They need to adore me, so Christian Dior me from my head to my toes...

Just a little Evita to get our day started! Ok, well it's started. How about to keep it going then? It's raining cats & dogs here, how about where you are? I know I shouldn't complain, we've had 80 degree weather for the last few days, but we get spoiled around here!

I had a little stamping time yesterday while Josh was picking up the boys, so I thought I'd do the Technique Challenge over on Splitcoast. My underthehoodybella has been waiting and waiting to see ink, so I inked her up and colored her with Copic markers.

I brought in some Close to Coca (stamped with my Polka Dot Backgrounder from CHF) and Clear Baubles for interest, and stamped the "Hey Sexy!" Sentiment (from MFT) in Chocolate Chip ink on White paper. I love how Julee always adds little strips from her Word Window punch, so I decided to give it a try.

I hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday! Fingers crossed that I'll get time to play the Color Challenge...that'd be the day! *grin*

Stamps: Under the Hoodabella (Stamping Bella), Essential Sentiments (My Favorite Things), Polka Dot Backgrounder (CHF)
