Grumpy Georgia

Mornin'... hope this weekend is treating you well.

I have to admit that I got sucked into a pretty lazy day yesterday. I watched a couple movies that I hadn't seen yet, played round with a new 'toy'... but all of that put me a bit behind on the things I still need to get done before going back to work tomorrow. So I'm hoping to get myself in gear today and really , truly tackle that to-do list. Wish me luck! ;)

So some of you may remember this little gal from the first time I used a sketch of her on one of my cards a few months back. Well now Georgia is here and available as a digi stamp in the ATS store beginning tomorrow!
She may be a bit of a grump with more than her fair share of attitude but heck, don't we all have those days? I know I sure do, LOL! So since I had already played up Georgia's twisty side on my first card, I thought it would be fun to use her on a rather non-traditional Christmas card this time around. She certainly looks like she's getting nothing but coal in her stocking this year! :)

Oh and just FYI on the papers I used... they are the new Crate Paper 'Snowy Days' line and I ordered the 6x6 pad. Now don't get me wrong, I think the papers are super cute BUT they did not scale down the patterns for the smaller paper pack like Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket and Sassafras all do. They just took 12x12 sheets, cut them into four pieces and packaged them up, which was extremely disappointing considering that it meant the tree top had been chopped off and I had to cut into two sheets and piece it back together for my card. Needless to say I won't be buying anymore of their 6x6 paper pads unless they start actually scaling down the patterns too, hey Sassafras ran into the same problem with their first mini paper pad and it didn't take them long to realize their mistake so I'm hoping Crate follows suit. Until then just consider this my crafty PSA letting you all know that you are better off just getting the 12x12 size if you like these new papers. ;)

Ok, now I know Traci has her own fun take on miss Georgia today so head on over to her blog to check it out... you're gonna love it!

Fab card and awesome new image, Amy! Thanks so much for the heads up re the 6x6 Crate paper pads. I love their 12x12 paper and so was really excited to hear they had produced 6x6 pads but ... I'll stick to the 12x12 now until they sort them out!!! Thanks!!! Hugs, Sem x

I loved this little girl before she was a stamp so I will definitely be getting her now that she is one. Funny about the CP 6x6 pad - coincidently I actually have a bunch of cards to share on my blog next week using that pad also. I did notice that it wasn't scaled down but honestly it really hasn't bothered me that much. (Nonetheless, I will go back and edit my blog post to mention that). Most of the patterns are small enough that they don't overhwhelm the card. I used that tree on one as well but lazy me just let it hang right off the card as is!

Hi Amy. She is just so cute...This is the kind of week I had all last week. I am usually a happy person and when I do feel like this it puts me in a worse mood as I get mad that I am mad. :D Yes, I am complicated...heehee Anyway, thanks for the headup on the paper. I love crate paper, but I would be upset to see that they didn't scale down. I mean whats the point. Maybe that is why she looks purturbed..lol Adorable card! I just love it. Have a great day and wishing you lots of mojo to get your list do. Hugs, Lisa

Another adorable image Amy and I love the paper you paired it with. I'm the same way about scaling the 6x6 pads too. I just got this pad also and went "grrrrrr...". LOL. Amazing card anyway, even if you did have to cut in to more paper.
