Cupcake Anya

I finally made a card! After I don't know how long. I fell off the crafting wagon for a bit. This blog is supposed to help keep me motivated to actually use all the stuff I buy. Maybe it's helping me a little where I am at least thinking about it more often. Unfortunately, I don't always feel like I have the time or energy. But Eva is keeping me inspired, my crafting idol!

So anyhow, this week, I did the Saturday Sketch from Club Anya, again. I picked Cupcake Anya for my free digi from a previous week, so I figure I better try and use her before I forget I even have it on my computer.
The whole card seems a bit bright, but I wanted to match the colors on the glittery Doodlebug stickers (border trim, flowers, and label). And then I got a little out of control picking so many different colors and ended up not even using the stickers that contained any orange! First time I used my PTI New Leaf cardstock, I'm kind of actually liking that bright green. It's embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I stamped on the cardstock sticker with PTI Mega Mixed Messages. I used the Memento black ink, which afterward I realized might have been a bad choice because it didn't dry very quickly and smudged a little because the cardstock sticker had a bit of a shiny slick surface. I colored again with Prismacolor pencils. Then I realized I kind of forgot how to color hair! I messed up where I wanted the hair to be light so I just colored the whole thing in.

This is just a sidenote photo of the tooth fairy box from Eva, with my son's 2 bottom teeth in there! He actually went to the dentist to get them out because his permanent teeth were coming in behind his baby teeth. Which was freaking me out, but the dentist actually didn't get too excited. So we tried for almost 3 weeks, except my son seemed to have a low threshold for pain. It didn't seem like we could wiggle it very hard and it didn't seem to be getting a whole lot looser. Although now I realize the teeth were kind of stuck down in there since part of the root wasn't totally dissolved at the front.
Anyhow, sorry if you didn't want to see any gross pictures of teeth. Have a good night!

$5 (for both teeth - yes, I'm cheap). But he thought the going rate for a tooth was $1, although he said someone said they got $20(!). So he was super happy that he got more than $1 a tooth!
