Ginger Gingery Gingerness

:) It's the WEEEKEEEND!! YEAHH!! By the time this post goes live.. I'll probably be.. driving back from my boyfriends and planning on getting my ass back to bed for a few more hours at least. I can see myself turning night into day over the weekend getting commissions and DT work finished up for the next few days. Just how I like to roll. Best stop by somewhere and get some coffee soonish!

Wanna know a PLUS?! Mother Goose is away down south for a Hot Rod show. You're probably thinking.. well what does that mean?! Ohhh!! I won't have her trumpeting around the house at 9 o'clock in the morning like a pet elephant tryna wake me up accidentally on purpose. Hell no!! It'll just me be and my little cat Shadow all weekend long. Bliss.

So onto what you've actually clicked onto me for. My card! :) This was made for a girl I know so much about but haven't really spoken to properly before. She's a sister of a friend of mine who I work with. Guess what?! She's GINGER!! You guys probably know my obsession with red hair and stuffs.. well.. THIS was the PERFECT opportunity to colour me up some ginger prettiness. So I did. I chose Book and Bedhead from Saturated Canary.  I've coloured her with PMs and FMs and left the image panel pretty big. I done this in order to add more interest to the card without adding bulk. This card was originally going to be posted - so I had to keep it as flat as I could. Low and behold.. it was eventually hand delivered, so I coulda layered it up Lou Mac style. Never mind, huh.

I used scraps of paper from My Minds Eye - Madison Avenue for this card. That paper pad seems to be real tricky to get a hold of now?! I've stamped a Hero Arts sentiment and finished it off using some alpha stickers from Cosmo Cricket. All four brads are from SU!'s subtles collection. I die cut the flowers using a PTI die and used more scraps of paper to layer the flag trim behind.

I had a total blast colouring this beauty. I'll list the colours just as soon as I actually find where I wrote them.. if I did at all!!

Enjoy your Saturday, whatever it may bring! Over and OUT.
