Man... I feel like a woman!

LOL!
I've got that Shania Twain song running through my head as I'm writing this post. If you're wondering why, it's because I've done a bit of stamp altering on today's card that makes me chuckle.

You see... as soon as I got the new Wild Sprout Eric and really looked at him, I thought that with the addition of some feminine features his hair could also work for a stylin' trendy girl. So I inked him up and used a baby wipe to erase his eyes, eyebrows and mouth before I stamped the image on my cardstock. Then I just followed the steps outlined in the altering tutorials that I have linked in my sidebar to trace Dee Dee's eyes and Charlotte's mouth onto the blank face. After that I just colored the new 'her' up, lopped off 'her' head and attached it to digi Wild Sprout Charlotte's body and voila! Meet Eric's twin sister, Erica... LOL! :)

As you can probably tell, I was having a real good time playing mix and match on this one. ;)
And besides the altering the rest of the card came together really quickly. I just ripped a sheet out of a Making Memories notebook, cut it to size then added the rub-on sentiments and gems. Quick and easy!

Oh and one more thing before I sign off for today... I've still not heard back from one of last week's candy winners.

pixie sparkle, you have until this Saturday, April 17th to contact me at pete_danger@hotmail.com with your mailing addy and claim your candy. If I don't hear from you by then a new winner will be chosen and announced on Sunday's post.

Oh! Oh! Oh! Tonight's the night my fellow Gleeksters, can you stand it?! I'm positively giddy with excitement! I say bring on the music and witty banter... Glee is back baby! :)
Hopefully my work day will fly by so I can dive right back into good old McKinley High. ;)

Toodles!

Amy darlin!! You're a genius!! This just made me laugh n laugh!! I could instantly see what you had done and I thought it outrageously funny!! I love the new Eric and he arrived down here in the mail today (I can't wait to get HIM inky) - but this does totally work!! Erica is fabulous, darling, and the background DP is superb.
Hoping your day flys by too.....and you can get your Glee on tonight, Sistah!! Bless. xx

Amy she is just too adorable!!!! I love her hairstyle. She really rocks it. When I first saw him I too thought he would make a beautiful girl, but I am not as talented as you (and I don't have this stamp :( so) I am really glad you made her. You made her. I love this card too, talk about cute! Like you I am hoping for a quick day at work. GLEE!!!!! I am sure I will be in stitches tonight. Have a great day my friend, Lisa
