I was really excited about this week's Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge, Celebrate Art, because Megan at Dilly Beans has just released some fabby quotes (this from the #365 Artist's Quotes)and also recently released a number of new digis Frida Kahlo digis (this one is #338 Say of the Dead Frida) whom I love dearly. I messed with the image a bit in order to have it fit properly on my ATC and colored it with Copics according to the Craft Us Crazy Color Inspiration Challenge below.
It's been one of those weeks. Tuesday I had a hair appt. "Huh?" you say. Didn't you have one LAST Tues? Uhh, well...I thought I did, but my wallet is as messy and disorganized as my craft room and the appt. card I pulled out last week was for (would you believe this?) LAST YEAR! I sat there for 15 minutes, the receptionist called and left a message for my stylist and I continued to sit there thinking that maybe she thought it was for 9:45 since last month it was. Finally I started digging through my wallet and found the right card. February 28th. Eiyiyi!
This week however I thought all was well until I sat in the chair after shampooing my color out and my roots were NEON red! Seriously! Apparantly she tried a new red color booster in my usual touch up color and it reacted with my light roots. REALLY REACTED! At first we thought it would calm down with a little blow drying but NOOOOO!!!!! So she put additional dark color on, I waited AGAIN for processing, but she didn't want to shampoo again so she just used a vinegar rinse. Well, the color was fine, but my scalp, OMG! Let's just say my part looked like I should have a hatchet sticking out of my head. So what's the point of all this rambling? Well, I'd started last week's Wicked Wednesday ATC before I left and intended to finish and post it when I returned home. However, I was so traumatized by my hair experience that I was forced to do some serious retail therapy (first purchase, a hat!) and by the time I got home the collection was closed. EEEEKKK!!!!! Well, I finished it anyway and here it is.
The little cat was a freebie from Dover publications. The grass is an MS punch. A bit of embossing with the Cuttlebug and a bit of bling. The sentiment is a Studio G dollar stamp. It just so happens that the Inky Impressions Challenge is Wish Me Luck so I'm entering it there. WooHoo!
