One martini, two martini, three martini...BUNCO!?



Isn’t she just the cutest? When I saw Stella I knew I had to get my hands on her. And when my friend Laura at Family Memories asked me if I had any special requests for her Bella order, I asked for Stella.

I knew Stella with an olive on top would be perfect for my mom’s bunco club. She’d be more perfect if she was sitting on a frozen daiquiri (I remember mom and the girls getting daiquiri slush out of the freezer on bunco nights and at bunco family pool parties.) They’re a great group of friends that have been getting together once a month since I was young…so maybe 30ish years, to play bunco! (what’s bunco? click here.) I told my mom I’d make her tallies for the next time she hosts. Mom doesn’t have bunco at her house until the fall but I couldn’t wait that long to play around with my stamp.

The card…in my continued attempt to use all my scraps and save moolah for my future COPIC marker purchases, I’ve used all papers and embellies from my scrap stash. I also used my new dry embossing folder ( a gift, I didn’t buy :D ) to add a little more texture to the card. On Stella I paper pieced her dress. And then to finish off the card, I used some liquid glass over the top of the martini glass to give it a, well, glassy appearance. I don't think my attempt to show the glassy look with the close-up photo worked... Hope you like!

Well, I’m getting the evil eye from hubby, he’s waiting for me to finish so we can watch Nip/Tuck…I’m a loud typer so I need to sign off before we start the show.

Have a good one!
