My Buddy

"My Buddy, My Buddy...wherever I go, he goes. My Buddy, My buddy and Me!"

Good Morning, Friends! Happy Thursday to you! I couldn't help but start off with that catchy little tune from the My Buddy (an 80's toy) advertisement! Ohhhh and then shortly after My Buddy came out, Kid Sister was also flying off the shelves (and the tune continued to be stuck in our heads)! Can I just say...I LOVE the 80's. I can't help it. Even though those were wild and crazy times (so I've heard), I had a blast growing up in the time of Cabbage Patch Kids, Stirrup leggins, Get in Shape Girl leg warmers, side ponytails, jelly bracelets, Debbie Gibson and Kids Incorporated (because I wasn't allowed to watch MTV when it first started). Good times!

Okay, but my card truly has nothing to do with the 80's...the whole buddy theme had me off on a tangent! :)
My card for you today features Amelia in the new 'Buddies' Oliver and Amelia set, released this month at The Greeting Farm. I just love this stamp! I had a kitty growing up and I cuddled him and carried him around just like little Amelia here.
For the layout of my card, I was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch #133. Fun Fun Fun!

I also decided to go with the Cosmo Cricket papers again...I couldn't help it! You'll see them again tomorrow too for my Farm Fresh Friday card. *grin*

I hope you have a terrific Thursday and I'll see you back here tomorrow! And I'll see you on Saturday too for the Busy Beauties Release!

Oh how cute is this!!! Yes I do remember all those things! Including snoopy snow cone machines, EZ bake ovens, belts over long shirts, big hair, and bad perms. Love the colors and of course that paper. Fabulous job on the stitching.
