A Card For Tracie


Ok, I have not done anything on my To-Do list. I really need to get busy, but I wanted to try a card with this new stamp.

The reason I ordered the trendy ladies from Eclectic Paperie was to make some cards for my sister. You see she is the definition of Trendy. She works in a VERY trendy salon in Virginia. You know the kind that it is about $400 to get your hair done. I do have to say --being totally objective -- she is one of the best there. She just has this way of making her customer look their absolute best.

The funny thing is I think sometimes she is embarrassed when people see me. I have long hair that has no style to it, but it is easy to take care of -- you know head band or pony tail. To make matters even worse I use that temporary hair color from the grocery store to cover up the little bit of gray that I have.

Anyway this is the card. I used brilliant blue for her dress because her salon is called Blue. I do not know whether you can see, but I used the stickles on the jewelry to add bling. It looks really pretty IRL.

Gorgeous card. You should sell your cards in her salon! I am originally from Silver Spring, MD, but currently live in Leesburg, VA. Are you from MD originally? I'm a pony tail girl too (aka "mommy hair"). When I turned 37 I had to start getting hilights to cover the gray, and so far so good. (I'm 40 now).

Great card, wonderful idea June had sell your cards in her shop, heck if they can pay that much for a haircut a $10 car would be a bargain.
