New Tattoo & Crafty Sentiments: Fun in the Sun

Sooo - here it is!  I took Cass to get her first tattoo yesterday, we had decided quite a while back that we wanted to each get our zodiac sign tattooed on our foot.  I am a Leo, she's a Taurus.  She went with a pretty spot of color in her stars, I kept mine black:

Here's mine from another angle:

 And hers:

We had fun and I just love how they came out!  This was my 6th tattoo and I have to say this one hurt the most, but Cass handled it like a trooper.  I was so proud - sniff sniff.  :)
I have a card today for the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments are very generously offering a freebie for us if we want to play along, and I was happy to have an excuse to create with this cutie.  I paper-pieced her clothes, shoes & socks, ice cream & cherry, and her little hair barrettes.  The rest is colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  Paper is from MME, ribbon tags are from SU!  Buttons, flower (center is just a silver brad covered in red Stickles), and sentiment are from my stash.  Peace.


  1. Love your tatts Jenn but I wouldn't be brave enough lol.
    Super sweet card and love the paper piecing. Just adorable.

    Hugs ~ Mette
