I thought we could all do with a bit of humour today after a busy few weeks...so what better way to do it than those adorable Emerson gals...how could you not love them! I was inspired by the 2RedBananas Challenge: http://2redbananas.blogspot.com/
which was a sketch this week - phew!! Also the Stamp Something Challenges which is all about BLING: http://stampchallenges.blogspot.com/
along with the If the Shoe Fits: http://iftheshoefitsscrapit.blogspot.com/
which is also about BLING!! I must say at this point that I was also motivated by the fact that it dawned on me this morning as I was getting organised for the day, that I was meant to have made 10 cards for one of the boutiques that sells my card - OOPS - my bad!!
This particular one always makes me laugh - if only it was just the chocolate chips! LOL! I guess a lot of us can relate to it in one way or another! I really like this particular sketch, it worked well for using up those bits of DP that we collect (and have them ALL over the place) so I feel that I can justify the time spent by deluding myself that I have cleaned my desk - but it would seem that no-one else in may house hold is fooled! LOL!
I used the Labels 1 Nestibilitie to cut out the image, coloured them with chalks and added highlights with a Glitter pen....and you know me - I sponged every edge in sight. The layers are all backed with black CS. I have popped the image up on dimensionals and added a layered flower to the side. The top flower is actually foam - I wasn't sure about these at first, but I love the way they 'pop' up when a brad is used....the final touch is the Kaiser strip of gems - quick and easy!!

Linda, these gals are always a hoot. Ai yi yi- how can you take a funny image and then get the most elegant card from it? Talent Sistah! You got it! TSMFS, LYMI

This is fun, 2rb and bacon, lettuce and tomato, hold the mayo...sounded like a food order. Sorry Linda, I'm on a happy and quirky roll this morning, so please bare with me. I love those gals, you did sooo good here. No surprise with your magic fingers. TFS Hugsxo
