Monday Fun Day....

Good morning everyone.
     Don't you think that there should be a catch phrase for Mondays just like the Wednesday and Friday has?  I mean come on Wednesday is often called 'Hump Day'  Fridays has 'TGIF' and boy don't we all love that one.... Well I got to thinking about this just about the sixth time I tried to load my pictures for today's post.  I kept thinking, Monday should be 'I can't believe it's already Monday!'... Sorry, I was just getting so mad that my printer and computer had decided once again that they didn't want to play together.  The really stupid part of the whole thing is that on Saturday Jerry and I went to town to buy some printer ink.  While we were there Jerry wanted to buy me a Canon Printer as they say they have 'cheaper inks' and print very good pictures.   Well the style we were looking at was a great price, but the inks (there were 4 cartridges all together) ranged from $11.95 for the black up to $13.95 for each additional color cartridge.  I just could not see spending the money on the printer and the ink....Of course Jerry had to point out that I end up swearing at my printer 9 times out of 10 when it won't just load my pictures.  lol....  I am sure you can all guess that I didn't tell him that indeed it would not load then tonight.  So because of that I am now typing on my laptop and I hope that my pictures turn out good as I haven't cropped or adjusted the lighting on them from this computer,
     Ok,  I have rambled on long enough so I had best get to my card for today.  As you probably already know we are having a great Monday Fun Day over on the FFF Challenge blog this week.  All you have to do is add some stitches on your card or project to play along.  Those stitches can be sewn, written on or you may use a sticker or rub-on,  It's all up to you. 
     I have a friend that has tickets to go see Tim McGraw in concert this summer in  Nashville.  I decided that I wanted to  use little Travel Anya and some of the 'Wonder' paper pad to make her a going away card.  I am sure she is going to love it.  I wanted it to be a travel card as this paper pad has maps, signs and all kinds of plains, trains and auto mobiles.  Perfect for what I had in mind.  As you can see when I pulled out Travel Anya she wanted to get her hair done a little differently so it would look like she was ready to have some fun. I got to looking at all the cute hairstyles and asked Simply Anya if we could use her hair style and copy her adorable opened eyes.  I have to admit that I am really happy with how Anya turned out and I think she is going to love seeing Tim McGraw while she is on her travels.  lol
     Ok guys, I hope you all have a great Monday.  If you get a chance be sure to head over to The Greeting Farms Farm Fresh Challenge blog and check out all the fun cards the DT has made with their stitching.  I ended up writing in my stitches as I didn't have the time to pull out my sewing machine. 
     Ok, I am out of here.   I work tomorrow and then I have Tuesday off as the Cats have Dr's appointments and I have a few other errands that I need to take care of.  Talk at you all later. 
Hugs,  Lisa G

Awesome card Lisa! I really like how you added the little signs to the corners, it reminds me of the stickers people get on their luggage when they use their passports, cute idea!

Eeeeek! You call it a new hairstyle and I call it a beheading, lol! Even so, I love your travel cute and ready to go.

Computers, some days I just want to drop-kick them!
