Dont call 1-800 missing quite yet...

Hi Everyone,

Wow it has been a long time since I have posted. I think I got a little overwhelmed this year working two jobs, taking care of my dogs medical issues (he is ok but does have chronic health issues) and also having some medical issues in our family I just didn't feel like creating much.

But I am back and it is a new year so I am setting mini goals for myself..... (and no I am not posting on here cause I don't know if I will be able to keep them) but the first goal is now complete which was to create a card pretty simple.

I had my Best friends birthday in November and although we celebrated her birthday I didn't give her a card or presents til after christmas... Well I did take her to the fab four (you would think it was the real beatles the way she was acting haha).

Michelle loves vintage and is into steampunk right now so I stumbled across a website called simply betty stamps (totally her style! yay!) and I really wanted to make her a card with one of their images but which one to choose? well Simply Betty has a challenge going on right now in their facebook group which was just the inspiration I was looking for! I signed up to use this steampunk Betty image and got creating. Gotta say not my usual style but did have fun breaking out of my mold.

I really wanted to play up the steampunk with this and decided to go vintage. Here are the products I used
-Copics (skin: e0000, e000, e00, e02, e11; Hair: e21, 23,25 and 79; clothing silver the C00- C9 depending on darker or lighter tones, the blues E24, E26, E06; lips r29 )
-Papers: Reflections brown cardstock, Bazil antique age papers, american crafts neutral paper pad, DCWV street lace)
- Doily from dollar store sprayed with Tattered Angels Juniper mist
- Karen fosters designs big time brass atique brad with rub on clock (sorry lost packaging don't know where from)
- Tim Holtz metal gears, Netting Vintage inspired by websterpages, cosmo cricket tini text, typewriter alpha I want to say also from cosmo cricket but not 100 % sure, lace (given to me so unknown)

Inspired By: Corinne (shout out to her for setting up this challenge), Simply Betty stamps, Simply Betty stamps fab facebook group girls! Thanks everyone!

Random Fact: my Best friend and I have been friends since Grade 7 ( We are going on almost 13 years now wow! ) I call her Mesh for her nickname and I still do not recall why I started calling her this. I think it is because her name Being Michelle you instantly want to call her shelly or Mich but she doesn't like people calling her that so I combined both... )
