Good morning all. 
I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  We were so busy on Saturday and the sun was shining and hot!  We were able to get everything done.  My Mom and Dad came over and helped out a lot.  Thanks Mom and Dad.  lol...However the M&M's and Jerry were all so sick yesterday.  I really think it was the heat and that they didn't get enough water.   I am pleased to say that everyone is up and running this morning.   So hopefully it's going to be a great day.  :O)
I have a super super busy week at work so I am going to get right to it.  I was playing around with my new Oliver and Amelia stamps and I had such a great time coloring up little Oliver.  He is just soooo sweet with his tussled hair and I love, love his fish bowl.  You can't see it in my pictures, but I used glossy accents on the bowl and it turned out so cute!  I then pulled out some of the latest MME papers from the 'fine and dandy' set called true blue.  I love these papers.  Great for little boy cards and such. 
Ok guys,  I hope you all have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow. Wish me luck this week.  I am pulling six full days and I have to admit that it's been a few months since I've done that, so maybe you should be wishing Jerry and the M&M's luck.  lol...  Kidding really!
Hugs, Lisa G

Very sweet, love the paper line! This is one of my fav images and I know I'm going to break down soon and get it, LOL!

Such a fantastic card! Those MME papers couldn't be more perfect with little Oliver and I really like how you finished off the sentiment on the inside of the card... that's a clever one!
I hope you (and the fam) survive your six days on... I'm sure you'll be more than ready to relax in the pool come Sunday! :)
