Crazy cool...

Hey, hey, hey!

I was out last night so I didn't get a chance to watch Downton Abbey. I did make sure to record it though so you know I'll be catching up on the latest drama tonight... I can't wait! If you can't get excited for the little things then where is the fun in life? Right? ;)

So I made this card for the Double Take Tuesday challenge over on the TGF blog and it's just in the nick of time. They have a sketch to follow this time around and since I already had her stamped up I thought it would be fun to use the newest addition to the Creeper Crew, Friday Night. The original Friday has been a long time favorite Creeper of mine (it's all that curly hair) so I was excited to see her back in another style. She is looking quite hip and stylish so I wanted to give her some hip and trendy papers to go with. Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic was the first thing that popped to mind and I couldn't resist throwing in a bit of blue sky in the background as well. I love how the card looks like Friday is spending her day chillin' at the boardwalk. I actually paper pieced the hat band, shoes, and belt buckle out of shimmery gold paper and wish that the shine of it was captured better in the photo because it really dresses up the entire card. 

Okey dokey, time to scoot. Hope the new week starts off on the right foot for everyone out there. :)

She's one tough, hip looking cookie! Love the way you've colored her fedora!

She's really working that outfit. Love it!
Glad you got a chance to go out. You're right about the little things. Gotta remember that.
Have a great week!

I know I say it all the time, but I love this card! You have done a fantastic job with coloring her. I love the colors you have chosen. I know we all tend to go with colors like black or bright, but I love it how Friday Night looks like she would truly wear this outfit and her hat. It so ROCKS! Love this whole card my friend and I have to say it is truly one of my FAVORITE CARDS that you have made. :O) Hugs, Lisa
