Let the fun begin...

Hiya friends!

Are you enjoying this fine Sunday? It's been sunny but very windy here so I haven't been very ambitious about getting out and tackling any yard work. Plus, once I get a few things done off my "to-do" list I'll be heading to the hospital to check on my mom. So far we are still on track for getting her back home tomorrow and nobody is looking forward to it more than her. :)

I recently added Monday Morning Creeper to my TGF collection and thought it would be fun to ink her up for this week's Double Take Tuesday. It's a color combo challenge this go round and we are to use pink, yellow and turquoise together on a card. I went to my scrap bags to find a random mix of papers that would work but once I had a few pulled I realized they were all from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection... so much for random, LOL! 
Now you may have noticed that I did a bit of altering to Monday, while I love her sassy short hair and overall look, I didn't want her to have drowsy eyes or a skull on her shirt for this card. So I wiped them away before stamping and then used my light box to trace on Royal Pain's wide eyes and brows. The stripes on the shirt were even easier as all I had to do was connect one end to the other to complete the lines. Now she is bright eyed and ready to take a spin on her birthday scooter. ;)

Ok then, time for me to make like a tree and leave... later!

Oh Amy, I am sorry to read read about your Mom. I hope that she is feeling better. I've had mine out and it is no fun when you get that first attack. You feel it from the front to back and can't really breath. Tell her I send my love when you see her. Now, for this adorable card! That is so you and I just love how you made Monday Morning look. She is too cute and I love your alterations. We have had the same kind of weather as well and it hasn't made me want to go for a walk since Thursday. :O( Oh well, I'm sure there will be more days and chances for that. Have a wonderful Sunday. I am trying to get a card or two made today. Take care, hugs Lisa

Glad your mom is doing better and will be home soon. That's always a comfort. No place like home and your own bed.
Your card is darling and greatly altered. I wish I could do that with my body parts I don't like. Wipe them out. LOL Great card and wonderful colors. Love your card
