Dig papers and stuff

Soooo excited for my girl to come home in 3 days, 15 hours, and 24 minutes... hee hee  I miss her so much!  AND I also can't wait to see her friend Missy, who is coming to stay with us for 2 weeks.  I booked our rooms at Santa Cruz for one week from Wednesday, that should be a lot of fun.  We're just going for one night, then we'll do some other fun stuff like the beach, the zoo, etc.  We have to take Missy out sight-seeing, as she's never been here - so we'll probably do some driving up North as well as down South.  Cannot wait!

Spent all day yesterday in my craft room and made this card for the:


I just bought this sweet Alice image from Some Odd Girl and had already printed her out and colored her when I saw the current challenge at The Altered Alice - worked out perfectly!  The papers are digi papers - I don't know about you all, but I have more DP than I could ever use.  I certainly have no excuse buying MORE - but I can't stop myself.  I get tired of using the same ones, even though I love them!  LOL  And I run out of my favorite colors/color schemes quicker - red is one of the ones I almost never have!  So anyway, digi paper is my friend.  I am amazed at how many free digi papers and packs you can find online.  Google is your friend - use it!

I also decided to play along with the:

and I combined it with the:

This image is a freebie that the very generous Berenice posted on the Karber Facebook page - and I paired her with some yellow digi papers I had, cuz I was just in a yellow mood.  Added a little silver handbag charm (I seem to be in love with this charm), and done.  Peace.
