I could use a nap

Mornin'!

I'm gonna be quick as it's shaping up to be a busy day... so by now you may have noticed that I like a good sentiment for my cards. I especially like the fun Kid Quotes stamps from Inkadinkado, they crack me up! I recently ordered a few more for my 'collection' and I just love this quote and had to use it right away. But when I went to match it up with a perfect image, I got nada... nuthin'... zilch!
For a moment I considered abandoning the sentiment for something else but I really wanted to use it soooooooo...I decided to draw something to go with it. It must have been meant to be because I had this little gal inked and ready for color in about ten minutes, she just flew onto the paper. :)

She doesn't have a name and there aren't any plans for her at this time but other than the fact that I drew her on Georgia Pacific and the colors bled like crazy on me, I really like this little miss attitude and just had to share the resulting card with ya. ;)

She's awesome Amy!! I just got in two sets of these stamps too and can't wait to get them inky.....though I'm right in the middle of finishing off a set of cards for my Mum for Mother's Day and I don't think they're quite appropriate, lol!! Maybe when I'm finished those I can get me a wee bit of these Kid's Quotes going on. :)
I can't believe how quickly you got that drawing down - she's just perfect. I so wish I could draw. *sigh*

I got a few from my local Micheal's but you have had some really cute one's that I haven't seen there and I love those quotes! :-)Traci

You've got to be kidding me? How can you not turn her into rubbah? She's darn adorable with that sassy attitude . . . seems kolohe "rascal" in Hawaiian. It reminds me of how I did my DD's hair when she was an infant . . . oh, and even now! hee, hee! Amazing Amy! :)

Alyssa Clawson said...

AMY! I LOVE her and HAVE TO HAVE HER! PLEASE tell me she will go to rubber in the future!!! She has WAY to much attitude to not be a stamp. Maybe you could call her Prissilla since she looks prissy. ;) As always, AMAZING job.
