Happy Thursday!
I don't know where I was going with this card...but this wasn't it. hahaha I also wanted to try doing her hair black as she kind of reminded me of my little Maeve...but I am scared to attempt the black hair. Maybe it will end up looking like a freaky helmet or something.
It was 10pm when I started this card...and I really shouldn't have started a card that late. I had another one to make first...then I mounted these new Magnolia stamps that I got...put together a new Ott light I bought for myself...then decided to start this. I am not the type who can leave a card that is not done. So here it is 2 am...again...and I am blogging. Why didn't I wait until tomorrow to blog? Because I never know what tomorrow will be like. Depending on the children it can take me all day to type one email. Never mind a blog post. Then Guinness will come along, as he does, and rub up against the outlet where the computer is plugged in and cut off my juice....losing everything I did get typed. :P Sometimes I feel like I am living in a Sit-com. hahaha

Orla and I are going to see the play The Grinch That Stole Christmas tonight in Boston. I hope it's good. One of the theaters in Boston offers disount tickets to Brownie troops for various shows. Last year we went to see Annie, it was awesome! The girls really enjoyed it! And so did I! Alot of people go to see the Boston Ballet Nutcracker every year...I went once and have to admit that I was not that into the ballet. Then for several years they kept calling me to ask for donations. Finally last year I asked them to stop calling. They (politely) wanted to know why. I straight out told her that I was bored at the ballet. The woman seemed a little stunned. hahahaha....They haven't called me again. ;)


Have you noticed that I decorated my blog for Christmas? What do you think? I find it all a bit distracting. And crowded. Do you? Should I go back to my plain blog? My feeling won't be hurt if you say yes. :)

Have a Spectacular Thursday!

Gorgeous! Love the coloring. Black hair is tough, I tried doing one for my daughter and couldn't get any highlights in it at all. Is the bow a Magnolia stamp too? Very pretty!
