Call Me Rita

You ever have the best laid plans and then they all fall through the cracks?
Well, that is sort a ~ kind a what happened to me!

Last week while I was on 'Darnells' blog I saw it was 
International Womens Day
and that also she had some cute and funny cards for the occasion.
So I got all hepped up to make a few of my own.
And that I did....
however, I did make 3 cards for IWD, 
but never had the chance to post them....
I hate it when that happens!

So, I decided to post one of them today
(you will see the others 'debut' at later times.

I used a very old, but fun stamp my daughter bought me years ago.
It is an American Art Stamp by Emerson Quinn.

I stamped it, then used my Copics for coloring.
I know you probably can't tell, 
but her glasses are rimmed in purple glitter.
I dug in my scrap bags for the papers.
I kind of loved them as they look a bit like her tropical drink
she is 'sipping'!!

A bit of twine and a pretty brad were added.
Just a fun card to send to a friend!

I will be entering this in the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks .... Humorous
