Look Out World!!!

Happy Friday everyone! :D I'm so glad the weekend is here, it's gonna be a busy one! I'm almost done with ALL my Christmas shopping so I hope to get some more done this weekend, and then we are going to a Christmas party on Saturday. I know it's kinda early for parties right now, but it' was the only weekend that everyone was able to shall be FUN!!!! :D

For my card today, I knew I wanted to use Jen's SFYTT. She has a circle where I put my square image, but I'm thinking this will still work. I had colored Cooper a few nights ago and knew that I wanted to use my Star Struck paper with him. Isn't he adorable?!?!?! And as I sat in bed last night watching TV I decided to get up and finish this card!!! It came together pretty quickly since I was already using Jen's great sketch! :D

Stamps: Look Out World (Paper Pretties) Paper: Star Struck & Chocolate, Buttercup, Twilight & Sweet Leaf CS Ink: Chocolate, Twilight, Buttercup & CTMH Markers Accents: Ghost Stars (Heidi Swapp), Chocolate Brads (CTMH), Paper Piercer & Pop Dots

As I'm typing this up, I just realized this was an all CTMH card except for the stamps & ghost accents...yeah ME! :D I was thinking the two designer papers were gonna be too busy together, at least that's what my husband said. But I decided to do it anyway and I am soooo happy with the outcome! :D Well that's it for me right now. I need to finish getting ready because I have to be at the doctor's office soon and then I'm headed to work. Thanks for stopping by & I hope everyone has a Fantastic Friday!!! :D
