Brightens my day...

Hello, hello! 

It was another excellent episode of Downton Abbey last night... I'm so addicted to this show! It is a total escape and part of me would love to dress up in those amazing clothes. Any other Abbey addicts feel that way too?

So, I made my card today for the Double Take Tuesday challenge over at the TGF blog. It's a sketch this week and I was very excited to have the new Wild Sprout Gracie to play with for it. I don't think it's a secret that the Wild Sprouts are one of my most fave Greeting Farm cuties and I was thrilled to see a new one added to the family with this latest release... it's just been too long!
Now you may notice that I have done a bit of altering to Gracie but that's only because I saw her as a short haired kind of girl. So I simply wiped away her braids and drew in the short wisps in the back. I think it makes her look a bit sassy. :)

Ok, I suppose I should go get myself ready for this brand new week. TTYL!

You, Amy, are pure genius! I never think outside the box like you and it is so refreshing to see you make a stamp and make it new!

Hi Amy, I think your card is just adorable! I love all the happy colors and I think your button on top of that flower is awesome! I am really loving Downton Abbey and I think is it so sweet how the headman was so concerned out the one maid having cancer. :O) I have watched them all so far, but I am still not a 100% with all the names. Mostly I remember Anna and her husband. Love them both and hope that works out. I was very sorry for the middle daughter last night. She deserves to be just as happy as her sisters. It is very hard being middle child let alone the middle of three girls. lol... Anyway, I can not believe I am saying it, but I can not wait until Sunday to see what happens next. My all time favorite movie is 'Somewhere in Time' and it is placed in the early 1900's. The first time I ever watched it I was a teenager and I have LOVED that period in time ever since. What can I say, I love my Copics, but I love the old days and all the bustles and men being men and women being proud of it. lol.. Have a great night my friend. I have to paint my nails then I am off to bed. Hugs, Lisa
