Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope that you had a lovely weekend. Mine was uneventful. It did snow here. October is usually my favorite month of the entire year, season-wise. But it has been COLD here. And Snowy?! Hello?! not even all the leaves have changed color yet! Other than the snow, which is gone (mostly) today...I have nothing to complain...I mean talk, about! LOL!
Isn't this Megan stamp from The Greeting Farm adorable!? I am always attracted to images (stamps or otherwise) that have curly hair. I have VERY thick, VERY curly, dark hair. The picture I have of myself on my blog is on a day that I had my hair straightened with a flat iron. I only have that done on special occasions. :) Someday I dream of having my hair permanently straightened. However, we are looking at a cost of $750-$1000 for that....and seriously, if I have that money just laying around waiting to be spent, then I am sure I can find something else more practical to spend it on. You know like some bill or a new dryer. :( Plus, my Orla, also has curly hair....and how am I suppose to teach her to love herself the way she is, if I am changing these things on my own self? Gosh, being a mom fills a person with so much guilt!
ooops....back to the card.....So I love curly haired images and ones that look like they might have a sassy little attitude! And with her hand on her hip, Megan looks like she is very Sassy! LOL! Also, notice that her mouth is open...which to me looks like she is probably telling someone just how it's going to be. Heeheeeheee. I have a sassy sentiment stamp that I thought would be perfect with this image....but I was trying to make a card for someone I have not seen in awhile...not someone I want to expose my "sassy" side to. LOL! By the way, can you tell that I am totally diggin' these easel cards?! So easy to make and such a nice way to display our cards! Suzanne has some great instructions HERE.
As mentioned in the title this card was made for 2 challenges. The layout is from Friday Sketchers. And I also complied with The Greeting Farm challenge of "No Frills". Only "hard" embellies could be used.
Have a Sensational Monday!
