Paula is hapai!

I was so excited when I found out that our Flickr friend Paula is hapai (hah-pie')--the Hawaiian word for "pregnant". This will be her second baby and I thought what better time to use the new Mom image from The Greeting Farm. I sent this card along with some stamped images and I'm sharing it since she just received it.

I altered the image slightly by trimming off the pants that the mom was wearing and drew in and colored some legs. I also cut apart the Hero Arts sentiment so that it fit the space. I'm becoming a little more comfortable with altering designs and may soon start to switch heads and bodies.

Take good care, Paula! Have fun colouring!

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Ink: Memento, Memories
Other: Copic markers for coloring, Copic 0.3 multiliner pen, Basic Grey buttons,
Nestabilities Label One, Inkssentials white pigment pen

  3. Hey Donna, thanks for the inspiration!! I just got this set of Mom and Dad (Greeting Farm) from Kelly's givaway in the mail last week (yup, lucky me!). I may need to make this one this afternoon as our nurse is expecting TWINS and it's her birthday TOMORROW! I love how you altered the outfits!! I'm getting very "adventurous" adjusting their hair, head, neck...you name it. Check this one out if you haven't :) Have a sweet day, my friend!http://www.flickr.com/photos/15636237@N04/4130573339/

  20. This is so cute Donna, and such a lovely treat for Paula. Nice work with the 'altering' - I am planning to alter a couple of images myself to day... not sure how it will go! I got an attack of the sillies when I read that you were planning to start switching heads and bodies... whose head are 'YOU' going to switch with Donna? Thats some trick, can't wait to see it!!! Sorry, not sure what was in the new herb tea I just drank! Jo x
