Elena’s policeman design is the COW, and it had me BUSTIN’!!! I started laughing even harder when I read her description, just ‘cuz I know Elena!      Elena, my computer monitor and I thank you for a jolly good spewing!!!

Anyhoo, I wanted to pop in quick-like and share some of my designs from today’s Weekly Inspiring Ideas!

I thought Policeman needed a squad car, so I modified the car from the Simple Wishes clear set, omitting (which means to not ink/refrain from inking) the gift that sits atop the car.

Tiny Star and a T5 Copic Marker (Toner Grey No. 5) assisted me nicely, as well as a Mini Dot Twinkle Sticker and Christmas Red Stickles–what’s the point without the flashing lights, right?!

The computer graphic stop sign was resized to suit the dimension of the overall card–and it cracked me that the Papaya Grosgrain Ribbon made the perfect centerline on the roadway.

I colored his uniform black, because where we live cops don’t wear navy unies . . . I wonder if that’s a WA state thing . . . everybody else seems to color them navy . . . hmmmmmm . .  (!)

My genius on this one was actually *thinking* to use the Scallop Circle for the sun on this one!  It’s POIFECT!!!  Glimmered it up a bit with some Yellow Stickles . . .

I hand drew the "wave" with a pencil on the surf paper before cutting it, as I knew I’d botch it if I tried to do it free-hand.  The fold line on this design is actually along the bottom, altho you wouldn’t guess that from the pic.  You fold down the wave, and there’s room to write a more personal message inside.

This design makes me wanna go some place warm, with sandy beaches . . . to take a nice long nap! No waaaaay would I put myself out there as shark bait!

Bet you didn’t know I was such a chicken, didja’ ?!           Shark
