Let's go fly a kite...

Hey friends!

Is it too late to chat a bit about the Glee finale? I was so wrapped up in stamp previews that I just didn't get a chance to Gleek out about it before now, LOL! ;)
I thought it was a wonderful way to wrap up the season and even though I suspected that the New Directions kids wouldn't be winning Nationals this year (they've got to have a big goal for next season) I loved all of the new songs that they sang and the story lines where so great. I was relieved that Quinn didn't do anything to sabotage the performance, the Kurt/Rachel Wicked duet was killer and I totally went 'Awwwww' when Mercedes and Sam held hands at the end... so sweet! Now the only bummer thing is having to wait four months before we get to see where everything goes from here. I'm secretly hoping that Sunshine leaves Vocal Adrenaline because I would really love to hear more songs from her.

Ok, ok... I will now return you to the regularly scheduled programming... LOL! :)

This is a little 'just for fun' card that I whipped up because I had some left over cloud paper scraps and I thought it was high time (snicker, snicker) that I ink up Twirl Anya. This short haired cutie was looking like she was ready for some outdoors fun so I decided to take her kite flying. I made all the kites by hand, simply by cutting up some Girl's Paperie scraps and adding twine for the tails. Then I cut the whirligig from Anya's hand and replaced it with her very own high flying kite. She better hold on tight as I would hate to see her lose her grip and have to go chasing after it! ;)

Well, it's time for me to go get ready for work once again... keep cool everybody! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- The Girls Paperie (Jubilee), We R Memorykeepers (clouds)
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Twirl Anya), Studio G (mini alphas)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox creamy brown
Fiskars border punch
Divine Twine
Copic markers:
skin- E000, E00, E21, E13, R00, R20
hair- Y38, YR14, YR04, YR18, E18
clothes- G000, G00, G40, G12, R000, R11, R21, Y11, Y21, Y35, E55, E57

Leanne said...

Ahhhhh!!! This is wonderful Amy! I love her hair and those kites are fantastik! Terrific alteration, definitely a FUN card!
I was a little sad the ND didn't even make the top 10, I mean did that "kiss" really make such a big impact on their awesome performance? I agree on Curt's & Rachel's Wicked performance... Awesome! There are so many hopes for next season, I agree hopefully Sunshine will come back to McKinley High, she's so talented, who am I kidding they all are. Sam & Mercedes = love it! She finally got her wish! Hehe... until next time! TFS!

Hi Amy. This is just too cute! You did a fantastic job on her hair. I tell you just keep getting better and better and that's for a person that was already so talented. lol..WOW! I too hope that Sunshine head over to New Directions, but Madison just does not like her even though she sings along when she is preforming. Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa

Love your altering as always! What a fun idea to make her hold onto kite strings--perfect papers, too!

My daughter and her BF got to see Glee live last weekend in San Diego! It was their birthday present to each other. She said it was an AWESOME show and she screamed a LOT! I thought of you....

This is so gorgeous! I absolutely LOVE her hair, Amy!!!!!! Your coloring is amazing!! I didn't think about getting her before but now I gotta have her!!

I luv the Wicked duet too and some of the songs they sang but for some reason, Glee is starting to lose some of its original luster for me :(. (pls don't kill me :)). Don't get me Wrong -- I'll always be a Gleek!!! ;)
