Season's greetings

Olo!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means... Glee night! I'm totally intrigued to see how Gwyneth Paltrow does as the substitute teacher. I know she sang in that movie, Duets, but I've yet to watch it so I don't know what she will be like. And if that wasn't exciting enough, today is also supposed to be the release day for the Glee Christmas album! Woot, woot! I am SO going up to Wally World after work where hopefully they will have it out by then. I say hopefully because my local Walmart has been pretty lame about getting things out in a timely manner. So I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high about listening to new tunes on my drive home tonight. ;)

My card today features the new Beanie Anya from The Greeting Farm. I got my order of new stamps late last week and I've been dieing to ink them up and play... they are all just so cute! Now you may have noticed that altered Beanie just a bit by giving her a hair cut. Being a short haired girl myself I just thought the look would suit her. I also drew in little silver skates on the bottoms of her boots to make it look like she was skating on a pond with the trees reflecting on the ice. I think it makes for a pretty peaceful and serene little scene. :)

Ok, time for me to get ready for work... wish me luck on the new Glee cd! LOL

Bought it off Amazon's MP3 site this morning and it's pretty good! Something "different" and fun :0)

Oh Amy! She is just adorable! I love her blue wintery feel. She looks like she could skate all day listening to her Christmas sound track of Glee... I have to admit that today can not go fast enough for me. I am so ready to get my new Glee CD and to watch the show tonight. I have watched last weeks about 8 times now. I have also listened to some of tonights music and Madison gets so mad at me for listening before it is actually on. heehee What can I say I just can't wait. I don't know if you've seen any of the previews, so I won't spoil it but lets just say I know you are going to love it when Mr Shue goes Green. heehee I can't wait to hear what you think. Hugs and wishes that Walmart makes your deadline, Lisa

awww I love Beanie on skates w/ her haircut, LOL! Too cute! Gwyneth, well, she didn't get boo'd off the CMA's which is pretty rare when an outsider comes in, esp one frrom Hollywood-so I think you'll be pleasantly surprised ;) Have fun!
