Sneak Peek - Mowlene


"When it is 105 degrees in the shade, I don't care what the neighbors say."

Isn't Mowlene a hoot???? ROFL! She is one of the new Humorous Seniors that I Brake for Stamps will have in the store very soon. This is a little sneaky peeky for you. You need to go to the I Brake for Stamps store and check out the rest of the Seniors. You're gonna love 'em!

I stamped Mowlene and colored her with Copic markers before cutting her out. I wanted to have some "grass" for her to mow, so I pulled out my Martha Stewart fringe scissors and just started cutting. I crimped some yellow paper and adhered it to the inside of this die cut window card so they look like mini blinds. The "stucco" look of the house comes from stamping Holly's Tattered Background on the card base - it is such a versatile background! I love it!!

Mowlene -- tee hee! Hey, she looks pretty good for her age. Love all the clever ideas here -- the grass, the stucco, the blinds in the window. Very cute, Holly!
