Good morning to everyone. 
I have to start off today by telling you that I think Mother nature has decided to let us know that she will pick when it is summer and when it isn't.  lol... Every since we let the kids swim Tuesday after work it has been raining to some degree.  Mind you I am not in anyway complaining... I would rather put up with our rain any day than to ever have to live through any kind of tornado or be within 100 miles from one ever ever again.    I am truly praying for each and everyone who has been put through that this past week or so.  When I was about 7 or 8 we lived in Georgia and we had a tornado run right next to our home.  I will NEVER EVER FORGET it or how scared I was at the time.  Gee, do you think that might have something to do with the fact that I really don't like the movie  The Wizard of Oz?  Yes, I admit it,  I absolutely hate that movie.  My kid's have never even seen it as I really do not think it a good movie for little kids to see. lol
My boss loves to make fun of me, but I am finding out that there are a lot of closet Wizard of Oz haters out there.  :O)  Sorry, I didn't mean to ramble on this morning.  So, let me get right to my card.  I have no clue as to what I did with the card I was going to post, so I sat down after dinner last night and used my newest addition to my Greeting Farm Stamps.  Yes, I have finally purchased OA-My Favorite Thing.  I have always thought that they were very sweet looking but I have been busy buying the Creepers and Anya and Ian so these guys have had to wait their turn.  As I was in a time crush I decided that I would start off with little Amelia here. She wanted to send a friend of mine a little something so we used her on the card. I really really loved coloring her and her hair. Talk about fun.  Now, for another one of  my little secrets.  I was so crunched for time that I didn't even make an inside to my card.  :O(  It just feels so wrong, so today when I get off work I am so going to get that done. 
Ok guys, I have rambled long enough.  Have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Lisa G

Hi! Lisa,
Dont know whether I've told you this...when blogger tells you to sign in, do it..but underneath there is little box with a tick, says keep me signed in, take the tick away and then it runs better.
The few I have told tell me it works for them too.Thats what I did.
Onto your card. STUNNING..fabulous colouring,and image.Really precious.
Good luck..

Hi Lisa,
I don't know if I'm a fan of the WoOz but I do know that I don't like the tornado part of it. It's like it's making fun of Mother Nature. I'm Cali so summer seems to be right on time for us. You are a sweetheart and I second your prayers to those who are being devastated by the recent harsh weather.
Your card with Amelia is so cute! Gr8 job with the layout and the coloring hon. She's adorable! Hope you have a nice Friday and that the rains stop and the rainbows come out. Hugs!
