I made this card for my daughter, who starts her VAY-KAY-SHUN today.
She is one EXCITED girl. Free Smiley Courtesy of She's been looking forward to these two weeks off for some time now. So, I just had to make her a card! She gets kinda pouty if I don't make her one occasionally. I spoiled her when she was in college. I sent her a card EVERY week in a surprise package. What a TERRIFIC mom I am!! {he-he} I don't know about that, but I do wuv her bunches!!

I stamped Evelyn, one of my GREAT finds at CHA, onto SU Very Vanilla and colored her with my Copics. I plan to enter her in the Art Impressions card challenge and one stipulation is, you cannot use any other stamps other than Art Impressions. Oooooh! So I thought, how can I make a scene??Hmmmmm?? Well, I ended up just drawing it. It looks pretty good for a first timer, don't ya think? I was pretty proud of myself, anyway. I thought about this card all day yesterday and I knew what I wanted it to look like. It turned out just like my sketch and I just love it and I know she will too. But I have to admit, this is me every weekend! Ha!! I am such a bum on the weekends. Oh, and of course when you look your worst, is when you need to go to the store. Am I right? That's when you think, "Ok, I'll just zip in and out really fast and nobody will see me". RIGHT!!! Never fails!! Somebody is ALWAYS there that you know. Yup! Been there, done that!! Ok, have a great day and leave me a comment and let me know what you think. HAPPY VAY-KAY-SHUN DINKY!

  1. Ok so I pull this card up and I thought ohhh, Evelyn, but before I looked at the card closely I began to read... and quickly put my hand over the card so I wouldn't see it. I can't wait to acually see my Evelyn card. Jessica
