Let it all hang out

     Nothing is sacred anymore is it.  My daughter and I saw a young man in Wal-mart the other day with his pants around his knees.  How he was walking I don't know, but we got a nice view of his underwear...a sight I could have done without.  Old Sylvia here has no problem hanging her undies out for all to see either.  hee hee
     This fun stamp set is from Stamping Bella and it's called "Senior-ita Sylvia".  Last weeks challenge was to use this sketch.

     Sylvia is colored up in Copics and I used one of my new toys.  You can't see it very well, but the black scalloped border across the center was cut with a stitched scallop died from Pretty Pink Posh.  I added a bit of doodling around the image and the sentiment strips.  Here's Sylvia and her unmentionables in all their glory.
