Sweet thoughts to brighten your day

Happy Friday! I don't know about you but this week went by super fast! We have a longer weekend being Monday is Labor day so woot woot!!!  Okay onto my card today...

Grabbed my Farmers Market and played with the apples again, this time in green. Yumo!  They are stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. Scored around my border and added a few pearls to the front and dimensionals to the back. I have some fun green polka dotted paper for my background with lace trim and a ribbon bow. My sentiment is die cut with a Spellbinders die and I sponged over the die before I removed the card stock then added a pearl. Voila!

Have a Grape day

I do like this pun of a sentiment! This adorable fat happy mouse is called Grape Dreams and I am not sure he is even available anymore with House Mouse. Sorry if he isn't. I stamped him on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. My sentiment is stamped with black ink on vellum paper and placed over the image. Really softens up the coloring doesn't it? Fun gingham like general paper for a background with a fancy Spellbinders oval shape for the frame. Voila!  This is yet another card for the friend who does not like mice. hee hee  Although I have to say she is getting a kick out of all these mice cards.  :-)  So have yourself a Grape day!

What do I see

School starting! ha ha  Yep school officially started today. Time sure does fly by when you have fun. Excited for the new year and all it has to offer. The boys are in football for the first time and being that I LOVE football it is exciting to see them play. We found out what position they will both be playing. I have one as Quarterback (swoon) and one as Wide Receiver (swoon), needless to say I am in heaven! They came off the practice field for the first time in full pads... ACK!!! I am going to be fighting the girls off with a stick I tell you what! ha ha  Anyways.... I will have a photo of them all geared up here in a few weeks. Until then how about a cute card?

This darling little guy is called Henry with seagull. I have him on white card stock colored with various Copic markers. Die cut in an oval and popped up on dimensonals. A simple card with a Die-Light Nostaglia  with a ribbon panel cut in kraft card stock and a few jewels added to the banners. Voila!
Have a fantastic day!

FS394 Hot flash or just hot?

This weeks Featured Stamper 394 is Coconutmuffn. I choose this Go For the Icing to case. Kept most of the layers (was a sketch so I removed a few), kept similar colors and a bunny. Changed the papers, layers and omitted one of the ribbons.

This happy hopper is called Air head. Adorable right! I have some sparkle added to the fan breeze as he keeps cool. Tied my ribbon off with a button and twine combo. I gave this to a friend as it was in the 100's and super hot at the time. She got a kick out of it. :-)  Hope you can play along this week! Have a great day.

Fun in the water

If we all looked this cute in the water we might never come out. HA!!  Diver Henry is on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. Fun background using Large Nested Tag Die Light, cut in navy blue card stock. Added some fun colored banners with Small Banners Die Light and some silver brads added. Easy Peasy.
We have football practice, bbq and a swim party today. Full day for us, how about you? Whatever your plans I hope you have a great day!

Sail away with me

Good morning! If you haven't noticed I adore the latest release from WOJ as of late. Besides these are for the Ronald McDonald house card collection I am working on. The kids adore Henry and so do I! I have for you  Helmsman Henry. Who can resist this fun little sailor? I have him on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. Wrapped a bit of twine around the end to add a charm from the Pirate's Treasure charm jar. Added a fun edge with the Postage Stamp Die-Light along the right edge a bit. Voila! Enjoy your day!
