Please Come To My Party - We'll Eat Cake!

Dear Red Sox,

Please stop losing.  You are hurting my Mommies feelings.  She is beginning to think you don't care.  Get it together and win a game or two, huh?  Really.  I don't think that's asking too much.  It's for my MOM!

Thanks,
A disbelieving member of Red Sox Nation

Okay....now that we have that taken care of....let's move on to some fun stuff!!!

I was totally inspired by the challenge over at Design Dollies, so I thought I would jump in!





Please Come To My Party...

"Please Come To My Party..."

This is a fun mixed media piece on 5x7 canvas board.

Doesn't she look lovely?  She is quite ready for the party.  Quite ready, indeed!  This piece sort of cracks me up because it says, "We will put on our makeup and when we are pretty we will eat cake!"  HA!

Ummm....have I ever told you about my makeup regimen?  Yeah, there's a reason for that.  I.  Don't.  Have. One.  I don't wear it.  At all.  Hate the stuff.  I'll put something shiny or shimmery on my lips now and then, but even that is rare.  For reals.  The Hubbums was looking for eye liner for his play this weekend and, well, we will be going to buy some!  LOL!





Please Com To My Party - Close

Ummm...FYI...you don't HAVE to wear makeup to wear eat cake, but that's okay.  We'll pretend.  Just this once!





Please come to my party...we'll all eat cake.

your party invitation is CUTE, and stinkin' hilarious! if anything, i'd be taking OFF the makeup to eat the cake, as it just messes things up anyway. :)

so glad you've played with the Design Dollies, girlfriend! and i'm jealous that you don't have to wear makeup to look lovely (read: HUMAN). :)

the wrapped feather is my favourite element here - love it!

No makeup on today, but I'm ready to eat cake! No, I take that back. I'm trying to lose weight, not gain it. Love this piece J -- the quirky saying totally fits that cute little miss in her party dress.

Regina said...

LOVE this invite.....so when is the party? LOL Of course I will HAVE to wear my makeup...at my age I wouldn't be caught doing anything without it!! ^_^ You on the other hand....enjoy being such a beauty!!

Hugs,
Regi

Cute

Scrappy Girl said...

I hate makeup too! Love your creation!

Heckety said...

Ummm, I think its cleaner when one EATS the cake instead of wearing it- but my girls would definately disagree. Anyhow who am I to laugh at a typo when I can't even spell! Or rather, I can spell, but my computer can't!!
I love this work! I love the girl and the words and the colours and the way you've put it all together! Its just happy, that's all, carefree!

Diana Fisher said...

This is amazing, girlie!! I am loving this, so artsy and fun! Great stuff!!!

Tina said...

Super fun! I agree about the make, and the cake. I can do without one, but not the other!

What a fun party that would be for little ones! (not me, I hate makeup too!)

bookette said...

very cute! And I rarely wear make-up myself. I own it. I put it on if I remember. Or if it's Sunday. Or if I have to meet a client. but it's not an everyday thing. People are always telling me what nice skin I have - can't help but think it's because I don't put a bunch of goop on it every day.
I think you look better than I do, though.
keep up the crafty goodness - I love checking in to see what you've been up to!

It has pizzazz! It has romance! It has delicious colours and plenty of texture. It is just plain gorgeous!

Faerie Moon Creations said...

I'm ALWAYS ready to put on make-up and eat cake. Two of my favorite things! LOL Great job with the invitation - I LOVE the feather on it. :) Don't even get me started about the Red Sox...it is very sad. Maybe soon they'll pick up...maybe. :) Talk to you soon! Theresa

Jana said...

I'm all for using the pink icing for blush. That has to count. Doesn't it???
Love your invite. I'll be at your party.

Whimsical Creations said...

So pretty!

I don't wear makeup either.

Pam said...

I love it! I would like to get more into mixed media art. One of these days.....

If I had to wear makeup to eat cake, well, I would be skinny as a rail.;-). TFS!
