Good Morning all.
     Can you believe it is once again Monday morning?  I don't know I read once that Fridays are so far from Mondays, but Mondays are so very very close to Fridays. Why is that? lol.. Oh well, it is once again Monday and I had a great weekend spent with Jerry and the M&Ms as well as Madison's boyfriend and his 10 year old brother.  Nice boys and we truly had a great time with them.
     I have a long day ahead of me, so I will get right to my card for today.  I wanted to play with my Friday Night stamp and when I pulled her out of the stamp box I noticed that poor James was just sitting there having never been inked up.
     So, I decided to do a little masking and make a none traditional Valentine's card.  I am thinking this might be the last one for the holiday. :O)  Anyway, I didn't notice until I had stamps them both together that they are actually looking at each other. Don't you just love happy accidents? I sure do!   So, other than the masking, no body swapping or any other fancy stuff I added a little bit of MME accents with two ornament hangers from the Dollar Store and my card was good to go.
      I always seem to use the same colors for skin tones and even though I have been trying to change it up a bit I can't seem to find one that I am happy with.  What's your favorite combo for skin tones?  I'd really like to know what your go-to combos are  so that I might practice and see what I like.
     Ok guys, I am off to shower and get the kiddies and myself off to work and school for the day.
As always thanks so much for stopping by.  I want to wish my new followers a huge welcome, so happy to get to know you all.  Have a great day and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

This is fabulous Lisa. I love the image and your colouring is wonderful. I think your skin colour looks fine, I use Promarkers so can't really help you there.
The design and sentiment are beautiful too.
Hugs Sue

What a cute card.
I wanted to say thank you for all the kind comments you left on my blog, and thanks for following me. I will follow both of your blogs just as soon as I can figure out why I keep getting error 404 Not Found. It's been happening to me for about six weeks now, I can't follow anyone new to me.
Love the name of both your blogs. Can hardly wait to follow you regularly.
Hugs, Julie

I love how you did her doe-eyed look, Lisa! She is certainly goo-goo over him!

A fabulous card! Hope you're having a lovely week!

Amy said...

Such a great card, love these two together!
Hope your week hasn't been too busy for you! We have finally gotten some sun this week, but never two days in a row!

This is so flippin cute! I love how you masked the image to make them a couple, looks awesome. And I use E000, E00, E11 and E13 for skin then R20 for the cheeks and blend it in with E000. Hope that helps!
