Better with a friend...

TGIF everybody!

Last night I was in the mood to color while enjoying all of the new shows on tv. This premier week has been pretty good and while I have returning favorites, a few of the new shows have already hooked me in. Blacklist is probably my favorite new one so far, loved it and hope that it gets a decent run. How about you, any new shows to recommend or look forward to?

Because I had such a block of time to relax and color in I chose a Lili of the Valley stamp that has been on my desk begging for attention. It's called Story Time and I think it is adorable but coloring that whole scene was a bit intimidating so it always got pushed while I've been short on crafty time lately. I'm glad I finally got it colored though because I'm very pleased with how it turned out. And since I couldn't leave well enough alone I also added the puppy from the Me and my Dog stamp. My life is filled with either my dog or cat wanting to join me for a cuddle on the couch so I thought he was a cute addition to the card. :)

Okey dokey then, time for me to scoot. TTYL!

wow this Fabulous. I love it all!! Looks like me and Brooke sitting there reading while our dog is watching on. I read to Brooke last night while our dog was starving for attention only we were not as comfy as they are in your card. LOL Well I have to work tomorrow!!! Yuck! 6 days straight at up at 4:30am. Not looking forward to it. Oh that Sleepy Hollow series starting on FOX has been pretty good to watch so far!!
Have a Wonderful Weekend doll! Hugs, Heidi & Brooke

What a fun scene. Time consuming to color it but well worth it. Definitely Blacklist is great, so is Sleepy Hollow, and Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Amy, you never stop amazing me. I know very well just how talented you are, but WOW.... I love this card! What an adorable stamp. I love your coloring and I really love that you used that brad with the flower. Too cute. Hope you don't mind, but I am so going to borrow that idea. lol.... Hope your weekend of off to a good start. I work today and tomorrow, but for some reason now that I feel better from my slight cold my darn stomach is not being nice to me. I'll survive, but I think I'd rather have the cold, lol.... Hugs Lisa
