InStyle Stamps Sneak Peek - Darla

Hi Friends! Hey today is a sneak peek of InStyles Stamps "Darla". . .whoohoo!! Look at Darla work! Gosh, I wish she could clean my house! LOL! Honestly, my house needs help . .well, actually I need help. I have so much to catch up on. . .it's not funny! Darla will be available for purchase on April 1st!!

Yesterday was my daughter's birthday and we were out for over 12 hours. . .primarily eating and shopping! Yup, can you imagine? My daughter bought a buttload of clothes. We told her she could buy whatever she wanted . ..well, nothing crazy but crazy enough to make her happy and she went straight for the clothes. I won't tell you how much money we spent because you'll think we're crazy. Well maybe not because I know we ladies can shop when it comes to clothes so you probably wouldn't be surprised.

Boy. . .did she shop or what! LOL! That's okay, we had fun and my daughter was extremely happy. We ate lunch at our favorite Hawaiian restaurant in Torrance, CA called "King's Hawaiian Bakery". It felt like we were back in Hawaii. It was YUMMY!

I'll post pictures tomorrow. . .

Anyway, just a little info about my card. I colored Darla with my Copic Markers and added a bit of SU Crystal Effects. . .you know the routine. LOL!

Nothing much else to say about this card. I need to go to bed so I'm going to cut it short. I'll chit-chat more tomorrow when I have more time to write!!

Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

Stamps: InStyle Stamps Darla, SU Inspired by Nature

Hey Maria, can I borrow Darla to come clean my house when she's done with yours?! Love the colors! Darla looks like a cleaning machine. And she even seems to be ENJOYING it?!? Egads.

Happy Birthday to your Daughter! How old is she now? You raised her right... going for the clothes. LOL. I bet she is in heaven! Sounds like a great day. Can't wait to see pics! I will be posting my latest assignment pics on my photo blog today. They are "ok". I just need to spend more time practicing. Hopefully after this LAST class towards my degree!!!! Take care!

Your card is adorable Maria! And if you don't mind, would you send Darla to help me with my housework? *lol*
Your coloring rocks and I love your card layout.
I already know how "us girls" can get when it comes to shopping. I tend to go a bit overboard at times myself.
Glad to hear that you had a great time celebrating your daughter's birthday.

Sweet creation, Maria. I wish I was smilin' when I clean house....NOT Gonna HAPPEN!!!

Glad you n' your DD had a wonderful time yesterday. I wish I was your daughter, but you'll have to take me stamp shopping instead, because I don't like shopping for clothes. Electronics n' Stamps... I can rack up a bill on those things. =0) Anyways, loved reading about your day, she deserves all that she got, she's such a great daughter!!!
