Wingin' it.

42. Today's my 42nd birthday. I'm trying to ignore it; if I don't acknowledge it, it goes away, right? Apparently when you turn 42, you tend to nap a lot. I took the day off and by 1pm was on the couch snoring. It could be because I was up at 7am trying to clean the 6 foot tall cat-hair dust bunnies from my bedroom while waiting for the Slumberland guys to deliver my orthopedic bed. Next up, orthopedic shoes and a nursing home tour. Ahhh, gettin' older. Good times.

These cards were made by request for my travel manager. Remember the meeting I staffed during the blizzard? She likes to send these cards out to hotel staff and planners who helped make the meeting successful.
I love making these wings, they don't require a lot of coloring to make them pop! My talented friend Heather Nichols (Pinefeather) taught me this outlining technique, she uses it a lot on her snowmen images. For white images, instead of coloring them in, just outline them with your aquapainter and glitter the outline. The stamps are from SU's "Fashion Statements". So I'm off to dream of angel wings. After all, I'm 42 and it's 9:30, waaaaaaaaay past my bedtime! SNICKER!
