Voices In My Head

Good morning! I sure enjoyed my weekend and was not ready for Monday morning to come crashing back so soon! Maybe I've got spring fever! As much as I don't enjoy Monday mornings, at least I am feeling better than this girl

(click to enlarge)

This funny image is from Squigglefly. She looks like she's about to pull her hair out doesn't she? I colored her with copic markers and added a little bit of chalk around her. The designer paper was picked for the colors, and I like the bit of glitter in it too.
It is from DCWV mat stack. The words are computer generated in a font called Australian Sunrise.
I added different colored buttons to the side just for added interest and tied a purple knot at the top. I'm wishing now I had tied some thread through the buttons, but I got a little lazy. I think I'm going to pull those buttons off and add some thread before I send it.

Kristin gave me an award yesterday!

I was going to ask if you were looking in my window this morning b/c that's what I looked like...but then again, you wouldn't be seeing THIS belly! I am NOT a Monday lover and boy does it show!

This card is awesome! I love what you did with the image with the colors you used, especially on her pants. WOW...the way you came back with the brown to shade really makes them stand out! I bet you whipped this up in just a few min, where I would dwell on it for hrs! I wish I could be your shadow for one day! :)

Congrats on your award and to the Squigglefly team as well! All of you deserve to be recognized for your outstanding talents and sharing them with others. A phrase just popped back in my head from my teaching days "plays well with others"...yeah, this describes y'all too! ;)

I LOVE your spring trees card! I've never seen or used the "flower soft". I'm going to have to find that- it looks great! All of your work is wonderful!

This is what I feel like today!!! ('cept you would've had to color the nose red too!!!!) I do love your card though Holly, and I think it is fine without the threads - but I think you are probably gonna change it anyhow-huh? Sometimes we just gotta do what we think no matter what anyone else says!
