Relax

Do ever feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? Well yesterday I was trying to play catch up with unpacking, going to the grocery store, dropping off DVDs, laundry and making a trip with the kids to turn in library books, by night time I was ready for bed! Last night was the first good night sleep I've had in quite a few nights, I guess I was just so tired I passed out, LOL. I think people really don't realize how much moms do in order to get the whole family packed and ready for a vacation. Yes I'm looking for the gold star on my forehead!

Stella really looks like shes enjoying her self on this card, just kicking back sippin' her java, except there must be somethin' good in her coffee because her cheeks are so red, LOL. I had the whole image colored with my Copics and then reached for the wrong color for her cheeks, so she now looks like shes having a hot flash but that's OK. Its hard to see but I used my Spica glitter pen and added glitter to the steam coming from her cup and some on her crown and wand.
Supplies: Stella has her fix, Sit back relax & enjoy - Stamping Bella, Basic Grey designer paper, Ribbon, Baubles, Nestabilities, Copics, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Green Bazzill paper.
Hope your having a great day!

Stella is always adorable. A picture is worth a 1000 words. I just love Traverse City by the way! It's about 4 1/2 hours from me too. We could very well be neighbors in Michigan.

These Stellas just crack me up!! For some reason they remind me of that Mike Myers talk show sketch from SNL...where he's a woman from Brooklyn... But I digress ;)

Love this card!! Your coloring is fantastic, and I love the dp you chose to put with Miss Stella...the details are fab. Really need some Nesties...

Great job!!
