Hey there! How's it goin'?
All is good here this morning. :)
By now I'm sure it's no secret that I enjoy altering and playing with my stamped images. So I was tickled pink when Elaine of Quixotic Paperie invited me to be a guest designer for this week's Quixotic challenge which is all about altering your TGF stamps. Umm, yea... I think I can do that. ;)
The problem comes in figuring out which stamps to combine into a new character, there are just so many possibilities! How to choose, how to choose? I decided to start with my papers and hopefully have those guide me. So once again I felt the pull of that WeR card kit I've been frankensteining and when I saw the dandelion puffs and matching sentiment the light bulb went off... fairy time, LOL! So I grabbed Easter Anya because I love her curly pigtails, wiped away her closed eyes with a baby wipe (links to my altering tutorials can be found in my sidebar) and replaced them with Lolli Anya's smiley eyes. Then I chopped off her head and added it to Flutter Anya's body. Isn't she just so giggly and cute?
Now I've got to share a little story that this cards brings to mind... I'll probably sound like a total goof but I'm putting it out there. :)
So back when I was in college and making the the three hour drive home one long weekend and the wind was blowing over the palouse sending huge tumbleweeds rolling across the freeway, my mind began to wander and I began to imagine little fairies hitching rides in the branches of those tumbleweeds. I could see them spinning head over heels shouting 'weeeeeeeeeee' just like it was an amusement park ride. It really made me hope that none of them hit the car, LOL!
And I totally made the mistake of telling my family about this little flight of fancy and now I never hear the end of it whenever we spot a tumbleweed blowing by, oy!
Ok, dorky tangent over. ;)
