Gum-dar!

Whimsey Doodles Pencil Pixie with Inkadinkadoo stamps (Mindscapes and Birthday Cupcake)
Paper is from The Basics stack by the Paper Studio. It's actually grey... 

Happy Tuesday!! You know when you fall asleep and dream about work ... I blame Pencil Pixie for it.

Oh, that's ok, Miss Pixie. I forgive you. You're entirely too cute and sad about school to stay mad it.

This card is going to my BFF, a music teacher in a tiny little school district in central Texas. Oh how I love her. I remember when she first started teaching - she hated it. Now it's ok because she's learned how to stop other people's children from beating each other with recorders and has thoroughly convinced the both of us that breeding is a horrible thing to engage in. Thank you, BFF. Now, I sit happily drinking my Texas Martini and watching Futurama while crafting ... all in my living room. Oh, I have a special room for crafting, but there's no need to go that far away from the fridge. =)

Sadly, not much of my sparkly pen has shown up. I went around the oval for Miss Pixie, the oval for the sentiment (which I hand wrote - my 2nd grade teacher would be proud!) and added to the flower, stars, and pixie wings. Also, the grey has magically appeared an unusual greenish color. I use my cell phone to take pictures... perhaps I should invest in an actual camera? As usual the printer is less-than-willing so all the black lines were hand traced over faint grey printer ink. Maybe I should get a printer, too... Oh, my job is *sooo* close to paying for my crafting addiction!

In any case, I would like to submit Madame Pixie to:

Love to Create - Sparkle!!
The Pink Elephant - TPE161 Back to School!!
Feeling Sketchy - Week 20!!

 Enjoy your Tuesday and keep it crafty!!

  1. Sounds like you need to start saving - new camera and new printer! This is a pretty card, I love your sweet image and hand written sentiment - I would never dare to hand write any of my sentiments, it would look terrible.
