Whimsie Doodles Monthly Challenge

Happy Friday!!!

Boy, am I excited that today is FRIDAY!!  I am exhausted from yesterday, but I have to find the energy because tonight is my monthly crop!  I have one project and then the rest of the time is Project Life.  I have been talking and talking about getting caught up but something seems to always get in my way.  NO MORE!!  I need to finish up January!!  That is my goal!

As you know this month I am the guest Design Team Member over at Whimsie Doodles stamps and they are having their monthly challenge.  The challenge for this month is to use only your scraps to create an awesome card!  I knew exactly what I was going to use.  I just finished making a layout using the Valentine paper from Crate Paper.  I had a ton of scraps!  Here is what I came up with.
I used 80's Lizzie for this card.  I think she is just WAY too cute.  She is really rockin' that hat!  To make the papers POP I matted them all in black cardstock.  Love that look!

So we would love it if you stopped on over Whimsie Doodles and played along with us!  YOu could win a fabulous prize or even a guest spot on their design team!
