Talk NERDY to ME...

Good Monday morning everyone.
     Did you have a nice HOT weekend where you are?  We got up to 103 degrees yesterday!  It was super hot but we really didn't feel it too bad until I let the M&Ms talk my into going swimming.  We stayed out in our pool for over two hours.  It was a lot of fun, but once we came back in we all just could not seem to keep cool.  Needless to say our air conditioner has been on full time since Friday morning.  Even Jerry has been a tad warm and he is always walking around in sweats. lol....
     Ok guys, I am going to make this a quick one today as I have been trying since 8:30pm to get my pictures loaded of my card. So you might say  I am a little warn out at the moment.  Too much sun and not enough cooperation on my computer's part.  Thank goodness I have a laptop as well or I wouldn't be able to do a thing.  Ggggrrrr! 
    Anyway, I was flipping through some old magazines that I have and I came across a very cute card that was made up of red, yellow and black. It also used kraft as the base to the card. I just thought it was so cute.  Wouldn't you know I don't have one single piece of kraft in my stash at the moment.  I could not believe it!!!  Thankfully I did have this really cute paper from MME that was on kraft and had black patterns on it.  As you can see I made do,.. Anyway,  I really wanted to give the color combo a go so this is my take on it.  I am very happy with how it came out and I am hoping to get some more kraft card stock to put back into my stash.  Oh well, a girl can dream right?
     Ok, I said quick, do I am out of here.  Off to bed I go.  Have a great Monday everyone and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

I LOVE this!! Fantastic colors and layout!!! She always looks so darn cute no matter what colors are used on her! Love the sentiment too, perfect for her! Great card!

I know everyone will think I'm nuts, but the hot weather hasn't really bothered me. I am always on the cold side anyhow, so I'm perfectly toasty now!

This is adorable Lisa, love the color really looks good together! It's always fun to see the inside of your cards always seem to get them "just right!"
Thanks for posting a list of the stamps you used, I was wondering where the sentiment was from.

Ohhhhh, I want her so much! I have to wait until the house in IA closes before that can happen. I miss you, Lisa, and miss seeing your work several times a week. She is just too cute and love the coloring! Hugs, April
