Ribbons and Lace

I actually had this card and several other SC images finished last Wednesday. I've just put off blogging them. I must really love waiting to the last minute to get entered in Challenges.

This week the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog challenge was to use ribbon and lace. So being a person that loves ribbon and lace on little girls' clothes, this wasn't a difficult challenge at all.

This image is called Cheer Up, and she's one of Sassy Cheryl's latest images. Don't you love that pouting face. She's colored with Copics. The papers are from my scrap box. There is a story behind the Word Art. When my youngest DD was in those "wonderful" teenage years, and we'd have those discussions about behavior and decisions(you know the ones I'm talking about), she'd roll her eyes and say "FINE!"  No matter how I type it, I can't convey her feelings when she said that normally one syllable word. Today instead of "fine" it's Whatever or in the Southern world "WHAT evah!" My 4 1/2 year old grandson(child of above said DD) is paying her back. He just says "I don't care!"  Can you see me smiling over that?

I had a whole page of Sassy Cheryl images colored and thought I'd share another one that I did. Again the papers are from my scrap box and the sentiment is from Create with TLC. Be sure you check out Sassy Cheryls Digi Shop.

Finally here's the Word Art. Feel free to grab it.


  1. You know I'm lovin that pouty little girl and the sentiment is PERFECT. I grabbed it and want to say thank you. I know you will be seeing this on a card in the future. I am not done with her yet!

    Problem I have with those "conversations" is that they are now in the future because of the two little minx I have in this house again! LOL
