rubenesque: adjective

of, relating to, or suggestive of the painter Rubens or his works; especially: plump or rounded usually in a pleasing or attractive way
Hi to all my lovely WOYWW ladies!!
How are you doing today? Here is the picture of my desk today, if you want to see the mermaid I created with all this mess, ( although mine looks clean compared to Julia's desk, lol ) then please venture back tomorrow for it. It's a little picture heavy and I didn't want to bore any of you that want it quick and fast....

Just Add Water Silly's challenge this week..something JUICY...hee hee, and what can be juicier than this naughty little cupid? This is my first time with a digital stamp and I haven't colored in anything in ages but I could not resist the images from Squigglefly that I won a couple of weeks ago. They have such fun images that it took me forever to pick out the ones I wanted! lol

Mine are colored in with watercolor pencils, accented with stickles and a rhinestone on each finger! I also got to play with my Faber Castell Pitt Pens that I got when I went down to see Donna Downey's studio, and I LOVE them, waterproof and tiny little tips for getting all those details, and such pretty colors. The wings, feet and head are all propped up with Helmars Liquid Scrapdots ( also available at Donna's store )

 hee hee, I just love this rubenesque cupid!
She is entered in CARDS TV :
Design Team challenge #14 Happy Holidays ~ Pick One
my pick - Valentines Day
cloud cut from Everyday Paperdolls
sun cut from Happy Hauntings cartridge
Martha Stewart doily
Uniball white pen
Ranger's stickles

Project Pinterest for September is up and running, I do hope you stop by and play along with us!

The 50 shades card nearly made me snort my cuppa down my nose... not a pretty sight!
Thanks for the giggle.

Well, she is definitely a sassy cupid. Reminds me of that Mae West quote "come up and see me sometime".

fairy thoughts said...

great card, she looks as if she is really going to make some trouble.
thanks for your comment this morning. I thought (stupid me)that a new laptop would be the answer to my prayers huh. I had a similar problem with e mail... just go along with instaling it as it suggests... if it is the same as mine... probably wont be though... good luck and hope you sort it

Oh a mermaid - what a tease - tomorrow it is then. Think your water spray bottle is a bit snazzy and I see you have some Tic-Tacs at the ready too. BJ#102

I can see clear space Sandee, so that’s a tidy desk in my world.
Loving the image on your cards, it really brought a smile to my face. I think it was because I can relate to her shape, Lol.

Drop by my blog and you may be lucky in my birthday blog candy draw…………whatever it turns out to be!

Happy Crafting!

Jennifer McLean said...

what total fun is this adorable rubenesque cupid. Your cards turned out perfectly! Thanks for sharing, they made me smile.

Barb King said...

Bad to the bow, that's funny! Thanks for the heads up on the Barb K winner over at Tim's blog. Sadly, it was not me, but I spent a good half hour over there looking at all the great projects he had links to. Have a great week! Barb

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I do prefer fast and quick? And down and dirty. And I am bordering on Rubenesque... are you spying on me? If so, let me apologize right now for being so boring. Not every drawer on your desk is flung open so it can't be too big of a mess.... You can do better. ;-)

Eliza said...

I know we dont call him that all the time in the house his real name is spike but we call him Yoda, like Yoda from StarTrek LOL

Is that better for you ?


Julia Dunnit said...

Love the cards, how fun they are, bet you could sell a bunch of those in no time! Yes, I admit, I think your desk is clearer than mine. And I don't have special green tic tacs...

Brenda Brown said...

Lots of crafty goodness on your desk Sandee, I love having a closer look to see all the bits and pieces.
Fun cards you have made with your prize.
Thanks for the visit.
Happy WOYWW and hope you are having a good week.
hugs {brenda} xox

Hi Sandee,

Your desk looks nice and busy!

Hmmm, those cards are interesting! haaa

Met Di and Len for the last time for dinner last night. I boo hooed when we said goodbye.


Gloria j Zucaro said...

The most voluptuous cupid ever, so juicy, such a mischievous look on her face. Some lucky person to get one of those cards. Love the stitched beams in the second card. What fun!

Queen Lightwell said...

Those cards are awesome! I heart sassy and snarky cards so much. :)
You know, I noticed you had a few drawers left I couldn't help commenting! :) It looks like you got in a serious creating frenzy in there! But still managed to keep your work surface fairly clean...wait a second! Is there a giant pile of stuff in the floor now? Somewhere? Anywhere? lol I know there is! heeheehee Maybe I'm just thinking of my own craft cave! Hope you're having fun visiting the blogs this evening. ;) Can't wait to come back tomorrow and check out the mermaid! :)

Tracey FK said...

that has made my day... hilarious... love them... totally juicy... love the way you think!!!

okienurse said...

very nice! Love the rubenesque cards! I think they are more realistic then the skinny mini barbie dolls! Have a great week! Vickie #114

Terrie said...

Excellent! Fun and lighthearted and just a little naughty - the best of all worlds. And such an 'outside the box' solution to juicy - which I have to say was a tough one for me.

Alice said...

hahaha! cute and fun! and i like her tattooed wire around her arm :)

Currie Silver said...

such fun you have!! makes me feel lucky to get to share in the "fruits" of it!!
