A Penny!

Welcome to the weekend everyone!! 

Remember that old saying, A Penny For Your Thoughts?!  I do and have always loved it, although it's barely said anymore with my generation.  Everything is LOL, TFS and BFF, so I am pretty excited that A Penny For Your Thoughts is in a new set called, Simply Put, in Paulette's store at TLC!

I just got this new image from Some Odd Girl (yay!!!) called Tiny Tia Bow and I think she is just perfect with the sentiment. 
Isn't she just positively precious?!  And I think she looks absolutely fabulous in Salmon!!  Everything is colored in Copics and distressed in Making Memories Distress Ink.  The polka dots on her dress were dabbled in Glossy Accents (although not sure if you can tell!).  I added a brown crocheted trim that I've had since I first started card making (it's been sitting in my trim-scraps flower pot forever!!) and I can't remember who it's by (sorry!!).   The amazing crocheted flower is through blog candy I won from Dorcas....I wish I could take the credit for it, but her hands are what worked the magic.

The current challenge over at SOG is Lift Another Odd Girl, and for my card I chose the fabby creation by SOG DT Robin McKinley to lift, which you can view by clicking here!  Thank you Robin for the inspiration!! 

Today is absolutely GORJUSS here in Jersey and I hope that wherever you are you are having a bit of sunshine, too!

  14. This is so cute! You did a fabulous job lifting from Robin. I love the the eyes have just a little bit of coloring. All of your coloring is wonderful. I love that sentiment, too. Although, now a days it's more like "a dollar for your thoughts". Inflation, don't 'cha know. =D

  15. I'm back from my trip! Thank you so much for still visiting my blog while I was gone. You're so sweet! And who would've thunk about putting a penny on a card?! Now that's genius!

  17. Awww girl...this is simply too cute! I love that image and the fab way you colored her. And I can't believe that you added the penny to go with the sentiment! What a totally unique idea. And that wonderful croched flower and the croched trim work so wonderfully with that great paper you used. And just a probably don't want to know my thoughts ;) lol

  18. Love how you ran with the inspiration but made it your own! Its lovely! Thanks for being Odd!
