Happy Hump Day to you all!

Did anyone catch season one of the show 'United States of Tara'? We don't have Showtime on our TV, but I saw the pilot episode for it on one of our Dexter DVD's, and I was instantly hooked! I finally got the DVD towards the end of last year. IMHO it's hilarious! The Man is a little disturbed by all the potty mouths but if you can get past that, it's such a great show with a really interesting storyline. Toni Collette is an incredible actress...and Australian to boot! Enough said. :)

It's Whimsical Wednesday time again and this week's sketch (DDSC18) by little Jack Diedrich is so easy, even a caveman could do it! Head on over to the blog to check out the sketch as well as today's featured Daredevil, who happens to be the uber creative Kris Palakiko!

I was so excited to be one of the few people who snagged this new, soon-to-be-released Happy Day set from The Greeting Farm! I loved the little girl in the set, but since Jack designed this sketch, I thought it appropriate to use the little boy for this card. (The set is officially being released March 1st, just in case you wanted to know!)

I'm off to check out what the other girls have whipped up with this sketch and you might want to do the same!

Thanks so much for popping in today! Tomorrow I have a Whipper Snapper card to show you. Talk about long time-no ink! :)

I'm sooooo envious of that stamp! He reminds me of my little boy and I'm just the opposite of you, I actually liked Oliver but not Amanda so much, LOL.

Your card is just wonderful, the colors and coloring are just fantastic and I love the clean layout. Love little Oliver!!
