Happy Monday morning to you all. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I'm over my Sunday night blues (until next week) and am ready to take on a new week! OK, maybe not ready quite yet, my eyes are stilling trying to figure out how to focus again this morning and I definitely need to head downstairs for a nice hot cup of chai. After that I will definitely be ready to take on the new week. Spring break is over and we are back into our normal routine, which funnily (if that is a word) means a trip to the doctor (story of our life). Beckett's infected hang nail still isn't healed so we have to make a dreaded trip back to the doctor today. I need lots of prayers for this trip as I have a feeling it isn't going to be a pleasant one! Anyway, on to today's business...first of all I wanted to thank Danyelle over at Hangnailz and Papercutz for awarding me with another "You Cheer Me Up" award. I thought it was so sweet of her. If you haven't been to her blog, you should definitely check it out. She is funny and talented and her blog is a joy to read!
Now, as for a project today...months and months ago I bought this funky 3 pack of stampers (I think they were from 7 Gypsies) that I have never used, so yesterday I finally broke them in. They are groovy hand held thingys, kinda like stampers that you would mark something "paid" except they have a little twisty thing that you can change the sentiment. I think each one has like 8 or 10 sentiments on it and you just dial up which one you want. There is a guide on the front that lists the sentiments and the # you need to dial in for the correct one. Is any of this making sense? Maybe I'll take a picture of them later and post it. Anyway, I used them on the dog card that I posted yesterday ("missing you") and I used it again on today's card ("Life is Good"). I can't believe I haven't used them before now, they are so versatile. This card once again uses a wishRAK image and I believe it is from Inky Antics this time. The turtle is colored with gamsol and Prismacolor pencils (again) and the little black flowers are rub-ons (I think this is the first time I've ever used rub-ons on a card) from Heidi Grace. When I stamped the sentiment it was a little off center so I evened it out by adding a little rub-on to the end. Of coarse there is some glitter (because God forbid I make a card without glitter on it somewhere) on the flowers. The pink glitter is from Doodlebug and the black glitter on the flower centers is Martha Stewart. The paper is all SU!
Thanks for stopping by today and for all of you, I hope LIFE IS GOOD!
