{ Talk of the Town }

In January of this year, I started a series of cards that speak to the Diva in all of us! I call them 'Talk of the Town'. I was inspired by a creation in a Paper Crafts publication entitled 'You Go Girl' (I don't know if its still available, but I've gotten SO many ideas from it!). The idea is simple...create 2 women out of triangles and ovals (stay with me, here, lol), draw arms and legs, add handbags and, lastly, have them say something witty and Diva-esque! The only thing I really changed was the size of the triangles...'my' Girls have a little more junk in the trunk!! lol

Here is the first one:

The ovals and triangles are from George and the handbags are from Mickey and Friends, believe it or not! You could definitely accomplish these things without a Cricut, though. The coordinating envelope is behind the card and makes it a little hard to see that the back flap of the card consists of a strip of the PP, which I scalloped on my Cutterpede (adhere a ~1" strip of the PP to the back flap, then scallop the whole thing at once...that way it will be even!...once you have done that, you can trim down the front flap of the card to expose the scalloped edge as much as you want).

My sentiment is: 'Best Friends: You fight, I fight. You hurt, I hurt. You cry, I cry. You jump off a bridge, I rent a paddle boat and save your crazy butt!!' lol

Stay tuned for the rest of the Series!
