Sweet Cakes

Hey there!

How's it going? I'm feeling on top of things so that is always good. I think it helps having crummy weather because there aren't a lot of things to distract me from what I need to get done, LOL! :)

So yesterday I was cleaning my desk and trying to get things organized a bit and this card became a result of that process. You may recognize it as some of the last remnants of that Basic Grey Lemonade card kit I've been trying to use up for ages and ages... along with a few other odds and ends that were just floating around. For the main image I did a bit of head swapping between the Sweet & Toxic creeper girl and the Creepy Cake Royal Pain digi, both from TGF. I have to say that I'm in love with how she came out and I like to call her Sweet Cakes for some reason. Probably because I colored her up like a sugary confection and even added lots of Spica glitter on her dress that resembles sugar in the right light... boy could I go for something sweet to eat right about now, LOL!

Anywho, have a wonderful Sunday my friends! :) Supply list:

Oh Amy, she is just sooo sweet! I am not usually a pastel kind of person, but she is just soooo sweet.... I am waiting for payday to get my Sweet & Toxic set and now I can't wait even more. This card just makes me smile. SWEET! Have a great day. We were going to winterize the pool today but it is really raining. Jerry is happy I guess I will just have to craft. :D Hugs, Lisa
