Country Bumpkin Cutie Pie...

"Hay...ya'll" Welcome back fer a visit. Sit yer self a spell while I yarn a tale 'bout this har cutie. 
In the words of my new found fave-or-rite show, Duck Dynasty, this sweet little Farmer's Daughter is "happy, happy, happy!"  Kenny K is our fabulous sponsor this week for the newest linky party happening right now over at Make It Monday.  I think she turned out beautifully, until I got to the eyes. I had this crazy idea to make her eyes hazel like mine..LOL...ummmmm, she looks possessed now and I don't know how to fix it! I tried the copic pen that fixes thingies and it didn't work too well for me. So, any ideas out there on how to exorcise demons from your digital images would be greatly appreciated!
I reckon I ain't gonna keep ya long so youin' can mosey on yonder, but I do hope you found a wee bit of fondness in my circle scalloped card.  
Ya'll are right plum kind to stop in and be-fer I skedaddle, there's one more thing...
I have the sad news of telling you that this will be my last post for Make It Monday. I have THOROUGHLY  loved my time here, but I'm needing to take care of a few other things and so I won't be able to hang out with this most excellent crew of hilarious and creative women, and boy are they a HOOT!
Thank you so much to Michelle for allowing me to be a part of one of the MOST special teams in the stamping world. I'll miss you all tons, but never fear, I'll stalk you all whenever I can. :)
Okay, okay, I'll dry the tears now and move on about business because THIS is the important
Isn't this beautiful?  I love the softness of the colors mixed in with the dainty die cuts and that delicate background paper and definitely the well balanced floral spray, but what really grabbed my attention was the humor she included in her post...
"Sons are miracles too, though.....for all those like me who don't have a daughter :(
However, I now have a lovely daughter-in-law, Emma, and a grandaughter due in April, so that will make up for all the years I couldn't buy PINK !! (Sorry Nick xx)" that! 
Thank you so much for sharing your crafty talent with us at Make It Monday, Barbara :)

Hugs n' Happy Happy Happy Stamping,
Lisa xx

Visiting From Make it Monday

Rene said...

Oh my, I read that incorrectly...I thought YOU had a granddaughter due in April and I was trying to figure out HOW that was possible when I know you're 29 just like me (I've been 29 for several years now but who's counting?)!!!
Ok, you know I love your card...even if she is a long lost member of the Twilight clan...and you know how much I love you and how much I'm going to miss you on the team! Sniff sniff...crap, instead of coffee all over my desk I now have snot. Lovely!
I'll miss you!!!!
Rene :D

Tracy said...

Well dadgummit I'm shore they're a gonna miss ya at MIM sugar pie. :-( Are you sure this little gal ain't one of them children of the corn?? I've got her in my KK file so I'm gonna be keepin' an eye on her. What would I do without you to warn me about all the dangerous types out there? Other than her wicked eyes she's cuter than a speckled pup! Hugs to ya Twang!

Fabulous card hunnie, lovely design and your colouring is always so beautiful...don't see any demons in this little girl.. in fact there is quiet a twinkle there, I wonder what she is thinking!

Brilliant card Lisa, love the image and the entire layout! Hugs Frea

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

Okay, so take said possessed image over to the local Catholic church (do they have a Catholic church in your area?) and nonchalantly dip said possessed image in the holy water bowl on the way by. I'm sure God won't mind. Give it a quick shake, that way you'll be blessing everyone around you too so that when the image deposses it has no place to go. Voila exorcism complete. Although you might want to have her blessed by the priest on the way out just in case. (note: no offense intended to any Catholics out there).

Lisa, you will be sorely missed over at MIM I'm sure. Who is going to keep them falling of their chairs with laughter now??? Good luck with what you are moving on to.

A real sunshine card! A sweet little scene created with image and dies - nice!!!

Words and Pictures said...

Fabulous card, love the wood-look background, but she does look super-duper excited about something with those wide, dark eyes... maybe your new crafty adventures? Sad to see you go from MIM, but you won't be getting rid of me that easy!!

Hey Lisa!

I made it finally,sorry to keep you waiting, lol.

What a fabulous card for you to sign out on! She looks so pretty.......pretty freaky with those glowing eyes, no seriously your colouring is brilliant as always and the whole design and shape of this card is awesome.

Thanks for being part of the MIM team Lisa, you have brought so much fun and talent to the team and we are going to miss you. But I am going to have to swing past here regularly as I have grown accustomed to your wacky sense of humour.

Love and hugs

Michelle :o)
