Thank you...

Hey there!

My friend Tracey and I recently made a trip across the mountains over to Seattle for a fun day of crafty shopping. Our first stop was at Ellen Hutson, where I added a couple more of these super cute Leading Ladies stamps to my collection. While we were there picking up our orders THE Ellen Hutson herself came and said hello and even took 10 minutes or so out of her busy day to chat Copics and stamping with us, it was so awesome! I know that I can speak for both Tracey and myself when I say that that simple act of kindness really made our day extra special. As soon as we pulled out of the parking lot we both knew we wanted to create a special thank you card for Ellen and I thought it would be fun to use her Leading Ladies to do it. I ended up altering the Crafty Lady by wiping away her long locks and giving her a bit of a hair cut as well as drawing in Tracey's signature specs to create the stamped version of her. My mini me was Photo Lady and I only needed to add a little shopping bag to her hand to have her fit the scene. Then I just used my Copics to sketch in the entrance to the Ellen Hutson store behind us, which was pretty easy considering all those windows and door are basically just a grid of different sized rectangles. I really hope that Ellen likes her card. :)

Catch ya later!
