Pretty Penny

Good morning!

As lovely as my day off was yesterday, I'm already hitting the ground running this morning... so I can't stay and chat for too long.
But that's ok, at least I've got a fun card to share! :)

Yep, it may be a quick card and kinda simple in its design but I have to say that this little Penny digi from Spesch stamps really makes me happy! As soon as I saw her and those fabulous tornado-like pigtails, I knew I had to have her. Unfortunately I hadn't gotten around to actually printing her out and coloring her up until last night and I honestly don't know what took me so long! I've gotta say, Penny sure is a lot of fun to color and just way too cute. :)

Ok, show of hands... who's ready for Glee tonight!?! I can hardly stand the excitement... it's Madonna night people! LOL ok... ok... I'll try to contain myself. I'm sure you'll hear more commentary about it all from me tomorrow though! ;)

'Til then, stay classy San Diego!

Amy!!!! Another cutie!!! I got her also but have not printed her out. I thought of her for my Mom's Mothers Day card. Now after seeing what you have done with her I think I will print her next. It's funny I think of you when I see the Glee ads. Have fun getting your fix tonight.
