Mystery Monday featuring Zarah!

**I wanted to apologize upfront for having to set up comment moderation on my blog! I get more spammers commenting on my cards than my crafty friends, lol! Please don't let that stop you from leaving me a comment, I get lonely!;) Thanks for understanding!**

Hello and happy Monday! Is there such a thing? Well I think there is! Since I don't have to work anymore, lol! Today is my first real day getting into the "Don't have to go to work anymore" routine and I gotta tell you, I could get used to this, lol! I've made a couple cards today, did some laundry, mopped the floors and now I get to blog and watch Days of Our Lives, yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haha! I'll enjoy it for awhile but I'm sure I'll get bored in no time!
Okay sorry for the yip yap, you really came here to see who we're featuring for Mystery Monday on the CA&F blog, aren't you?:) Today we're featuring the lovely and super talented ZARAH!!! Here's her GORGEOUS card that we're CASE'ing today:
Don't you  love this? The colors are FAB and I love her distressing, really sweet card (I only wish I knew what the sentiment said, I bet it's a *HOOT!*)
Here's my angle on her card:
As you may or may not be aware, I was in the states on vacation for an entire month and I missed the November TGF release, EEEK! I was so sad to miss the party but as soon as I got home I inked these girlies up and had a blast! Cheeky Cherry Pie is my new all time FAVORITE!!! Isn't she sweet? I colored her with Copics and then sewed her onto a red mat. 

The dp is from October Afternoon's "Modern Homemaker" and I think this paper was MADE for this stamp! 

Make sure you check out the rest of the sweet girls to see what they came up with! I'm on my way to check them out myself!


I have one other card to share with you, using Saturday's sketch by Jen Shults!
Fun sketch, right? I just love Jen's sketches!!
Here's my card (I had to make mine a square because my circle was so big, lol!)
This little sweetie is another new release from TGF called "Fuzzy Wuzzy"! How cute is that name? LOL! I colored Amelia with Copics to sort of match the papers from the Curio line by Basic Grey! Love Love LOVE the Curio papers, I really did not want to cut into it but you gotta just get in there and USE it, right? That's what I keep telling myself anyway;)
If you haven't played along in the sketch challenge, you should! You could win a free DIGI! If you have never browsed the digi selection at TGF you SHOULD! There are tons of fun stamps in there and if you're anything like me, you love instant gratification! Digi stamps are PERFECT for that;)

Well that's all from me today! I'll be back tomorrow:) I don't know what I'll have, but it'll be SOMETHING, lol!
