Coppin' an attitude

Olo!

So I had some happy mail arrive the other day in the form of an always exciting TGF order and I couldn't wait to get these new stamps inky! I was lucky enough to snag one of the new Creeper Collection sets so I had to decide which one of the new kiddos would make it onto a card first.

If you would have asked me a week ago which one it would be I think I would have said Harlow. But surprise, surprise this crazy, cranky little Jill was really speaking to me last night. Probably because I've had a couple days here recently that I felt a lot like how Jill looks. I may not have been able to take a nap at the time but I did have to take a few deep breaths and 'get over it'. Thankfully it worked and I managed not to bite anyone's head off, LOL!

I paired Jill with some more of that fab MME Stella and Rose paper. I thought they suited her style of dress and I really liked the red zig-zaggy pattern because it seemed to amplify her sense of agitation. Though I did add the ribbon and rose to soften the look a bit too because I didn't want this going too, REE-REE-REE (imagine the music from the Psycho shower scene playing here...) ;)

I gotta say, making this card was kinda therapeutic because I am feeling much, much better now. Yeah for Creepers! heeheehee :)

Well, that's it from me today... have a great one!

LOL... I am sorry, I really shouldn't laugh but you just have such a way of making see and feel what you are writing. I know exactly how you feel. The bad think for me when I get that way is that I get Pi**ed as I know I am in a bad mood and I hate being in a bad mood. :O) I love this card and she so speaks to me. You have made my day. Thanks so much. Hugs, Lisa

LOVE this card - the sentiment is too funny.... And it's definitely not Psycho-esque! (Not enough red... LOL!)

Adorable - love all the MME - I've been creating up a storm with it too. I used that same pattern for a sentiment just yesterday. Love that stuff and you've showcased it and the stamp in a fun way today.

Hey Amy!! It's been a while....thank you for your lovely comments.
What a cute, cute card!! I'm so in love with these new MME papers and I love how well you've dressed Jill to coordinate with them. :)
I love those Inkadinkadoo sentiments too - you inspired me to buy my first couple of sets of these last year - though sadly they are still waiting to get inky. :(
Hope you are feeling less blah-blah and more la-la today. xx
