Whiff of Joy and a Death Wish!

ring ring:
Me: Hello
Girl: Hi Julie, I really like the card you made for me. My daughter is having an event and I would love it if you could make this card in these colors: black&white, silver and purple.
Me: Sure
Girl: Okay great, I need 300 of them
Me: Holy Shikes!
Girl: by April 7th
Me: Holy Shikes! I am truly sorry but that is impossible, I am a one man show.
Girl: I understand, how about 150
Me: UH! okay!?!?!
ring ring
Mom: Hello
Me: Mom, i just had someone order 150 cards. OMG, I still have to order stuff, Grace has a dance competition Saturday, what was I thinking........
Mom: I'll come over, we'll get them done.
Me: Your the BEST mom EVER!
Mom: Yes, See you Friday.
Me: Thanks, I love you!
So that was Saturday, Good think PTI delivers in a FLASH!!!
Now, on to my card. This image is from Whiff of Joy sent to me by Jennifer from our blog group.
Any Whiff of Joy was on my image swap request. Jennifer's mother had some so she asked her to stamp a few for me. And she did, and also made a cute little holder to ship them in. Aren't moms awesome! I just got the That's Amore paper pack from CTMH and thought it would be great with this image. I colored her with Copic Markers and used Mojo Monday Sketch69 for the layout. Used Spellbinders scallop rectangle and Favorite Findings buttons. I think she turned out great considering I am still new to Copic coloring. Well, as you can see from the conversation above I need to get a move on. Thanks for your visit. I hope to be back soon. Peace Out!!!

LOL!! I loved your phone commentary. Which card is it? You can do it! You go girl! And what I'd really like to know is what kind of event is it? It must be something if she wanted 300!!
