Bad Hair Day??

Thursday, February 26, 2009

I'm not kidding - this pretty much looks like me when I wake up! Seriously. My hair is curly but thin, so it gets smushed, and crimped and flattened every which way while I sleep. I'm sure this is why my husband never gets up before me - probably too scared to roll over and look in my direction! LOL

I had colored this little guy up months ago and he just sat on my desk quietly waiting for me to put him on a card. Everytime I'd look at him I'd smile because...well, look at him: how can you NOT smile at a little guy with clown hair?! There's a sentiment on the inside that I forgot to take a picture of that says "I am only as strong as the coffee I drink and the hairspray I use." Hilarious isn't it?! I bought that sentiment from Whipper Snapper. The sentiment and image on the front are from Starving Artistamps. Just so you know, this is the big stamp version of the set. Doodle Factory offers a smaller scale set too.

I tried something a little different with this card; worked outside my comfort zone a bit, which is good every now and then, but I think it's definitely missing something. Brads? Ribbon? I couldn't think of it when making the card, so I just left it off. Still looks a bit empty, doesn't it?

Oh well. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget that tomorrow I start showing you sneak peeks of the new Hanna Stamps sets!
