Happy Monday!


Good morning, and happy Monday! I apologize for not posting this weekend. Chris was gone all weekend, and our schedule was packed every day. I won't bore you with all the details, but let's just say I spent more time in the car than I did at my stamping table! I didn't even get to do any stamping for World Card Making Day! UGH!

Here's a card I started Saturday, finished Sunday, and am posting today! It was going to be for a baby shower, but I decided it might be a fun "just because" card instead! Many of the supplies for this card can be found at All That Scraps. The card base is a Memory Box Granny Smith Notecard. I dry embossed it with my Cuttlebug and Spots & Dots embossing folder. The paper is from Doodlebug Designs. Matting is done on SU! Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I just *love* the Bitzy Bugz from C.C. Designs. This one is Umbrelli. I stamped the image on Bazzill Coconut Smoothie cardstock with SU! Basic Black ink, paper pieced the umbrella, and colored the rest with a blender pen and SU! Green Galore and Tempting Turquoise. The "raindrops" around the image are Splat Rain Dots from Cloud 9 Designs. The sentiment is from the Daphne/Donald Goes to School sets, also from C.C. Designs. I stamped it with Basic Black ink on Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I used a SU! word window punch to round off the end, then added a Bazzill white brad. I finished the card with Tempting Turquoise ribbon, and I mounted the image panel and sentiment on dimensionals.

I ususally don't use bright colors on my cards, but I really like this one! It's cheerful and happy! I hope I get a little more time to stamp today. Please stop back to visit -- have a great day! :)
