Just sittin' here thinking about you...

Hi ya'll!!! Did ya have a MERRY Christmas??? I sure hope so!! I had a FANTABULOUS one, and just like a spoiled rotten kid.... I got EVERYTHING I asked for!! Woo-hoo!! I TOLD YOU I was a GOOD girl!! What??? You didn't think otherwise did you?? Bwaha-ha-ha-ha!!! Seriously, I have the BESTEST family a girl could EVER ask for!!

So whatcha think of my little card today?? Ain't she a doosey?? I just LOVEEEE how this card turned out. I needed a get well/pick me up kinda card for a co-worker who's been battling a really strange blood disorder for several months now, so I wanted to send her a little card letting her know I was thinking of her. This is Lulu from Rubber Romance. When I first saw this stamp, I fell in love with the rollers in her hair, plus I thought I could use her for a ton of different occasions. I stamped her onto some SU Very Vanilla and colored her with my Copics to match this DP from Cosmo Cricket. To make the rollers stand out more, I added some pink eyelets to the center of each one. They look real don't they? I used my SU scalloped border punch along the edge of the vertical border piece and matted the DP with some scrap orange CS. I stitched around the edges of each piece and tied on this great saddle stitched ribbon from Papertrey Ink.

I'm off today so my daughter and I are going to do a little shopping and get a pedicure too. Woo-hoo! (I gotta pedicure gift certificate for Christmas! Yay!) Ok, be sure to leave a comment below and let me know whatcha think of her. Oh, and I'd love to hear about your Christmas too! Have a great Monday!!
