Oh. Em. Gee...

Ok, Downton fans... things came up last month and I wasn't able to finish watching season 3 on PBS. So I bought the DVDs and just finished watching it through last night. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! Tell me it isn't true! I can't believe it and I still tear up even now just thinking about it. Why? Why? Why?
Sigh... so how long do we have to wait for season 4 to begin and all these questions that I now have floating around in my head to be answered? Whatever it is the wait will be too long.   

Well, it would seem that I'm on a roll with the challenges these days. As I was flipping through the Sweet Girl paper pad for my card yesterday I spotted this aqua chevron print and right away the Double Take Tuesday challenge came to mind. This week's is to use aqua and chevron together on your card so this paper got both taken care of in one fell swoop! Something about the prints energy suggested that I needed an image with attitude so it was time to grab a creeper. ;)
Piper had just the look that I wanted so I inked her up and went to town. Not only does she go great with this mix of prints but she also gave me an excuse to use this cheeky sentiment that I've been dying to get on a card. Fun and funky is what came to my mind once this one was done.

Ok, I've got a shorter day of work to get ready for so I should get going.

Because he didn't sign up for season four.

Love your card and you've coloured Piper so well.
