Self Portrait

At least that's what hubby said when he saw this card I made using Squigglefly's Computer Trouble digi image.  His exact words were, "That looks just like you when you're not happy with your laptop!"  To my dismay, I secretly think he's right...sigh.

I created this card for the new challenge at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog.  They ask that you use a Squigglelfy image (click for FREEBIE) and the following sketch.

I colored my image with Copics, then cut her out and popped her onto patterned paper with dimensional dots.  I framed the scene onto coordinating cardstock and center it onto my card face, using the sketch provided (after heavily inking the edges of, well, everything!).  All my papers were from my big file drawer o' paper stash.  I don't have much time left to use it all up, but I'm trying, believe me!

I got the quote from where I find lots of great words to go with my digi's.  I thought this one fit the bill, because admit it, you have all experienced the unexpected drop in speed when you need something fast.  So best not let your computer know what you want, eh?!

Drop by Squigglefly so you can play in their challenge and have a chance to win a great prize.  And keep on crafting!

This is great Pat! I love the papers you chose for your background, and I think so many of us can relate to this image! Sorry it took me so dang long to get by here!
