sending love your way...

Good morning! 
     Well, here we are and it is Monday once again, but that's ok as I only have to be at work until 1pm today and then I get to start my VACATION until January 2nd.  Yay!  I am so so ready for it.  lol...
     Poor Mitchell, he is really ready for it to Christmas morning.  He doesn't want to rush his vacation time, but he really wants to get to those gifts.  lol... He'll be ok however as we always open our Pj's on Christmas Eve (early, so Jerry can wash them) and then we open up a couple of gifts in the early evening.. 
     I am going to get right to today's card as I need to start getting ready for work.  I still had a couple more cards to make this weekend, even though they won't get to there destinations until after Christmas.  So I sat down yesterday and got going on them.  I am happy to tell you that I was on a roll as I did indeed finish all of them. 
     When I started making this card I wanted to use a stamp that can be used as an anytime kind of stamp, so I printed out the Tiddly Ink's stamp called 'Girl's Best Friend' and put her in her Pj's so that her and her little buddy here could celebrate our family tradition with us. lol...  I had a lot of fun coloring this one up and I loved making patterns with my colorless blender to help her jammies look somewhat like the papers as well as like jammies.  :O)   I usually see her as a redhead, but this time I wanted to make her a brunette and I am quite happy with how she turned out.
     That's it for me today as I am off to get ready for work and then I have to put it into overdrive and head out to get a couple last minute things that I really need to pick up for the big day.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve and I will talk at you all tomorrow. 
Hugs,  Lisa G

Ok, Lisa, I love every darn thing about this card. Her curly hair looks wonderful, and I love how you rounded just two of the corners on your sentiment, how cute! And her clothes truly look like pj's! Merry Christmas to all of you and enjoy your time off!
