TGIF That means Friday Spy-Day.....

Good morning everyone.
Elena's awesome card....
      I am typing this on my laptop while I am trying to get my pc to let me load the pictures of my card that I made for the Friday Spy Day over on the Farm Fresh Challenge blog.  Margie picked an adorable card from 'theredhairedgirl'  this week and it was so much fun to CASE this card, as you can use it for just about anything.  If you are wondering what I mean, be sure to head over to the FFF challenge blog and get a look at the awesome cards the girls have made.  OMWord, they are all just fantastic and I can't get enough of looking at each and every one of them.  lol....
     When I first got a look at Elena's card my first thought was of spring, and summer all together.  Then I thought that I would like to use some of my Christmas papers (as I have a ton at the moment, sssshhhhh...) and see what I could do to that.  Well I of course had to grab Summer from the Roll Call set and give her a warm outfit, so Paul gave up his warm gym suit so that Summer could walk out in the cool air and check out all the early Christmas Lights that some of her neighbors have already put up.
    I kept her hands in her jacket pockets so that she would stay warm and I think she looks just adorable with the little bit of a mouth that I drew in for her.  (Thanks Amy for all the tutorials over the last couple of years.)  Then what do you know she looks like she has been out on a walk with her rosy little cheeks, lol... I love how it turned out.  I even fussy cut the lable off the back of the paper pad to use as my title on my card.  Not too bad for a fun little card of a cure little girl that no matter what gets her walks in.....   Now, if I can get this computer to let me get my pictures in I will get a move on and get this day started so that I can have my weekend off to play.   :O)  lol...
     Have a great day everyone and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

Totally LOVE this Lisa. Your papers and coloring are amazing. Love that die from ATS, I find myself using the heck out of it. Thanks for sharing this beautiful creation.

Super cute! I love her in her new gym suit (so nice of Paul to let her borrow it!) she does look comfy walking & admiring the Christmas lights in the neighborhood! Awesome card Lisa, I love it!
I'm sure with all the Christmas cards to make you'll be able to put a little dent in your stash of Christmas papers! ;)

Lisa, that is too cute! I love how you flipped Summer's head and Paul's body. (Funny, I use them as my Mike and Jessica.) Very cute!

Amanda R said...

Oh my gosh she is adorable! You always do the best job with mixing and matching the images Lisa and using the label from the paper pad is the perfect touch not to mention a little recycling thrown in! Hope you have a great weekend!
