What did I do to be so rewarded?

I don't know what in the heck I did to deserve the reward of Mr. Mojo's ongoing visit, but if I can figure it out, I'm going to do it again! Tonight, that Mojo dude didn't feel like coloring. He wanted to play with paper. I'm all about paper, so I yanked out an image that I colored a while ago and prepared to slap her down on a card. I had a lot of fun distressing, inking, rooting through my embellishments for just the perfect thing, and so on. Here's what I came up with:
Ain't she cute? She's from the Greeting Farm. As usual, I colored her with my handy-dandy copics. It was a while ago, so don't ask for colors, k? I gave her little scarf a striped pattern with different shades of pink, rouged up her little cheeks, added some highlights with a signo pen, and added some shine to her buttons with glossy accents. I think she goes really well with this Doodlebug paper called Sweet Cakes, don't you? After all, she's so cute and sweet!

I'm entering her in the challenge at:
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes!

The weekend is almost here. Does anybody have any fun plans? I've got my belly dancing class tomorrow night, then my brother and I plan to go see "The Hunger Games" afterwards. I've got to yank down my warm weather clothes from the attic, put away the winter ones, clean my house, and maybe craft a bit. My nephew's got a soccer game on Sunday, so I'll go cheer him on, too! I can't cheer too loud, though. He's 15. Apparently, cheering aunts are embarrassing. Who knew?

So adorable. I love your fun mix of pp's. Not ones I would have thought to put together, but I love them. You should do a video tutorial of you talking out loud through your thought process of picking the papers for a I would love to hear it. I always love what you do. You tend to use the really cute graphic papers I wish I could. I tend to stay with subtle and it drives me bonkers. TEACH ME your
