Boop Boop Dee Betsy!

As in Betsy from Stitchy!  It's One Stitch AT A Time time!  Boop Boop dee(?) Boop!  It's a lovely Sunday morning, don' you think?  And have I a grand challenge for you!  What can't we live without?  Your right!!!  You guessed it!  LOVE!!!   Ahhhh, the pleasure of it all...tingling from your head to your toes.  Not hungry, can't sleep, preoccupied.  Sort of like when you sink your teeth into your favorite chocolate.  Yes, love.  Okay, snap out of it, Manderly and get going on this post!!!  Well, aren't us artists the romantic type?  I've known a few who totally make this a lie, but never mind.  Okay, here is Betsy, drawn by Stitchy, available in the StitchyBear Store, made for the One Stitch At A Time Challenge, with the theme this week of "Love."


A closer peek at Betsy:

This has to be one of my favorite images to color and make up into a card!  Colored with Prisma Pencils, Romantic Rectangle Dies, ribbon and lace from Hobby Lobby.  I decorated the inside but you notice I forgot to take a picture of that!

I am positive my Teamies have had fun with this challenge at OSAAT too, so let's both head over there and see what they are up to!  Fall in love this week, fall in love again this week, find something or someone to love, love the One above, and make a luuuuuv card!

Yeah, a Bright Spot already this morning!  What's yours?

Thank you so very much, new Followers!  Blowing all of you a kiss...did you feel it on your cheek?  Just a peck...naw, it is really a big juicy one!

Hugs too, Friend!
