Sad Sally- Spring?


Check out the layering I did - love to add the depth to the card - my Pop Dots have been getting a workout lately...in fact I need some more larger round ones - anyone want to send me some?

I would like to introduce you to Sad Sally who is from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I found her via someone elses card a LONG LONG time ago and when I went to order they were working on the site, I started a list and figured well I will wait till it is done so I don't miss out on anything, set my list aside and went on with things. Unfortunately it got buried under other treasures and lost in the back of my mind. While cleaning I found it again and went back to finish my list and get an order placed. I was sad to see that Lindy has since passed away but am glad her daughter, Tracey; is still keeping her mom's dream alive.

Tracey offers the most wonderful customer service, when I placed my order she was out of town but promptly emailed to say when she would mail my package. She mailed just as she said and my stamps arrived lickety split! I was thrilled cause there were so many cuties to play with. Since it was Sad Sally who turned me on to them I grabbed her first...

Using Sketches Recipe #43 from Sketches by {tamara}, Lindy's stamps from Sad Sally Songbirds and Creep Crawlies sets, Copic markers in B00, B02, B05, Y28, Y17 and Y38 for coloring Sally. Some DCWV paper and Reflection Blue Ink, some Prima's and a couple Pop Dots along with the TSSC63 sketch and you end up with a delightful card! And yeah is it safe to say it's Spring yet?

She's sad but beautiful. Great card. P.S. Need pop dots? I keep the rubber from the SU stamps and use it as pop dots. Keep the backing on til ready to use, peel the rubber off (it comes off easy) add a strip of sticky glue or run your tape runner over it and VIOLA! pop dot. You can cut them to any size too!

Hugs,

This one cracks me up. I think because we skipped spring here in Killeen and went straight to summer!
