Lady Bowler

Gail requested a bowler, male or female.  Since so many of my goofy characters are men (are men just naturally goofy?), I thought I'd try a woman bowler. 

The images I googled to see poses were just hysterical.  When I think about it, the pictures I have of me bowling are pretty funny too.
I am not sure I like the pocket I put on her pants - easy to leave off.
Here is a photo so you can see how I did the shoes

The rubber soles are the throw away part from the new Pinking Hearts Border.

The glasses are from the Scallop Trim - a Sale-a-bration punch - I will cry if this punch disappears after SAB because I just discovered it is PERFECT for glasses.  (You had better get it this month, just in case)  I added a little bling to them just because I could.

Head is circle trimmed at face.

See if you can figure out the rest.

I love the way you think .... your inner child is alive and thriving on paper and punches.

Amazing! Nothing else describes what you do with punches except - AMAZING!

You are something else, Ellen Kemper! This woman is someone I know! I can just see her working in her garden! :<)

Thank you for all of the smiles that you bring! Wishing you a great weekend!

(maybe turn the pocket with the opening at the top of the hip?)

Oh Barbara Diane! She SO could be turned into a gardener. Just lower that ball arm and give her different props! You are a genius!

I think the pocket just needs to come off - or be drawn on - you know one of those pockets that are just a line and you never stick your hand in it?

And I revealed the punches when I put this on splitcoast so I best give them here too.

legs - large oval and word window
ankles - medium arrows from My Way Arrows but a strip of paper will do
shoes - 5 pt flower and pinking heart border
arms - word window
hand - heart to heart (trimmed)
shirt - full heart (trimmed)
sleeves - small oval
head - circle - trimmed a little flatter for face
nose - slot
glasses - scallop border (from sale-a-bration)
hair - scallop oval (repunched to make smaller)
bowling ball - 1.25 circle

Ellen Kemper said...
