Black, White and Mimi


Morning Cupcake Lovers :)


Monday morning of course, means time for a Cupcake and this week, I chose Black, White, Plus One as our Challenge. The Cupcakes have made fabulous projects to inspire you, and we have prizes from Crafts U Love and Pink Gem Designs. Pop over for all the details.
 
I'm hoping to get this one up without Mrs A noticing. She's gonna be after me for putting a little girl in a black dress! I've put some spots on it to disguise it. Ssssh, she might get distracted by the pink. Sssssssh!

 I really wanted to use Mimi, she's so adorable and so far un-coloured. I had planned to go with red as my feature colour. But when I realised I had to give her a black dress, (white wasn't working for me, I think I've been colouring too many snowmen recently, and I couldn't give her a string of black hearts could I?) I quickly swapped to pink, Mrs A's fav colour. I'm telling you, Mrs A gets you when you're not expecting it. Quick, she's coming... SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHH!


I'd like to enter Mimi at Sweet Stampin - Flowers

Perhaps black isn't the best colour dress for a little girl, Fluff, I'm inclined to agree with the Mumster about that generally but on this occasion, it's just perfect! Fab colouring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I just love your pretty roses which match her shoes and positively pulls on the heart string! Hugs, Lesley

Sarah said...

Hi ya, oh my this one is just gorgeous! I actually don't think a black dress for a little girl is too bad - you've made it spotty that helps! And if you were to see what SWMbO puts on, I think you'd flip!

She went very 80's the other day with a dress that has got wide bands of almost neon colours across it, teamed it with a pair of black leggings and neon socks - hmmm now that's individual style for you!

Gorgeous cards in your previous posts as well - I would mention how much I like the snowmen, but it's not December yet!!!

Sarah

PS - I'm considering going over to the dark side (Copics) for pinks, you may well be waffled at via email soon, if that's OK?

Debra Miller said...

Love this image. Beautiful Faye!

Jen said...

Keep It Sweet and Simple said...

Well, she looks adorable in her black, spotty dress.
I agree, you couldn't have done white - little girls are complete muck magnets (or was that just mine?)
