Fruit of the vine

I've got a giveaway going here if you're interested in new Spellbinders dies! I'll be picking the winner this afternoon and will announce the winner tomorrow morning.

Hi everyone! I hope your week is going well!  Happy Leap Day!  Yesterday Outlawz had a color challenge to use black and white and throw in one other color. I always love red with black and white so that's what I went with.



I used the wonderful new Cocktail Waitress image drawn by Fawn Palmer and colored her with Copic markers. She comes with five different sentiments that are all cute - you need to go see!  The background was created with a Stampin Up! wheel, and you can see where the edge touched the card stock - oh well!
This was such fun to color, and I love the doodled frame around her!

Do you remember gum wrapper chains? Well the kids at work love to get a piece of gum when they come over and I started saving the wrappers and showed them how to make a chain. They were more interested in giving me the wrappers and having ME make the chain, but the other day Tara asked me what I was going to do with it. I wrapped it around her wrist and said "It could be a bracelet", and then I held it up to her neck and said "or a necklace", and then I held it up to her waist and said "or a belt" and then I held it up to the headband she was wearing and said "or I could make you a headband with it." She lit up at that and said "That's what I want you to do! Make me a headband!" So ever since then when she hands me a gum wrapper she asks me if it's long enough for a headband. This weekend I finished her hand band


I added some sparkling red glitter because I know she loves sparkle. Yesterday I gave her the headband and she put it on and I asked her to strike a pose for me to model it


would you say she likes it?

How totally adorable. I had a gun chain so long it had it's own dresser drawer! (snort) Thanks for the childhood memory.

As for the card, of course it is a serving of fruit. Love it!
