Why being my friend "sucks" & a new design. . .

Sooo, this little number is for a great friend of mine - Tracy! We met in college - in a very lame class. The professor looked like an 80 year old Kramer! That really has nothing to do with anything - it just makes me laugh when I think of him and that hair! Trust me, Tracy will be laughing when she reads this . . . anyhoodle - we were due at the same time - literally the exact same date! But her little girl, Chelsea, came 2 days after Emsley.
Now, silly girl Tracy, didn't want to find out the sex??? I know, I question her sanity as well! Modern Technology, I told her! But she wouldn't listen. Now, I did tell her it was girl {because I was having one and we figured we had the same conception date as well as due date.} You all know there is a method to all creation!!! {I will give you the skinny on that one later!} But since she didn't know {for sure} who her baby was - - - - I could NOT do a painting!! Well, 8 weeks after birth, I'm finally completing it! Wait, who am I fooling . . . I started on this joker yesterday AND finished it yesterday! {What a slacker!} It is now waiting for the sealer! I sooo should have done this one for evah ago and I really felt soooo bad everytime I thought about what a loser friend I was and how I haven't done a painting for her! I'm surprised I have any friends! Because I do them all this way! I hope she will forgive me. All these kids I now got, slow me down. I'm really just now getting back in step and keeping up with some things {I did say "some things"} . . . as I remind all those who know me, "I'm like the old woman who lives in a shoe!"

Tracy - I hope you love it!! I know you have the "green and white" going on in lil' miss's room. And you did mention you would like to throw in some pink!! Since the room was unisexed in a major way - I made this 12 x 12 VERY girlie.

The chain of pearls around the "C" are very "pearlized" looking AND the dot roses have fine glitter on them - I'm very much in love with this design and thinking of starting a new "collection" with it.

Tell me what you guys think . . .

. . . . and for all those other patient friends of mine, don't give up on me! I still haven't done one for Emsley either. See it could be worse, you could be my kid! tee hee
