I Love Rock and Roll So Put Another Dime in the Jukebox Baby!

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope your week has been a good one. It has been a really nice springlike week. The sun has been shining the temperatures moderate and the wind not too bad. I am so hoping we are in for spring. Izzy as I have said before, has been loving it! All afternoon she played outside. She actually went and found some of my shoes and walked with them outside. You should have seen the mess poor daddy had to drag in last night! LOL! She loves to read outside as well so every evening we have to pick up like fifty books and drag them back inside!

Now for a quick Izzy story. (Sorry no picture, I seem to have now caught what Izzy has and didn't feel much like taking pics.) Izzy has this obsession with cleaning her tray when she eats. Normally she isn't a clean freak when it comes to her toys or her room or her clothes, only her tray. Usually at dinnertime, the moment she finishes eating she puts every last piece of food back on her plate and then hands it to us. If she doesn't like something, she does the same thing, picks it up and hands it to us! Nice isn't it? LOL! Well last night, Jason scooped up some mint chocolate chip ice cream for her. On a side note, Jason is ecstatic that she likes this flavor. I don't care for it so I never let him buy it. Now he has an excuse to get it. She is so like her father. Anywhoo, we were sitting in the living room, the two of them eating their ice cream when Izzy walks up to Jason with the remaining scoop of ice cream in her hand and says, "Izzy done. Izzy done." Poor Jason had to grab it out of her hand quickly before it dripped everywhere and then explain to her that when we are done we don't pick up the ice cream. It was too funny!

So are you wondering about by title? Do you have that song stuck in your head now? Well I am here to announce a new contest going on now over that the Club Anya Blog!

So are you ready! Here is my creation! Very Joan Jettesque if I might say so myself! LOL!

Pretty crazy right! I just couldn't help myself. I had to have some spiky hair! I started "Joan Jett" by stamping Geisha Anya by The Greeting Farm on white card stock. I masked off the top of her hair and flower and then drew in the spikes with my copic mulitiliner pen. When I felt like I had enough hair, I colored in my image using my copics. For the rest of her body, I cut out the bottom half of her kimono, pasted on the mini skirt from Wardrobe #1 and the legs from Dress Me Anya. To finish her look I cut out a guitar from some wonderful DP by DCWV I received from friend and fellow DT member Jacquie. For the card itself, I followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch and layered on some DP from DCWV and Autumn Leaves along with red, white and black card stock. To finish the card off, I tied on a bow with some awesome new ribbon I picked up at Michaels and added my sentiment that I printed off on the computer and cut out with my nesties! I hope you like my rockin' card!

Now go off and see the incredible creations made by my amazingly talented DT sisters!!! OMGoodness I was blown away when I saw them and I literally laughed out loud! I couldn't help myself they are just too, too cool!
Thanks as always for stopping by today! Still catching up so will definitely be around later! Smiles!
