Wicked Wednesday ATC Pin-Up Challenge


Unfortunately I missed the last couple Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenges but I just HAD to make time for this week's Pin-Up Girls, a subject near and dear to my heart.  My Daddy was an artist and was particularly fond of drawing Vargas Girls.  I didn't really realize it until I found a  bunch of his sketches in the attic of my childhood home when I was cleaning it out to sell.  You see, Daddy was a romantic for sure, but a little shy, so when I saw the sketches, I have to say I was more than a little surprised.  Since then we've collected a number of Vargas prints and have them hanging in our pool (table) room.  I think they're beautiful, but when the MIL comes, we strip the walls and hide them in the attic.  LOL 

Anyway, this is hardly a Vargas Girl, but I fell in love with the image used by WW DT member Megan on a previous challenge.  It's Angel Heart from Stitchy Bear.  She's actually a cupid but I've cropped her bow and quill, along with her wings, and drew a bit more hair in.  I think she makes an adorable pin-up.  "Cheeky"  (done with my Dymo) for sure!  Thanks for a great challenge, girls!

I'm also entering it in the One Stitch at a Time Anything Goes Challenge.
