Good morning everyone. 
     Can you believe that it is already Tuesday?  I hope that everyone who celebrates the 4th of July had a wonderful day.   We really didn't do much yesterday as we had our Bar-B-Q the day before.  We did however go swimming and stayed in the pool after dark so that we could watch the town's fire work display from our backyard.  It is really nice getting to see it and not having to spend the whole day downtown with tons of people.. lol... Yes, I am getting old.  :O)   I have to say that our town put on one heck of a display this year!  Madison was so excited and squealing every time a huge multicolored one would explode.  It was just fantastic!
      Ok, as I have to go back to work today I had better get to my card.  Tickled Pink Stamps is having a Design Team call.  You can enter projects or cards that you have made in the past as well as new ones.  You can also enter as many times as you would like,  so I thought that I would use the awesome stamp that Kellie gave us for free called Lil Lolita-Christina.   I just think she is soooo cute and I hadn't had time to color her up until now.   As you know I had just gotten the new BG paper pad- Out of Print and I just had to put her with it.   I have to say that I am truly pleased with how she came out.   I also got the chance to use one of  Lindy's Stamp Gang awesome sentiment stamps and I love, love how well it stamps and how easy it was to use part of it on the outside of the card as well as the inside.   As you all know I don't usually make cards that have a lot of different prints and colors going on,  but OMWord, I just love how this one came out.  I see it as being simple, but fun all rolled into one. :O) 
I hope that you all have a wonderful day.  I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs,  Lisa G

So pretty Lisa. I love that DP and no I don't have it yet, as my wish list is way bigger than my wallet and bank account is. You did a fab job with her, your coloring and details look great. Oh the sentiment is the perfect touch.
