How Sweet?

Good Morning! One more day until the weekend!!! Today's card is part of a little card kit that I sent to my chicas Kadie and Sandra. We started this last year as a way to "stamp together" since we are all from different parts of the country. We took a little break, but now we are back. When the girls found out I got some of these Kimmie's, they were eager to play with them so I sent the kit this month. This image is Drucilla. I just love how at first glance she is sweet, but if you really take a look you might want to think twice about not being on her good side. Being that I love funny stuff and just couldn't help myself, I paired this with a Kraftin' Kimmie Everyday Sentiment. The papers are from My Mind's Eye. I put Drucilla on a slant to subtly emphasize the crazy. I did place a button on the card that was not in the kit. Not exactly sure who this card would go to maybe as a break-up card or someone with a sense of humor who needs a pick-me up? What would you use it for?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. Please go visit my girlies Sandra and Kadie and see how they used this kit. I know you will be inspired by the talent of these lovely girls.

Too cute!!!!

Hehehehe!!! I saw the sweet AND twisted part of this card... then looked again and saw the pins! lol!!! Hmm.. It reminds me of myself after too much coffee, homeschooling and picking up the kids toys that have been strung out all over the house! hehehe! I have an odd sense of humor, as do many of my family and friends.. so this would just be a 'fun' out of the blue card to send to them.
Great idea with the card kit swap. That sounds too fun!

Have a great day

What a beautiful card,
and I just really love this stamp.
She looks so funny to me.

And.. I think I'll send it to someone with a sense of humor who needs a pick-me-up card.
