So many Candles............

I have quite a few close friends who are hitting milestone birthdays in the next few months, so I decided to build up a little stock of cards, and pulled out some of my Art Impressions stamps and settled down to a bit of colouring.
They are quite hard to find here in the UK, but I found a good selection HERE on Amazon





Since I am a bit of a 'matchy matchy' dresser, and feel a bit uncomfortable wearing colours that don't 'go', I unleash my inner rebel with these stamps, and really enjoy giving the ladies wild coloured clothes and hair - all the cards have a liberal dose of sparkle on the clothes as well (Wink of Stella pen), and if I knew how to draw leopard skin patterns, these ladies would definitely be up for that! How about you? Do you match, or don't you care as long as you feel good?

  4. Oh how fun ... I love these stamps, they always make me smile. And I totally agree, your coloring is fabulous. Yes, I admit it, I am a matchy-matchy dresser too ... right down to the shoes, purse, jewelry (and even the undies - not that anyone is going to see them - *wink*). However, the vast majority of my friends are just not that concerned about their clothing color choices. I've often wondered where they do their shopping. But in truth, I know they are more trendy than I am. Oh well, I guess I am from the old school. I saw a line in a movie once when a young man wanted to impress a lady, so he had dressed up for their date. Then walking down the street, he saw his reflection in a shop window and was second guessing his choice. An elderly lady was watching him and he turned to her and explained his situation, then asked if he was over dressed. She smiled and said that she thought that being slightly over dressed was always the best way to go. That elderly lady and I think alike. I even dress up to go to the grocery store. My sister thinks I am nuts ... and perhaps I am. Oh well, that's ME! (psst, sorry for the long tale.)

  6. I love these stamps and have a couple of them. I've always been a matchy-matchy person, but as I enter my "golden" years, I find I don't really care that much anymore. Now I will wear colors together that I never would have in my younger years.
