Good morning all. 
     Wow, what a quick weekend.  I am not complaining, but doesn't it seem like time is just flying by.  OMWord!  lol... Oh well,  we had such a great weekend.  Not anything too exciting other than just enjoying the time off  together.  That of course seems to be taking our morning walks and going swimming when I am not trying to squeeze in a little crafty time for myself.   I have to color!  I do however tend to be staying up until 1 or 2 in the morning then getting up at 6am on the weekends.  Sometimes that make for a very sleepy Mom, but I have always been like that even when I was little I would stay up late with my Mom and then head off to school the next day.  lol... Madison seems to have taken after me in the night owl department.  She just doesn't like to get up in the morning.  She is like Jerry in the morning.  You just don't talk to her for an hour after she gets up.  lol...
     I did however get an awesome package in the mail on Saturday.  Yes, my order from The Greeting Farm came and I just had to make some cards with my new goodies.  That leads me into today's card.  One of the stamps that I received was non other than the wonderful CC Piper.  I don't know about you guys, but I just love the Creeper Crew and their awesome eyes.  So much fun to color!  Anyway, I colored Miss Piper up and added some soft colors to her as she wants to be goth, but she really is a girly-girl at heart. lol....I also used up some of the new BG dp 'Out of Print' as I think it added a somewhat  grunge/girl look to the whole card.   After I picked out my papers and colored her up I was not sure how I wanted to put it all together, so I headed over to the brand new Pink{Ink} challenge blog for some inspiration.  Right away I knew that this sketch was just what I needed.  I am not too sure if you need to use TP stamps for this blog, but I still loved the sketch so I decided to use it for Piper. 
     Ok everyone that's all for me today.  I hope you all have a great start to your week and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G
