Missing the Fun

Hallooooooooo my stamping friends! And welcome to another Bellaholics Anonymous Sketch Challenge! I've been in a Valentine-y mood lately, so I went with pink and white for this one. Here's the sketch:


And here's my interpretation of it:


I'm loving the sentiment stamped on vellum. *Smacks forehead* Why didn't I think of that sooner? Oh yeah, because I hate working with vellum. I stamped this in Staz On though, and I *think* it dried fairly quickly. It KILLED me to not do the smudge test to find out for sure, but I learned my lesson on that a bazillion other times. I swear, no matter how dry you think that ink is, it's still wet. That's one of Murphy's Laws of Stamping. ;o)

I love that Katherine Hepburn quote, too (stamp from Stamping Bella, as is the dotted ribbon)! Kate is a woman after my own heart, I tell ya. Loved her. When I bought this sentiment (solely because it was a quote of hers, mind you), I intended to use it with something else... Something a little more edgy. But then I thought, hey, why not pair it up with Miss Goody-two-shoes here? :o) hehehehe. This girl is clearly obeying ALL the rules, and therefore will never have ANY fun. You see where I'm going with this? So what do you think? Do they work together? Or not so much?

Here is a close up:

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for an i {heart} papers card. Then I'm going to take Sunday off, and will be posting three days of sneak peeks Monday through Wednesday for Pink Cat Studio. The new stamps Melissa designed are sooooo cute. Just wait until you see 'em! Woot!

Enjoy the day!
