Heard you had a bad day.

 I didn't make the three card quota I was striving for yesterday but did finish it today.  As soon as I saw this stamp I knew exactly who I wanted to make a card for and what I wanted to do with it.  My daughter is having a bit of a rough time with being a first time teacher.  I guess these kids are a bit tough on her at times and hard to handle (on the upside she does call with some great stories of what is very typical of 1st graders) so I wanted to cheer her up.  This stamp is one I bought from Addicted and it's from Unity Stamp called Frazzled.   I went for the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches #45Stacey's Stamping Stage - Curtain Call #30 had the perfect colors for what I had planned for the card.
I stamped her twice and colored her with my Prisma pencils.  I cut her hair and socks out and popped them up.  I had a "screw head" brad for one eye and a little button for the other.  I should have tied some thread though it but oops.. too late.  The DP is from a Halloween pack by Recollections.  There are such great images on these papers.

The rest of the challenges below are just bonus on a very special card for a very special person.  My daughter.
