Be Whoever You Wanna Be


The last time I entered a Market Street Stamps challenge I said I really had to get some more stamps from them besides background stamps as Hippie Chic was the only non-background set I had.  Despite much temptation I haven't gotten around to ordering any others yet so it's more Hippie Chic for me for January's Paint the Town Challenge.  I was pretty liberal with the pink on this card but there's a touch of sherbet on the lower patch on the dress and an aqua patch as well as the aqua sentiment.  


We took the dogs for a swim this morning but Jem was not diggin' it.  Atti would swim if there were icebergs out there - as long as there's something to fetch he'll go overboard. Jem, however, is not appreciative of the chilly water and figures if we aren't going in then he sure as heck isn't either!  Since he didn't get much of a swim he's bouncing off the walls now so it's off for a walk.  Have a lovely evening!

Is it warmer yet? It's warmer here -- but still winter, of course. :P Jem and Atticus really would be pushing ice out of their way here! :P
Okay, on to the card, which is awesome! I think this set is perfect for these colours. And good for you holding strong on not buying more... yet. ;)

Such a cute take on the inspiration! What a fabulous dress form! (I'm 'trying' not to buy at the moment.... not going so well though)

This set just seems like you, even though I've never met you in real life! Great card.

IT may use the same set BUT it still rocks :) I'm going to have to get around to entering one of the challenges there one of these days.
I can't picture Abby swimming in cold water - she barely likes warm water!- but then again, she loves snow. Weird little dog ;)

I love the texture to this card Jen. I think Jem is showing his superior intelligence by not fancying a swim in the chilly water!

This cute card has such a crisp, clean style, Jen! Love how you used the negative space so effectively. Happy swimming!

Darling card, Jen! I love the selectively colored patches. Hope your dogs (and you) had a great walk!

This is one "Hip" card and you used the colors nicely! I don't have any of these stamps yet, so guess who is enabling now????
