     Well here we are, it is already Sunday night.  What happens on the weekends that make those two wonderful days of the week go by so fast?  I have no idea, but as a working Mom I sure wish I could fix that problem. lol..

 Hi guys.
      I know you didn't stop by to hear me complain about the short weekend I had, so I am going to get right to my card.  I still need to do my nails and that can take me an hour, so here we go.
     Today's card is actually one that came from my wanting to practice some new hair color combos as well as skin tones.  I was smart enough on this one however to already have my papers picked out so that it wouldn't take me forever to match up the colors of the clothes with papers that I have.  I have also been on a kick once again of switching heads and bodies from my Greeting Farm stamps.  I just love to do this and I think it must come from when I was little and just loved to play with my paper dolls and change their clothes all the time.  Or it could come from all those hair cuts that never grew back on my Barbies.  lmbo... I don't know.  I just love to do this.
     I of course picked out a couple of my favorite Creeper Crew stamps.  I really wanted a lot of hair to work with for this color combo, so I used  Creeper Crew Madden and Creeper Crew Noah for his beach bum,  kicked back look.  I have to tell you that I love how Madden's hair came out and I am so going to use this combo again.,
     Once I had my Madden/Noah stamp put together I still couldn't figure out what kind of card I wanted to use her on, so I headed over to The  Greeting Farm to see what the FFF Challenge was for today.  Well, I was in luck as this week they are looking for stitching or stitches on your card or project.  Well, my paper pad just happened to have faux stitches in both the titles as well as on the DP.  Yay for ME!
     So, as you can see I used the title that was pre-printed on the paper pad and some great beach paper to go along with my Madden.  I like to think she has been walking around watching all the surfers and just enjoying a great day at the beach.
     Yes, I am still on an enamel dot kick that I don't seem to want to change for quit awhile, so I pulled out some orange ones to go with the title. I am sad to say that in my pictures they look so different, but in real like I assure that the oranges do match quit well.
      Ok guys, have a wonderful Monday and I will talk at you later.

Supplies:  It would appear that I didn't take
pictures of my Copics, and I didn't write down
my list.  I will try and add it all tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi guys.

     Can you believe it, I am back for a second time in less than a month?  lol.... Like I said I had a great time being creative this weekend, and with any luck I intend to get just as creative come Friday.  :O)  Wish me luck....
    While I was being creative this weekend I decided to make a quick but fun CAS card from my Die Hard club that I belong to.  This month we received this really cute flower set with some awesome sentiments to go with them.  I really wanted to make both the sentiment and the flower stand out, so I stamped and die cut the two different sizes of the flower onto my dp and used just that with a border die to make very simple, yet happy and Spring time-ish.  :O)  
     Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far/  We have been so fortunate to have lots of sunshine so far with the highs at about 58 degrees.  Oh how I just love this time of year. It's been so nice, that we bought new tennis shoes for the four of us and we are starting our walks in the evenings until this weekend gets here so we can get up and enjoy a little longer walk. 
     Ok, got to go paint my nails and head to bed.  Have a great day, and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

It's Your Day...


 Hi guys,
      I am so happy to have had a few minutes this weekend to actually make a card or two.  They aren't anything over the top special, but WOW, did I have a fun time making them.  I am so wanting to pick up some new Greeting Farm stamps, but for now with all our medical billing flying through the door it will have to wait.  :O)  Not like I don't have some cute stamps to color, but you know how that goes, always want more.  Can't have too many to play with. lol.... Anyway....
     So because of the stamp issues,  I went through my stamps and some of my dies and picked out a couple that I wanted to play with.  While I was doing that I picked through my paper pads and  decided to pull out a few that remind me of Spring.  It has been so nice the last few days that I am totally in the mood to make a few Spring cards before I get to making a couple of  Birthday, Easter and Mother's Day cards.
     I picked out the 'Lucky Bunnie' stamps from TGF as they can be either for Spring or for Easter.  This card,  as you can see is for Spring and all the beauty that goes with it.  I just think this little guy is so sweet holding that flower.  I just had to color him up and put him with some papers that had a bit of a rainbow look to them,  I think it makes for a great Spring card.
     Ok guys as it's been way too long and I do have work in the morning I am going to leave it at that.  Before I head off to bed I want to say "Welcome" to my new followers.  I am so happy to have you here and with any luck and a bit of work I am hoping to get back to a daily post.  I hope you enjoy my cards.  I am hoping to get back into more Copic colored cards as that is what I love to make.
     Talk at you all later.
Hugs Lisa G
