Hello there...

Good morning!

Mmmm... a day off... there is a lot on my home 'to-do' list so it is nice having some time to focus on them. Hopefully I can get everything done quickly so that I can play a bit as well. ;)

Anywho, the card that I made for today was totally just for fun. Geeky Mae has been printed off and sitting on my desk for awhile and when I saw the colors in this paper they looked very geek chic to me so I paired the two up. The color scheme wasn't the only thing that I liked with Mae, considering she is supposed to be kinda geeky and nerdy, I also liked that the print is dictionary text. It's like this little Mae has been busy studying and taking notes with her tabs and paperclip in place. Oh, and I couldn't help myself... that blank tab needed something on it and that funny smiley stamp seemed to be a good fit. I can totally see Mae using that smiley when she writes an email or something. ☻

Okey dokey, I hope you have a wonderfully crafty Sunday my friends. See ya in 24!

Mae looks fabulous in those colours and with that background. Love the fun tab, too!
I'm trying to get a little work done today, but I had a very crafty Saturday.
Have a wonderful Sunday, Amy!
