Just another manic Monday

Hola!

Well after all that Halloween fun it's time to get back into summer mode with my card for Maire's Monday Mania challenge over at CA&Friends. It's a nice and easy one this week to use ribbons and/or bows on a card. Seeing as how I've probably got enough ribbon to wrap myself up like a mummy (LOL) it's always good to have an excuse to use a little now and then. ;)

For my main image I did a bit of altering by adding DeeDee's head to Summer's body... I just love how she came out, perfect for a day at the park during summer break. Seriously, head swapping is always an easy way to change things up and get even more mileage out of your stamps. :)

Alrighty then time for me to get to work on things... told ya this week was going to be busy!
TTYL!

Beautiful card Amy! The colors are fantastic! 72 and sunny sure beats the sweltering heat we've had here.

What a great stamp combo! I love her little rainbow shirt and super cute hair :0) That thermometer just cracked me up because it needs to go a little higher than 90 lately!

Well aren't you just tooo clever - I would never have thought to "head swap"! Too funny, just saying that cracks me up! I do love your card too - gorgeous color scheme and, of course, perfect coloring!

I just love how your card came together- rainbow t-shirt, rainbow paper, rainbow thermometer! I'll have to try cutting off Anya's head once in awhile (gasp!)- I always forget to try that!
