Call the Girly Police!

Not only about this card - girly girly though it is - but about me! I went & had my hair done on Friday for the first time in 2 years, and had a peek-a-boo streak put in....in green, my favourite colour. Very girly-feeling, and I love it! And then, I put nail polish on for the first time in maybe 10 years? I found it at Hallmark, of all places, and it's UV reactive polish. Indoors it's clear, and outdoors it turns a lovely sheer shade of coral. Next thing you know I'll start wearing makeup every day or something ridiculous like that...

Supplies: papers from Cosmo Cricket "DeLovely;"
floral gem strip from Recollections;
rub-on butterflies from the $store;
'birthday girl' sticker from SRM
It's funny: in creating, the girlier the better, but in my personal life, nah. Not really. And lately I have just really been enjoying the girly things in life. Perhaps my Stockholm Syndrome at living in a house full of boys is finally wearing off? If suddenly I don't find fart jokes funny any more, that's when I'll know for sure that girliness has taken over. I don't foresee it going that far!

xoxo,
Jessi

I can relate: I tend not to be too girly, either, but it's fun to make girly-girl cards. I love this one of yours. The colors are terrific!! Enjoy that new nail polish--sounds fun!!

Jessi you're too funny!! I think it's great you put green in your hair. If I wasn't in front of little impressionable kids all day, I'd put in pink!! I only wear polish on my toes and always wear tennis shoes.

Your card is just fabulous. I love all things flowery and pink!! But I too am such a "guy"!

Thanks for your kind encouraging words. Means a lot to me. Have a great week.
