Jellypark Friends DT 5-3-2013 New Release

It's Jellypark day again, which brings us to Friday. I always loved Fridays when I was gainfully employed. Now I don't really care what day it is. Retirement does that to you. Mind you, I am not complaining!

So my sleep on Wednesday night was not the best. I could not get comfortable in bed, due to my shoulder. After two hours of trying to get to sleep I got up and went to read for a bit. Then I got really sleepy around two so I laid down on the couch. Which turned out to be a really good thing. The back of the couch supported my shoulder in a way that didn't hurt it. So I slept great--well, that is until Gary woke me up when he came out around 5:30. Then he left for his gym work-out, (yes, he really does do that. Ugh!), and I drifted back to sleep, only to be reawakened when he came back at 7:00. So then I got up and started my day.

I spent all day catching up on comments. Well, not all day, because I ran out of gas about noon. So I laid back down on the couch and took a very lonnnnnng nap. But then I felt really refreshed and got back to the commenting. I actually got caught up again. But that won't last long, because you guys just won't quit creating like mad fiends. You keep my fingers nimble anyway with all the typing. Too bad it doesn't do anything for my waist or thighs.

This week I am on the JP DT that uses the new release images. There are two of them, both really, really cute girls. And the challenge this time is "Girly Girl", so that gives you a chance to create pretty much anything with a girl image! Go to it and have fun! And be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by both DT's this week!

My image is "String of Hearts", which I printed on MICBC, and then colored her with Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: Y21, YR23, E33, E35
Hearts: R22, R24
Dress: YG0000, YG61, YG63
Socks: E81, E84, E87
Shoes & shadow: C0, C2, C4, C6, C7

My DP is from the MME Lost & Found Rosy collection, which I distressed by hand since I did it at night when Gary was sleeping. (My Zutter Distrezz-It-All is fantastic, but really noisy.) I paired the DP with Stampin' Up CS. 

Of course I added die cuts! They were made from these dies: Cuttlebug Hearts & Stamps; Doohickey So Wrapped Lovely Folded Heart and Romantic Lace; Memory Box Typewriter Lower and Twirled Heart Border. I also added some cheesecloth, baker's twine, and the following trinkets: a Maya Road Love Hanger, a key, a button and a bell. And that's it for me this fine Friday.

Hope to see you at Jellypark Friends! And have a great weekend!
