The paper is "Wanted" by Cosmo Cricket. My daughter picked out the paper. I wasn't sure if it would be "too much" with the giraffe pattern. I rather like it now. I colored the image with Copics. The sentiment, by Stampin' Up, is from my recent candy win. Thank you again, Audrey.
Copics: C0, C1, E08, E31, E50, E61, E53, E55, R11, R20, R21, R22, W1, W3, W5, YG03, YR12, YR14
I must relay the story about them. When I moved to Arizona twenty-one years ago my neighbor and I went out to a couple yard sales one Saturday morning. I saw this amazing set of seven Cyclopedias published in 1889 for only three dollars. They were huge! I wanted to buy them, but decided not to because of the size. On the way home I kept saying "Darn, I should have bought them." I absolutely love antiques. After I was home about an hour my husband told me to just go buy them. I hurried back, but they were gone. The next day my neighbor called and told me she had something for me. She had gone back to the yardsale before me and bought the books. What a wonderful neighbor! They are still a very treasured possession.
I also collect antique jugs and bottles so I put a few of them in the picture also. It's nice to use props occasionally. I have quite a bit of antique phone equipment. Hopefully, I can figure out how I might photo that with a card. I'll have to start looking for just the right digi.
