Hot flashes

Over at Twofers the theme this fortnight is THE HEAT IS ON. I struggled finding an idea for this theme and a rubber/clear stamp that would work (obviously forgot about the possibility of hot drinks...), but I came over this uninked wooden stamp in my stash (from AI?) and though it looked like she was troubled with hot flashes. So I colored her with Promarkers, fussy cut her and made a scene with papers for a wall paper and floor.
The sentiment is in Norwegian and it translates something like this: "Inside of every older person there's a young person wondering what happened". Thats' s true isn't it? Sometimes we all still feel like young girls. I used my stitched oval dies from Dienamics to cut the sentiment.
JAI #324...Inspiration!I machine stitched around the edges.

This card is for:
Twofers - #25 The heat is on

Just Add Ink – #324 Inspiration (floral "wall paper" wooden floor)

I agree with you, Pia, I always still feel like a young girl, and sometime even like a baby girl!! LOL :D The age is inside or outside? As we feel ourselves depending by the days.... Sometime I feel as an 80th y/o, too!! LOL :) ...Reality is somewhere in between... :)
This old lady seems really troubled with hot flashes, and love how you have achieved the scene with this dp on the back, you have take a perfect floor and wallpaper!! The sentiment in the oval has the right space, it's so striking!
Have a great Sunday and feel yourself very young.... so life it's more fun! ;)
