Buffets are Evil~complete

She's surrounded by gas bubbles? What was I thinking? The background just happened and I went with it :)





Happy Friday everyone! I'm heading to Michaels tomorrow to buy some good colored pencils and maybe, just maybe a calligraphy set. I also need to find an outfit for my Godson's confirmation on Sunday. I'm plan to try on clothes before going anywhere near an 'all you can eat' set up of any kind! LOL

Darla, this made me laugh out loud! It is a beautiful painting though! I think your subconscience put the bubble background in for you!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Darla, thanks for replying to my dilemma on my blog, Shipping from the uk for international parcels comes with £39 insurance unfortunately that won't cover the whole cost for this parcel as there were 2 original paintings in there! To add tracking from the uk costs a fortune, but I think from now on I will offer it as an option to customers and then the decision is out of my hands.

I'm sorry your cards haven't turned up yet either, I hope that won't be another missing package :(

Love the colors you chose for the background.

You really are funny, gas bubbles, after all the pie!!! :)

I ate so much junk the other day I had to run for the pepto - heartburn not gas!! lol

Oh how I feel like this cute little girl on more occasions than I care to admit!
Ah yes...computers...love them or hate them...they're rather important when working online! Yikes!!
Even my 'loaner' isn't as co-operative as I need it to be! Hopefully your computer woes can be solved with some careful cleaning...I think mine has passed that stage!
Love your gal!!

I think it looks fantastic and to me it looks like I did at 9 months pregnant only with brown hair.

I think it would be wonderful at a baby shower.

I received the most fantastic cards in the mail yesterday and I cannot tell you enough how over the moon I am for them. OMG they are fantastic.

Seriously Darla the first thought after seeing how amazing they are, I love how the corners are rounded too, was I am saving and buying more so please keep making them. I have a few others and I have to say that yours are truly art.

Love Renee xoxo

Miss Meliss said...

They may be gas bubbles, but they're pretty gas bubbles. I always tell my cats that they have cute gas :). Wow what gorgeous eyes!

OK..think of them as balloons..but heehee they do look like I feel sometimes at buffets!

Martha Lever said...

Hi Darla,
I love your girls. They are wonderful!!!

Let me know if I can help you in any way with a calligraphy set. You might possible want to get a Parallel Pen. Those are the best and I use them in my class. But you would have to order them from Jet Pens. Love them!
