You Are Special!

Hi guys. 
     Well it is finally Thursday and the M&M's made it to school yesterday without any more problems on the health front.  lol...  They were both very relieved to be back.  They had been worried that they would be terribly behind, and it wasn't too bad, so we are all happy.  :O) 
     I woke up yesterday with a really bad headache, but as I had taken Monday off to help with my sickies I headed to work anyway.  It came and went most of the day and by the time I got home it was down to a mild roar.  This was fine by me as I really wanted to color a little.  I have to say my headache went away and I managed to make my BFF here in town (that I am going to go see after work today) a card.  It seems like it has been forever since we have had more than 5 'hurried' minutes to talk, so I am very very happy to be heading over to her house once I pick up the M&Ms from school. (They are coming with me as she has kids their ages that they are also friends with.)  I can't wait. 
     So,  I thought that I would share my card with you all.  It started out to be my style and then I just went with where it took me.  It really isn't my usual, but  I have to say I had a so much fun just letting my imagination take me where it wanted and I like how it turned out.  Unfortunately, I noticed that in the pictures it looks a lot darker than it really is.  I think my camera is starting to wear out.  lol...
     While I was working on this card I wanted it to look like Freaky Flutter was looking out her open window (kind of like Cinderella) and holding a friendly butterfly that had decided to visit her. I got it into my head that if I used dimentionals only on the top half of her head and on her hands it would look more like an open window...  I tried to take a picture so you could see what I was talking about, but I'm not sure you can really see it that well.  I promise, in person it truly looks like she is leaning on the window frame and enjoying that wonderful sunshine with her friendly butterfly friend.  lol
    Alright guys that's it for me this morning.  I had better get the M&Ms up and going so we can head to work and school.  I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday.  Talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

I love it! I totally get the window idea! Really cute idea. It's fun when we are able to think outside of our own box!

Have a great day!

I can definitely see her leaning on the window with the little butterfly on her hand, such a great idea! Hope your headache got better!
