And it’s a Christine Grove type-a day.. not TYPE A.. typa.. get it? type OF.. LOL.. Yes I am goofy today.. I lost ONE WHOLE POUND this week LOL.. 2 inches off my waist.. and feeling very SVELTE.. LOL.. NOT. This morning my Tyler’s team won their first game in a tournament.. it’s a GOOD day 🙂 and yes, My HOOD went on a couple of times (see previous post).
Anyway.. back to our Christine. When I first “met” her I was so drawn to her illustrations.. to her sense of humor.. her artwork makes me smile and laugh out loud. SERIOUSLY.. These senioritas are DA BOMB. Now when I first released them, I received a few not so nice messages as to how I am depicting older women etc. (they have sold out many many times so thank goodness I don’t rely on the nay sayers LOL) If people know me, they KNOW that the artwork I sell is a part of my heart and NEVAH EVAH would I want to insult anyone in any way. When I released the senioritas, all I felt was STRENGTH, and WARMTH.. and SILLYNESS.. Just exactly what I want to be when I am their age. Are they stunning and gorgeous? maybe not so much.. but they are REAL. AND they cater to any age.. to me they represent women. Period. So really sistahs? I appreciate all comments I receive.. don’t stop.. but before you do, I hope you read this little snippet and understand where I am coming from.. n’k?
So I will start now with SENIORITA GLADYS. Seriously. I LOVE HER. I love her outfit, her face and what she REPRESENTS… oh and her sentiment? TO DIE FOR.. I swear.. the images are easy… LOL.. it’s pairing them up with the perfect words.
Meet GLADYS in all her GLORY.. ohh and think of a patterned paper pieced cape… (wheels are turning)
Here’s a sample card by DANABELLA
and the inside
And here’s ELAINEabella’s card
2 different looks.. BOTH SO MUCH FUN!! LOL.. Gladys makes me giggle.
And now meet SENIOR-ita BEVERLY.. she is the optimist in the seniorita clan.. always happy and always finding a reason to smile. EVEN. IN. THE. RAIN. I wanna hang out with Bev. .. but maybe later cuz it looks like she is about to jump in that puddle. LOL.
imagine paper piecing that umbrella? YUMMALISH.
The last one on our list is of a baby. Now just like a “juicy” flower… everyone needs a “juicy” baby in their collection. I can tell you that I was running dry with names.. I just looked at this baby and named it BABY. LOL. But how can a Bella stamp be named BABY.. it can’t..LOL.. so I was in the car with Jayden (for a change.. cuz all I DO IS DRIVE!!!).. and she said something (when she was in a good mood LOL) and I said to her what did you say SNOOKUMS? … snookums? hmmmmm??? OK that was it. Perfect bella name for a perfect bella stamp.
MEET SNOOKUMS.. snookums can be a he baby or she baby depending on the colours of the outfit. AND THE TWIRL AT THE TOP OF THE HAT? I mean.. COME ON.. see? it’s the smallest things that make me soooo happy. And the quote? Do we need to discuss my obssession with POOH? I actually sent this quote to Christine and said please draw what this quote means to you.. and sure enough .. she made us SNOOKUMS.. double chin and all 🙂
Hope you enjoy todays’ sneak peeks as much as I doo
and if you want a chance to win all 3, please leave a comment.. I LOVE THEM!
