This is me

Hiya sweeties!

We had a crazy thunder and lightening storm blow through here yesterday evening but other than worrying about losing power I gotta say that there is something pretty cool about a heavy spring rain. Watching it bounce off the road and the clean, fresh smell of it just can't be beat. :)

I have a really fun card to share with you today and I made it for Shaela's "This is me" Monday Mania challenge over at CA & Friends. The whole point of the challenge is to create a card that describes you in one way or another so of course I had to do a bit of altering. I used Stella's head with Paul's body to create a little mini me because I wear my hair short and if I'm not at work or out and about I like nothing more than the comfort of my sweatpants to kick around at home or take Puppy Little on a walk in (I think of it as channelling my inner Sue Sylvester, LOL).
Then as I've mentioned before, orange is my favorite color so it was a must have on this card as was drawing up a little pup pup because I don't go very many places without my little guy. And finally the fun Kid Quotes sentiment pulls the whole thing together because it totally suits my sense of humor. :)
All in all I really love everything about this card which makes me think I succeeded in creating something that is totally me!

I really hope to see you all play along this week as I'm so excited to see all of your mini yous, LOL!

Toodles!

How totally gorgeous are you Amy and your little "guy" is an adorable, faithful friend. I really love this idea......I think I'll try and plan some time to give it a go.....somewhere, somehow this week. Its a crazy week....some ongong birthday celebrations going on (mine), last week at work before the boss goes away (wahoo, love him and my job, but definitely desperate for some timeout), plus ongoing appointments at the hospital with my Mama. In need for some massive therapy time with my ink and my rubbah. xxx

So if your dog doesn't like someone that means you shouldnt like them either, does that mean if I don't like someone's dog I shouldn't like them too? lol. Ahh, the things I ponder.
This is TOO CUTE and what's funny is I was think of this exact head/body combo! Her hair is kinda like mine and I am uber casual so the outfit is perfect. Love the little dog too, super cute card Amy :0)

I smiled when I saw this on the CA&F blog....it's so you, indeed! Right down to the little Yorkie and perfect sentiment! Love this!

LOVE this Amy. You look so cool in your sweats. Your coloring of your hair is just fabby. That sentiment ..... OMG that's what I tell my son all the time. When you get older and you date a girl and she doesn't like dogs then you need to find a new girlfriend. I LOVE THAT SENTIMENT. Gonna have to get it. Love your creation for the challenge today sweetie.
