Tickled Pink Happy Birthday Pippa

G'day!  I'm back today with a Happy Birthday card featuring a little Pinkette cutie from Tickled Pink Stamps called Pippa.  Isn't she sweet!  I love her long braided hair.  I think I'm a little jealous of it since I just had my hair cut a couple of days ago and I ended up with something totally different than I asked for.  I've been growing out a bad cut for the last 6 months and now it looks like the haircut I just grew out.  Ugh!  Well like my husband says..."It's just hair...at least you still have some on your head." That was said just before he asked, "What are you crying about now?"  Men...just don't understand the psychology of hair...a woman's crowning glory!  As a hairstylist myself I just have to wonder how, what, why, this happened?!  Why did I move so far away from my awesome hairstylists who always knew exactly what I wanted?!  How did this new hairstylist give me such a great trim last time, but seemed to struggle this time?  WTH?  There's nothing I can do about it so I just have to remind myself that everything happens for a reason, and who am I to judge a situation as good or bad?...it just IS.  And this too will pass.  In the mean time I'll just keep my head down and keep coloring.
A special thanks to Kellie for sweet little Pippa...hope you like her.

Stunning card.
Not only is the image adorable and your colouring perfection. I also love the details, like the wood planks you stamped on the background. So pretty.
As for hair...that sucks, hate when I get a bad cut. But from someone with thinning hair..I am just happy when I can cover up the thinning parts, lol.

Sorry about the bummer hair cut, I feel your pain as I've been there once or twice myself. At least it doesn't look like it has zapped your mojo at all because this card is just fantastic! Pippa is colored beautifully and those MME papers make the perfect home for her too... love!
