Your coif·fure is a "slam-dunk"!

Something about sitting under one of those hair dryers in the beauty parlor is SO relaxing.
Maybe it is because you can zone out while the whoosh of warm air dries your locks or bakes your 'colour'. And to share the experience with a friend...
Double the pleasure!
Latest in the line of Digital Stamps from The Pixie Cottage is…

perfect alone
(sorry, I didn't think to take this picture 'til after the Tildas were seated with shadows)
or "with friends"!

This week at The Pixie Cottage our Challenge theme is SPRING

and/or you can use this sketch...

Spring is a great excuse for a new coiffe!

What will your card look like?

Magnolia Stamp Lovers Buttons and Bling

Stamps R Us for the girls
One Stitch At A Time for Mom
Sweet Stampin oh so girly

Paper Sundaes charming

* I know-you hear "charm" and you expect it to be dangling from ribbon

I actually went to Hobby Lobby in search of the perfectly charming Beauty Parlor accouterment- not a comb, brush or mirror to be had, and then along came darling Sierra, "Mom, I have some charms, want to see!?"

The scrapbooker in me affixed it as an anchor, however, its original plan was to be used in a handmade bracelet by a 9 yr. old.

Such SWEET little girls...

Hope you're having a magically good hair day!

If indeed your 'do' is a SLAM DUNK...all the better!

Speaking of "SLAM DUNKs"

(which in the States will be common lingo

with the arrival of March Madness Basketball Fever)

One of this week's new digital releases from

  3. Oh how gorgeous, love the ladies getting their hair done. But those basket ball buttons, brilliant!

    P.S Can I ask what you meant about the strip of archway? Are you refering to the copic orange line around the rectangle, or the pop up dots used to 3D the chicks? LOL I am at a loss.
