A beautiful holiday

Hello again!

It rained all day yesterday, needless to say that made it a very indoors kind of day. So I had time to play with some of the stamps that have been collecting over the past few months, just begging for some ink. 
I adore the Kaylee's Closet set from Some Odd Girl and how Kristy is releasing small wardrobe add-ons to it each release. With my love of altering and playing with my stamps this was a must have. You are probably scratching your head as to where Kaylee actually is on this card and I admit that I got a bit head swap happy. As much as I love short haired Kaylee (and she will be showing up on a card soon) I am also keeping my fingers crossed that Kristy will make a coordinating long haired Mae's Closet set in the same pose so that all of the clothes can be interchanged. Until that happy day, I decided to borrow Mermaid Mae's head to get the look I wanted.
The papers are all scraps from my stash because as much as I enjoy digging in to new paper pads, the scraps are kinda out of control at the moment. I really should do a purge but when I find myself with some free time I'd much rather be creating than cleaning. I guess I just have to hope that I get productive enough again to make a dent at least. ;)

Oh, and did you see that All That Scraps is now carrying a few of the Some Odd Girl stamps? It's all fall and Christmas right now but I'm sure the selection will grow as ATS continues to add more stamping goodies after the big move of the store this past summer.

Alrighty, have a good one everybody!

As always stunning card Amy and I love your alterations.

So happy for you that you finally have your mum back home - she'll get lots better in no time now. And so nice to be able to visit you on a daily basis again.

Love your altered Kaylee/Mae and how you've coloured her. Also love the colours. I haven't had a lot of time for crafting recently and I need a clear head to enjoy crafting (or maybe a clean and new crafting space LOL), so I find myself reading my digital copy of the Hunger Games on my new e-reader. Love them both LOL.

Amy, I have you to thank (or blame:) for introducing me to SOG's when you did Winter Mae, Gifty Gwen and Tree tRimming KAylee! Now I am in love with these girls and I think your a genius taking Mae's head and popping it onto Kaylee's body! Love that. I'm crossing my fingers too for a Mae version. Beautiful card!
