‘Cause some don’t have the patience, Some call me high-maintenance...

Who, me?? High maintenance? nah.... *wink*

I found another ChiChi card I haven't shown you yet. This was when I was on my Pumpkin, Olive and Saffron kick. Love it! This is also one of my go-to layouts when I'm stuck. Whatcha think?
This card features Eloise Greengrass, who is quite possibly my favorite of the ChiChi fairies. She is so fun to color! But please don't tell the other girls, I love them also. She was my first one, so she'll probably always have that special place. But I'd hate for the others to be jealous, you know? *wink* Eloise is stamped with Versafine Black and watercolored with SU Reinkers and a waterbrush.

Speaking of. I've had a few emails asking about watercolor. Are you interested in a tutorial? If so, let me know and I'll work on it. I never know who really cares (no, seriously!) but I'd be happy to do it if you'd like. So speak up, k? *grin*

Ok, back to the card. The sentiment is from the Verve set Fluttering By, which I totally love. But I have to say, I've never met a Verve Stamp I didn't like. Speaking of AGAIN! Julee is kicking off the AnniVERVEsary with 12 days of fun! Check out the forum HERE and Julee's blog HERE for more info. She just keeps giving away stamps!!

Hope you guys have a fabulous Friday!
