A Fun Card!

Happy Wednesday, my friends!
Things are finally getting back to normal around here...YAY!! So today I just had to make something...just because! I've been having lots of fun over at Digi Darla's Challenges lately. This week they have a "Laughter is the Best Medicine" challenge! You KNOW I had to get in on this one!
I'm using a Digi Darla image called Coffee Grandma. I had so much fun with her! I almost put some lipstick on her teeth but I thought you would just think I goofed! lol I used lots of Stickles on her clothing, mug and eyelids. Then I added Glossy Accents to her lenses, nails and lips. I used a paper from the Basic Grey Lauderdale collection for the background. Doesn't she look like someone who hangs out at a retirement home in Ft. Lauderdale? I bet she's the life of the party! :o)
When it came to finding an appropriate sentiment, I headed straight to my file of freebies from Create with TLC. Paulette is so generous in gifting us with her  wonderful work. I thought this one was perfect for this sassy Grandma!
I have a long list of projects I hope to work on this week. Since it's already Wednesday I'm not very hopeful that I'll finish ALL of them. I'll be happy to knock one or two off the list! Hope you're all having happy days and enjoying some laughter! :o)
