Wiggle Wiggle!!

Isn't this new Sophia from Paper Pretties ADORABLE!! Not only is she SUPAH cute, but this sentiment...You Put The Wiggle In My Hips.... ACKKK, TOO CUTE!! Aloha Sophia is our newest Stamp of the Month. Wanna know what the Stamp of the Month Club is? Basically, it is a hassle free subscription that will have one Sophia arriving in your mailbox a month!! Sounds good to me!!
My card today is one that I made for the Stamping In Your Jammies party challenge, to use a baby wipe technique. I used the striped wipe technique that was shown on SCS a while back. Basically, you take a baby wip and fold it to where you have a pretty thick edge(you want the edge that is not the ends of the sheet, kwim?) Then you take whatever colors of reinkers you want to use and put drops of them in the order you want on the crease. You then wipe them across glossy paper until they are blended. You have to let it dry for a bit, but I think it is so cool..especially for those of us that are brayer challenged. For my card, I wanted to create the illusion of a sunset over'd I do?? I used Marigold Morning, then Barely Banana, Bashful Blue and then Pacific Point reinkers. My Sophia was then colored to match with my Copic markers. The DSP is from the Pink Flamingo pack, and although I know it is supposed to match Summer Sun, I really think it matches Marigold Morning(a retired In Color) PERFECT. Boy I am really missing my In Colors from the past here lately. If I don't watch it, I will run out!! YIKES(seriously though, I stocked up like it was Y2K, no worries yet)!! My ribbons and brads are from SU, and the sentiment was punched out using SU Oval Punches. My nephew was desperately trying to help me with this card, so we are lucky it turned out this well. As I am typing up this post(on Sunday evening-WOOT for being ahead!!), he is sleeping in my bed at home. I decided to let him spend the night with me so he could spend time with his Grandpa, and I honestly don't know who was more thrilled. TOO CUTE!! A good Aunt would have taken pictures of this first sleepover at Grandpa's...but alas, I did not...maybe I will in the morning...To Be Continued!!
That is it for me now, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
