Friends are like Flowers...

Good morning!
     No, you are not seeing things.  I am in fact posting my second card in as many days.  I know it has been forever since I have put up a post each day of the week, but  I am hoping however now that the holidays are behind us that I will have more time to spend on my creative side.   I really think I needed that little bit of down time to restore my mojo.  I am also getting very excited for the twelve new Copic colors that are due out in March, so I have to be good and make some more cards to sell. lol...  
     So for today's card I used the wonderfully CUTE C.C. Madden that is brand new from The Greeting Farm.  You all know how much I love The Greeting Farm stamps and the Creeper Crew boys and girls are one of my all time favorite stamps.  Yes, Anya is always going to be my first love.  lol...  Anyway, when I first laid eyes on Madden I just knew that I had to have her.  Not only is her name very close to my youngest M&M's name she is also just so darn adorable. 
     Well of course Madden wanted me to try out that new hair color on her, so as you can see she is a golden blond with beautiful brown eyes.  She is looking forward to it being more Spring time, much like myself, so I helped her pull out some really cute papers from 'fancypantsdesigns' and make her some arm warmers (after all it's not that warm yet) and a cute pair of high tops to match.  Her school has been having a spirit week and so she also wanted to look more 80s so in came the orange and black shirt with those puffy blue pants.  I don't know about you guys, but I think she 'like totally rocks'.  lol...
      I have been trying to use some of the little extra stamps that I pick up for under a dollar or have had forever and use them to help accent my cards.  I really am having fun with it.   Yay!!!   So I used this paper pad and fussy cut some of the flowers along with this adorable little bird.  I added some of the Sakura Glaze pen to bring out the flowers and her belt along with the little butterflies that are a small Hot off the Press set that I have. 
     Ok well I had better get a move on.  I have work and today is the last day off for the M&Ms so I am sure that Jerry is going to have a very full day.  :O)  I hope you all have a wonderful day and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

Madden looks amazing Lisa, and your springy card is a joy to see after all our grey days...luckily we have only had a little bit of snow, but I'm looking forward to spring too!
It's nice to see another card from you today, I've missed your daily posts! :)
