Good morning guys. I hope you all survived another Monday. heehee... Oh Mondays.... To quote Forrest Gump "And that's all I have to say about that." heehee. No really though I had a good Monday, but I am relieved that is has come and gone once again.
I am sort of in a hurry this morning as today is the kids' last full day of school and we still have a lot to get done before they can start their summer. We have told them however that if their bedrooms are not picked up by Wednesday they will not be swimming. I know it sounds mean, but because they are both almost teenagers they don't want to listen to us lately. Sooooo, I have found that the pool is a good motivator at the moment. Mean I tell you. baaahhhaaaahaa! Hey, I go with what works.
Ok, ok I said a quick one. So today's card I made for the Saturday sketch challenge over at CA&F blog. Be sure to check it out. They have some really cute cards over there. Now when I was thinking of what I wanted to use little Miss Cheeky Mate really wanted to be a part of this card. I didn't see any problem with that. She is after all just adorable. I do have to admit that after we had done all of her make-up (including red lipstick) Cheeky wanted me to touch up her face a little bit and we ended up smearing her lipstick onto her cheek.. :o( I was so upset that I almost didn't use her. Well we decided that not everyone is perfect, so with really Rosy cheeks we present her and her wonderful card to you. For some reason when I started to put my card together a vintage feel just kind of came over me, so I just went with it. I hope you like her and our card... Have a super day everyone. Talk at you tomorrow. Hugs, Lisa G

Cheeky Mate looks sooo good! Once again I think you are being too hard on yourself...if you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have noticed anything and I still think she looks perfect with a little rouge!
Love the vintage feel to the card and the lace border is an awesome accent!
It's looking like it wants to rain today here...hopefully your weather is nicer and the kiddos will get their rooms cleaned! LOL! ;)
