Vanity is NOT a deadly sin...

It's just a lovely, frosty pink piece of furniture. :)Or here, anyway.

I had so much fun making this card. I used this amazing DMC thread for the phone cord that has wire in the center of it. I wrapped it around a little stick to make the coil. Remember when phone cords had that fabric on them instead of plastic? That's exactly what this looks like. And yes, I make an entire card around that phone cord!

The vanity is Doodle Factory Boudoir, that I colored with Copic markers. The wallpaper is SU! Sending Love DSP. The "paneling" is Very Vanilla cardstock, painted with SU! shimmer paint.

The mirror is colored with a silver gel pen.

Doesn't it just make you feel pretty? :)

It's almost Labor Day! Are you doing something super fun this weekend? I am looking forward to extreme napping. If they had napping contests like those hotdog eating contests I would definitely be a contender!

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :) Want to see my other blog?


  1. Lovely and I do appreciate the work u put into that cord because yes I do remember those fabric cords. Nice touch! My in-laws had a black version of that phone for the longest time and I couldn't believe how heavy the receiver was. Talk about a disincentive for a lengthy phone call! Lol

  2. DMC makes wired stuff? HOW did I not know this?!

    nowlessi, do i have time to stop at the store on the way home tomorrow?

  3. Your work continues to astound me. It's simply incredible! And yes, I remember the fabric phone cords and I can still remember the gravely feel of "dialing" a number. Do you remember when phone numbers where alpha-numerica. My home phone PE24887 and my grandmothers was CA63232. I still call time & temp at TI44444!

  4. OMG that phone cord is fabulous!!!No wonder you built the card around it. Awesome job!
    Thanks alot, now I must have that wired DMC realize you're an enabler?

  5. this is stunning! so soft, pretty, and girly! heck, yeah it makes me feel pretty! tfs!
