Good morning everyone.
I hope that you all have a great day so that you can start your weekends. I have to work this weekend, but it is only until 1pm on Saturday so I won't complain. I have two kids that have no interest in going to school this morning, so I will keep this short so that I can give myself extra time to get them MOTIVATED! bawwwwhaaawwwwhaaa......
Let me get right to it. I wanted to make a card for Mystery Monday over at the CA&F blog and play with Beanie Anya. So, I put them together. I also used a different combination for her skin as she was outside in the cold and you just know that sweet face is really chilled. Don't you just love those long pony tails too? I think she is just so super sweet and I can't wait to give her a ton of different hair colors. heehee... I made this little sweetheart with black hair because I was checking out some videos on YouTube last weekend when I ran across Marie's videos on how she colors black hair with Copic markers. You can see her finished card here. I really liked her method and I have to say I love how mine turned out as well.
Well guys I had better get a move on. Have a great day.
Hugs, Lisa G

Another sweet TGF card Lisa. Oh I forgot to tell you on the previous post.. I love the way you did the inside of the Beannie Anya card!! It really looks awesome!!
I love the layout you used here on this one too!! I hope you ahve a great Thanksgiving weekend and get in alot of crafting time.
Oh and to answer your question.. No I don't sleep much at all at the MOST 5 hrs a night but most of the time it's only 3 or 4 hrs.
If I slept I'd never get my crafting time in, plus I need at least 2 hrs to myself after everyone has gone to bed. That's what keeps me sane. It's funny that with all my crafting I get done I am still always behind. Like my Steampunk placecards I made.. I never got the other ones done. I never had the time to make anymore. But I still gave my Mom, Dad and one of my sisters theirs!!
I am swapped with orders for Handmade Christmas gifts this year too. I hope I can get them done on time.
