Have a little Faythe...

Hey there! 

It's Sunday and do you know what I'm excited for? Tonight the third season of Downton Abbey starts up here in the U.S.! I have recently fallen head over heels in love with this show and I can't wait to dive back into all the drama. Come 9pm nothing is moving me off my couch, LOL!

So for my card today I chose a Tiddly Inks digi to print out and color up. This adorable little lady is Faythe and she is one of the newer characters that Christy has created. Isn't she just the total charmer? I couldn't wait to pair her up with the Nostalgia paper pad because there was something about her look that I thought would go really great with the vintage colors and patterns of these papers. And have I mentioned that I love coloring curly hair... it's so much fun! :)

Alrighty, I've got the day off today but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to keep me busy... until 9pm that is. ;)

My niece used to have afro puffs when she was a kid. I think that's part of why I like this image so much-that and how pretty u colored her. Luv it!

So adorable!

My husband bought me the third season for Christmas and let me watch it already in November when the DVD was released because he thought it would be mean to make me wait :-) Enjoy!

Hi Amy, I love this! She is very sweet and I love that you have given her curly hair. I also really how you have sewn on the bottom of your card and used it to highlight your sentiment. I am so staying up just to watch Downton Abbey! :O) I have another LONG week ahead of me, but I don't care I have had to wait over a whole week (lmbo) just to see this so I am staying UP! I am wondering, have you had the way you load your pictures from your computer to your blog change? I can't get it to let me load them. Have a great day off. Hugs, Lisa
