Hi guys. I hope your day is off to a great start. I am super busy this morning before I have to head to work so I will get right to my news and card for the day. When I got home last night I found my ATS order sitting on my desk. Yes, I kissed my DH and the M&Ms first and I even said hello to Lucy before I sat down to look like I was casually looking at what was inside the package. heehee.... I was very excited as I was able to pick up two more of the awesome Sweet November Stamps by Amy Young. This time I purchased Virgo and Sagittarius. These ladies are so pretty and they can be used for so many different kinds of cards. (LOVE THEM!) I can not wait till I have all of them. Along with the stamps I also picked up the next MME Stella & Rose -Hattie 6x6 paper pad. Very cute, Love the blues. Last but by far not least I purchased the Kaisercraft Utopia paper pad. WOW, this came with 2 foil papers, 10 specialty and 1 flocked. It also had 4 sheets of die cuts. I usually don't spend over $5 on a pad, but I thought I would give this one a shot. Let me just say "I am sooooo Happy that I did." This pad is loaded with the prettiest papers that I have seen for some time. Love, love it. Ok, let me get to my card for the day. I of course had to play with some of that wonderful MME paper that I have been obsessed with lately and I couldn't think of a better girl to get in the mood with it as much as Friday from the Creeper Crew. She is just a super happy girl (and why not? I mean her name is Friday.) and she is so so adorable. I also see her as a spunky red head, so I used my friend Amy Young's color combo to color her hair. I really love how this curly red hair comes together. You can see Amy's great video here to get a better idea on how she does it. I then put some of the great buttons from Basicgray to add a little kick to the whole card. I have to say that I really had fun making this one and I love how it turned out just like I envisioned it. lol... As you can see I am also trying out some of the different skin tones, and I think I love this one. It doesn't even look blotchy to me. Yay! Well guys have a great day. I hope that the sun is shining on you no matter where you are today. Talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G
