You rock!

Good morning!

So far this weekend seems to be flying by much like the past week did. I'm having a great time but not getting much done that I need to. That means today I have to buckle down and get busy. Wish me luck with that... I really hope I don't get distracted. LOL

Because I didn't make it into my crafty room, again... I'm sharing the second card that was published in the premier issue of Designed to Color magazine. This one features Creeper Madden from The Greeting Farm and she was actually one of the four Maddens that I colored up for the Copic grey comparison chart that I did for CMC. I thought that her kinda punk look would pair up nicely with these cool American Crafts papers that I've had in my stash for ages. That and I also couldn't wait to use this cool cassette tape stamp that my pal Lisa sent to me... thanks Lisa! All in all, I think this card pulls off a fun 80's retro vibe that makes me smile. :)

Toodles!

Amy this "Like Totally ROCKS!" lol... I of course love Madden, she just looks so 80s. I really love how you used the cassette and how you colored it. You always give me really fun ideas on how cute everything can be made. lol... I wish tons of luck getting down to it today. Madison has a friend coming over and I am hoping that I will be able to stay focused and get my work done as well. We'll see.. lol... Sending you loads of sunshine! Hugs, Lisa
