a new 'do for Jade



Here's my card for the latest Saturday Sketch challenge at Club Anya & Friends. It looked pretty simple, and I had WS Jade already colored so putting the card together would be pretty fast. Or so I thought.


As I was trimming Jade, I accidentally trimmed off one of her pigtails!  I thought about leaving just one side, but it looked too weird...so I trimmed off the other.  It wasn't my intention to alter Jade, but I'm starting to like her new look. I'm going to try trimming out another Jade, and hope to spare both pigtails!

And an FYI about the ice cream that my daughter's class made from yesterday's recipe--it received two thumbs up from the whole class. They absolutely loved it!
