Good thing is the puppy is keeping Gato entertained, Bonnie really isn't up to a lot of playing this week. Well better get my Wii done, so I can do some blog visiting and then get busy - Hope you all have a wonderful day -
