Sparkly Wishes and a Monday Funday sketch by Margie...

                                                                                                                                           Are you ready to have some fun with us this week?  Be sure to head  over to  the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog and check out this awesome sketch that Margie has come up with for us this week.  I just know that you will all want to play along.                                                                                           

     Yes, another weekend has come and gone in a flash.  For some of us it has been with snow, others with loads of Sunshine.  Awww the sunshine and warm weather,  I remember it fondly.  lol....  Well, I'm not really complaining as it is that time of year when you really want that snow for the ambiance.  It did snow here a little over the weekend, but really none of it has stayed for very long yet.  Mostly it just means a trip to the clothing store to get the M&Ms some warmer jackets that meet with the standard teenagers needs and wants.  Stop laughing, I know you know what I mean.  Gggrrr!  Sometimes I think they are harder than men.  lol
     Ok I am done with the teenager and hubby bashing, so let me get into my card for today.  I wish that I could say that I really went to town on this sweet little card,  but come to find out I only colored her hair and added a little more color to her cheeks and face.  You see she has been sitting in a zip lock baggie for a year now along with the papers that go with her outfit.  As I was running way behind this evening I decided to finally pull her out and get her onto a card.  (No stamped image left behind is my motto) So after touching up her hair and face I cut everything out and added a cute little saying to make my card complete.  At that point Madison walked into the room and asked me why I was using her little Anya that she had colored last year.  "What, what do you mean you colored her?  I thought I did."  Well, come to find out Madison had colored all of her and had me help her to get the hair the way that she wanted.  Needless to say my sweet Madison wanted me to make sure and let you all know that this is her coloring and NOT mine.  So my fellow bloggers here is my card with Madison's colored image of Beanie Anya.  All in all I think this turned out cute and it really was a very quick card to put together.  lol.... So be sure to head over to the Farm Fresh Challenge blog and play along with us for your chance to win.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to talk at you all tomorrow.  Wish me luck and a ton of patience as Jerry and I are going out to finish up our Christmas Shopping today. 
Hugs, Lisa G

LOL! Madison did an awesome coloring job on might get her to color couple more images so that you'll have them handy just for those days when you don't have much time! ;) Love the card, it's so sweet!
We got some more snow this morning but luckily it has stopped and I'm hoping it won't start back up! I hope you are having a fun shopping day and finding everything you're looking for!

Love the tag-team you and Madison did with the card. She did a fabulous job coloring Beanie up! The vellum is yummy, I need to pull some out and put some on a card too.
I hope to play this one. Looks like fun!
Take care and btw, I haven't even started Christmas shopping so you girl are ahead of the game!! Lucky!
