This Image Stands True.....

Good Morning!!!
Ahhh, it's officially the weekend and I couldn't be any happier! I'm looking forward to some rest and relaxation before getting back into the swing of things. I want to remind you to check out the Jazzy Inspirations blog and play along with us. You could be the next Jazz Cat of the week!!!!

I guess you're wondering about the title??? Well, I want what's in her hand just a bit fruitier please! I need to relax and she looks like she's having quite a time!!!!! Not an alcoholic by any means but once every couple of months or so DH & I go out to dinner by ourselves and I have my Pina Colada....I'm feeling the *need* for that right now!

Anywhoo, have you ever received a card in a swap and loved the image but not the rest of it? That's how I felt about Ms. Drinker above.....the *actual* card didn't appeal to me so I recycled the image to go with something else that I had created. I touched up her coloring just a bit, attempted to add some color to the stark white background and called it a day. She'll be brightening someone's mailbox soon and I hope she brings a smile to their day!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your visits especially when I'm showing something that's not *brand new* Enjoy the rest of your Saturday! I'm going to check out a couple of challenges in hopes of sparking my interest so I can make something new for you all to enjoy......wish me luck!!!
TTFN,
Hugs,

  5. Very modern and cool card! You did so well presenting this young woman.

    It's been one of those weeks for me, no stamping time at all, just run, run, run! You would think at my age things would be quieter, guess not now, between grandkids schedules with dd's and dsil's work needing me to do the pick-ups and a sick dh, no time to do anything at home!

    Hope you have a quiet weekend, Jackie and get to go out with your dh for one of those relaxing drinks.

    Hugs!

  9. Great card. For my drink this would be a glass of water with a lemon in it. I'm not a drinker. Water is the only beverage I imbibe in.

    I like that you recycled the image. I have done this. I got a card in a swap and I loved the image but the rest was so so. I cropped out the image and made my own card out of it.

  10. Such a cute card! I don't drink but I can totally relate to needing to un-wind. Hopefully you will find some time to do something nice for yourself like a mani/pedi or a massage!
