Miss Anya is losing her head...

Hey, hey, hey!

It's looking to be another beautiful fall day here and I am totally lovin' it! I got the chance to sit in the park for a bit the other afternoon... the sun was shining and the light was bouncing off the lake so that all the trees along the bank seemed to be dancing with this cool shimmery effect on their orange and yellow leaves. I can't help myself, it is times like that when I can imagine a bit of fairy magic at play in this modern world we live in. ;)
It's not looking like I'll actually get to go out and enjoy anything like that today because the sun is already starting to set by the time I get off of work and when it does it gets chilly... fast! But that's ok, I just have a feeling this is going to be a really good day.

My card today is actually the first of three in a coordinating set that I made using a Making Memories journaling notebook and my new Miss Anya Lounge set from TGF. Well, not just the Lounge set because as you can see I did a bit of head swapping and actually have L8R SK8R Anya's head on this one... I just thought it was a cool looking combination. :)
Something about this Lounge set has me reminiscing about hanging out in the dorms in college so it's not really a wonder that I've geared the card towards the younger gals/teens. This isn't to say that I still can't slack with the best of them in my layered tees and sweats, LOL!

Anywho, have a good one and I'll see ya in 24. :)

Hi Amy. I think she is adorable! I love your coloring as always and the color combois awesome. I know what you mean by the beautiful days. It just smells so good this time of year and the geese are flying low coming into the lake with the awesome colors of the setting son. How could anyone not love a fall day. Next week I will be working 8 to 6 everyday, so I am sure I am going to feel like I don't get to see daylight. :O( Oh well, more stamps?! heehee Have a great Saturday. Lisa

Great colors and I totally love the head switcheroo you did ;0) You're brilliant as always!

Nancy Thomas said...

I like the way you switch your stamps around for your own purpose. Adding a stripe to scarf is about as adventureous as I get! Great coloring as always.
