Life is better...

Hi guys,
      I hope that you all had a great weekend.  We had a full, but very fun weekend.  Madison and I babysat on Saturday and then we all went 'Midnight Bowling' with some friends of ours.  I swear I haven't done that since 1988 and even though I am soooo much better when I am bowling on  the WII, we all had a great time and can not wait until we go again.
     So, before I get to my card I just wanted to let everyone know that Jerry has once again decided to try out a new company for our Internet and do to billing and timing I might not have any Internet for the whole week starting Wednesday.  booo hoooo.... lol,  you'd think I was the teenager. :O)
      Ok, with my bad news out of the way let me get to my card for today.  Last week AmyY was giving away some of her Sweet November Stamps from this months new release and I was one of the very lucky winners. Yay for me!!!  I was fortunate enough to win this cutey and a bunch of goodies along with her.   This is  Mermaid Nalu and I think she is just adorable!  I have to wait until payday and then I am going to go over to 'All That Scraps' and pick up her two sisters as they are adorable as well and I don't want her to be missing them.  :O)   I am sure that you all know this anyway, but Amy always gives away some awesome candy as well as her stamps and so I such a great time using some of the papers and embellishments that she sent along as well.  In fact everything on this card was made from my winnings with the exception of the little seashells and the hemp.
     Thanks again Amy, you are always so sweet and so generous with us all.  I had so much fun coloring her up and then using these papers.  I have not seen these before and I loved each and everyone of them.
     Ok guys, it is getting late and I have work early, so I will bid you all a great week and hopefully catch up with you all soon.
Hugs, Lisa G

Awesome papers.   I just loved this little whale friend.  She was sweet enough to make my inside of my card sentiment for me.  

I used some of the dp to paper piece her tail and then I used my Spicas to give it that
scale/fin look to it. I wish that the picture would show all the shiny as well as real life, but you get the idea.

Aw man, I'm sorry to hear about your internet Lisa. I hope you get a new provider and are back in the swing of things soon.
And I love what you've done with the SN candy kit! Nalu looks beautiful and right at home on those Glitz papers, I also love how you used the flower in the corner kind of like a sun. :)
